And now, Intern Margaret on Father’s Day brunch options for this weekend in Portland:
Hey breakfast eaters! As you all know, Father’s Day is just around the corner—June 17th—and as you wrap up those ties and socks, it’s time to start thinking about where you might want to go to kick off the day with a good breakfast or brunch.
Trader Vic’s Portland is hosting a Father’s Day Brunch and Dinner. They have two specials going on for the special day. They will have an oven roasted prime rib prepared in their world-famous wood fired Chinese oven and served with roasted brocolinni, garlic mashed potatoes and a homemade horseradish sauce. The second special is a little lighter with jumbo prawns in a scampi butter. And if that isn’t enough, they will have a port-whiskey punch, consisting of a healthy pour of bourbon, orange juice and a little simple syrup with a 1 ounce float of port wine served over ice. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Brunch will be served from 10:00am until 2:00pm. Dinner will be served from 5:00pm until 11:00pm.
But don’t limit yourself! Here is a “short” list of unique places to try out for Father’s Day:
