Father’s Day is Sunday, but many dads like to treat it as a weekend-long celebration, beginning tonight right after work. Rightfully so, but their significant others may disagree, and that’s where gender differences can stop by for a visit. After all, some would claim it’s as simple as women loving shopping and men loving explosions, but not us.
Many women favor dressing to the nines for Mother’s Day, joining crowds of other mothers at Sunday brunch and sipping chardonnay. Guys don’t mind dressing to the ones and forking chili out of the cook pot while standing over the sink. Another beer, please.
In that spirit, we offer places Dad might enjoy if he’s got a hunger goin’ and prefers homey over haute. If he can’t make it on Sunday, then another time (call first for days and hours.) If he balks, let him eat quinoa.
In the interest of fairness, we’ve alphabetized this recommended list:
In honor of Father’s Day, Ray will serve fried pork ribs, a dish rarely seen in California. The taste is like a collision between fried chicken and a pork chop. Pour freely from the proprietary sauces.
Move to the huge but tender grilled bone-in ham steak, then maybe to an omelet stuffed with avocado, broccoli, eggplant, mushrooms, olives, squash and tomato. Then dial 911.
