Where to Eat for Father’s Day

Posted on June 14, 2013 | 10:52am

Father’s Day, the annual celebration of dads everywhere is just a few days away.  Each year on the third Sunday in June is the day dedicated to showing your appreciation for your father.  The concept for the holiday was founded in 1910, but was not issued a presidential proclamation until 1966. Father’s Day became a permanent national holiday six year later in 1972.

Father’s Day has spread to many countries throughout the world and varies in celebratory customs.  In the United States, the holiday is generally associated with giving your father a gift to show your appreciation and gathering for a meal.

As part of the new-look Avenue of the Arts, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel, The Silver Trumpet Restaurant and Bar always serves delectable fare and unique cocktails.  For Father’s Day, The Silver Trumpet has put together a menu featuring dad’s favorites.  Enjoy a 16 oz. grilled porterhouse steak with a loaded baked potato and seasonal vegetables.  Dad will also enjoy the half-price beers!  Call 714.442.8593 for reservations.

Costa Mesa 60th Anniversary

Posted on June 11, 2013 | 10:15am

Since its incorporation into Orange County in 1953, Costa Mesa, a city that was once known as Harper, has grown into the leader of the arts in OC.  Although the City of the Arts is celebrating its 60th Anniversary June 28-30, the name change took place in 1920 when a local teacher won a contest to officially change the name of the city.  Meaning “coastal tableland” in Spanish, Costa Mesa’s name refers to the city’s geographical features as a plateau near the ocean.

While there certainly aren’t many who remember the rural farming town of Harper, modern Costa Mesa has gained a reputation as the place to go to celebrate the art of the stage, dining and shopping.
