For 50 years, visitors have arrived in Costa Mesa from neighborhoods around the corner, and from countries around the world.

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.
