The Gateway is serving up fun for Father’s Day weekend with endless dining, entertainment and specialty shopping options. Utah Foster Care’s Chalk Art Festival transforms Rio Grande Street into a work of art June 14 – 16 and California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) is getting into the spirit by donating 20 percent of each bill to Utah Foster Care when diners mention the Chalk Art Festival or bring in a flyer. CPK will also give away a stainless steel Nexgrill 5-burner propane gas grill to one lucky dad. Entry is free by signing up for CPK Rewards.
There are so many ways to plan a creative and fun Father’s Day that go beyond the traditional tie gift, including a three-course brunch or “Go Big” dinner at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, tickets for a show at Wiseguys or The Depot and a delicious array of dining and shopping options. Families can visit one of The Gateway’s many restaurant options including newly opened Seabird Bar, ‘Bout Time Pub & Grill, California Pizza Kitchen, Costa Vida, Dave & Buster’s, La Barba, MidiCi Neapolitan Pizza, Panda Express and Tucanos.
Dave & Buster’s new “Island Vibes” menu pairs perfectly with gaming fun with dad from 10 a.m. until midnight. Fleming’s offers a special three-course Father’s Day brunch on Sunday, June 16, which includes entrée selections of their signature eggs Benedict, steak and spring vegetable quiche with filet mignon, barbecue Scottish salmon filet, or a filet and lobster offering. All entrees cost between $48 and $60 and include starter course options, sides to share and dessert offerings. Berry Mimosas and butcher’s Bloody Mary are also available for an extra charge and there’s a special children’s menu. From Friday, June 14 through Sunday, June 16, Fleming’s “GO BIG” menu will satisfy the hungriest of dads with options like the 35 oz. prime tomahawk steak ($90) with an option to add on a “colossal North Atlantic lobster tail ($39). Prices include starter courses and dessert.
