Father’s Day is the one day of the year to celebrate Dad and whether you are in Los Angeles or anywhere else in the country there are many great ways to make Dad feel special on this day. Splash Magazines Worldwide has put together a list of the best ways to celebrate your dad this year.
If your dad loves the combination of great beer and even better food, Golden Road in Anaheim and their chef Henry Tran just released a new weekend brunch menu just in time for Father’s Day. If decadence is what dad is looking for, the raspberry French toast and the churro waffles are a great way to start off the Father’s Day celebration. Both dishes have flavorful accompaniments that set them apart from your typical dish. The French toast comes with espresso whipped cream, coffee infused syrup and raspberry cream cheese frosting and the churro waffles feature agave apple butter. You are also going to find the classic as well as vegan versions of: loco moco and chili relleno. You can also never go wrong with the GRB burger, the fried avocado tacos or the gigantic pub pretzel. This is Golden Road so dad will have plenty of options to choose from and getting him a flight of beers is the best way to let him sample from the vast selection that includes such flavorful beers as: the Iron Wolf black IPA, the new K-38 and the incredible Steel Cut oatmeal stout that is the perfect brunch beer. Golden Road is simply a fun place that any dad would love to visit and keep him in mind the next time the Angels are in town and you can take him to Golden Road for a beer than walk across the street to take in a game together.
