Nothing says Happy Father’s Day like grilled beef. If you’re not grilling at home and testing out some fancy new barbecue gear that you bought for the Old Man, consider taking him out. Carolyn Wyman, who literally wrote the book on cheesesteaks - she’s the author of The Great Philly Cheesesteak Book - is teaming up with Taste of Philly Food Tours for a cheesesteak tour of Reading Terminal Market. The tour, which starts at 10 a.m. on Sunday and costs $15.95, will cover the market’s vendors who serve Philadelphia’s signature sandwich, and the history behind it with a multitude of greasy, cheesy facts and anecdotes. Visit the Taste of Philly Food Tours website for reservations.
• If cheesesteaks aren’t your Dad’s thing, consider a giant ribeye instead. Bistro St. Tropez is offering fathers a free 14 ounce grilled steak, served with sautéed green beans, mushrooms, pommes puree and bordelaise sauce on Sunday.
• Verdad in Bryn Mawr is offering fathers a chance to win two Phillies tickets or a $125 worth of car washes. The drawing takes place during dinner service on Sunday. Call for reservations.
• Valanni is also offering a steak special for father’s Day. It’s a 16 oz. bone-in cowboy steak that they’re grilling up and serving with baked potato, and asparagus with hollandaise sauce. If your Dad’s a Scotch sipper, Valanni is offering the steak dinner with Johnny Walker Gold for $30, and Johnny Walker Blue for $35.
