Celebrate Dad this Father’s Day with Dovetail Brewery
Dads wear many hats; they are fishing instructors, spider exterminators,
grill masters and embarrassing boyfriend evaluators. They check
underneath beds for monsters, say yes when mom says no, help build IKEA
furniture and give embarrassing girlfriend advice. This Father’s Day
give back to the man who gives you everything with Dovetail Brewery
(1800 W. Belle Plaine, Chicago, IL; 773-683-1414).
Studies show dad gets the short stick
compared to mom when it comes to Father’s Day, most likely because dads
are notoriously hard to shop for or because they just want a day to
relax. Luckily, Dovetail has the solution to both of those problems.
For those searching for the perfect gift to give, the brewery’s
merchandise is a slam dunk. From glasses to apparel to growlers full of
Dad’s favorite brew, there is something for every Dovetail-loving dad.
Even if he is hard to please and prone to returning gifts, Dovetail has
the solution—gift certificates that give him what he actually wants,
delicious craft beer. All Dovetail merchandise is for sale in the
For the dads who truly, no really, do not want any gifts, give him the
gift of the present and spend the day with him and the rest of the
family at one of Chicago’s newest and most exciting craft breweries.
Dovetail’s taproom is famously family friendly, so bring the under age
and furry four-legged family members. Enjoy delicious craft beer and
snacks that will satisfy all. The recently expanded menu includes cheese
flights and a Brewer’s Dinner in addition to pretzels, Landjager (sold
in pairs), Kabanos (sold in pairs), pickled eggs and Lucila’s Homemade
Alfajores for those with a sweet tooth. Of course, do not forget about
Dovetail’s brews. In addition to the
Lager, Pilsner, Hopfenlager, Rauchbier and Hefeweizen, Dovetail’s
seasonal specialty is the Maibock, brewed specifically to celebrate
their one year anniversary last month. Supply is limited so make sure to
try a glass before it is gone.
Additionally, Mike's Revenge Food Truck will stop by the taproom.
Serving mouthwatering and extra meaty sandwiches, Mike’s uses fresh cuts
seasoned to perfection, layered to infinity and guaranteed to please.
Their menu includes classics, like the Pastrami or Rueben, and bigger
game like the Porchetta, which features roast pork, grilled onions,
giardiniera and fresh aioli on an olive-oil painted baguette, as well as
seasonal sides. View the full menu here.

Treat Dad to a Delicious Father’s Day Dinner All Day at Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille in Oak Brook
Opening at 11 a.m. on Father’s Day
Celebrate your favorite grill master this Father’s Day, Sunday, June 18,
2017 by giving him a break from the grill and treating him to a
perfectly Rare and Well Done dinner, served all day at
Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille (5 Oakbrook Court, Oak Brook, IL 60523;
630-571-1808). In honor of dads, Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille will
open early, at 11 a.m. on June 18, serving its dinner menu
throughout the day and evening. In addition, Perry’s will be
offering a special prix fixe three-course meal from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. for
$29.95 a person.
The special Father’s Day menu consists of a three-course menu: choice of
salad, Perry’s Famous Pork Chop and the Dessert Trio, making it the
perfect meal for spoiling Dad.
To start, choose between Perry’s fantastic salads. Savory or sweet and
packed with flavor, these salads are sure to please even the most
carnivorous dads. Salads include the Wedge Salad, Spinach & Warm
Bacon Vinaigrette Salad, Caesar Salad, Butcher’s Chop Salad with Perry’s
famous homemade Italian dressing, Kale Salad with Jalapeño Mint
Vinaigrette or the Field Green, Pear & Candied Pecan Salad.
Move onto the main course and star of the meal, Perry’s Famous Pork
Chop. A mouth-watering prime pork chop measuring seven fingers high as
an ode to the measuring system used by butchers back in the day, the
pork chop is sourced from Midwestern farms and butchered in house from
the pork loin. Once cut, it’s rubbed with proprietary seasoning, cured
and roasted on a rotisserie with pecan wood for up to six hours until it
is sweet, smoky and sizzling. Upon order, the chop is glazed,
caramelized, topped with Perry’s signature herb-garlic butter and carved
tableside. The pork chop is plated as three portions: the “eyelash”
(the most marbled, tender,
melt-in-your-mouth section above the eye of the chop), three baby-back
ribs and the center-cut loin for the ultimate comforting indulgence.
Finish on a sweet note with Perry’s Dessert Trio featuring three of
Perry’s finest sweets: Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée topped with a fresh
raspberry, Praline Cheesecake and Perry’s Chocolate Crunch, crunchy milk
chocolate covered with a dark chocolate ganache, served with homemade
whipped cream, toffee and peanut brittle.
