Time to treat dad
It’s not too late to spoil dad for Father’s Day on Sunday – and there’s plenty happening around Perth. The Ritz-Carlton is hosting a special edition of its signature Afternoon Tea on Sunday September 5 at Hearth. Bite into Rose Mallee wagyu sandwiches or a Berkshire crispy pork sando with tonkatsu sauce while tasting Glenmorangie Whisky or a Blasta Brewing tasting panel. There are two sittings available at 12pm and 3pm and bookings are a must..
Scarborough's Skol Bar is hosting a Smoked Meat Feast, with a free Dingo Lager from Dingo Brewing Co for dad. The $78 feast feeds two people, with smoked beef ribs; Maryland chicken; lingonberry glazed pork belly bites; apple slaw; potatoes and more. Email Skol to book and pre-order.
Perth’s barbeque brothers Leon and Cory Tartaglia from Cheat Meats have joined forces with Guy Grossi’s Roman osteria Garum on a Father’s Day lunch. The rustic shared feast will include juicy Bistecca tomahawk steak and pulled pork. Tickets here.
Little Creatures is holding a Father’s Day brewery tour from 11am. The tour takes dad through the brewing process, as well as the history of the waterside brewery. They’ve saved the best for last – the tour ends with a guided tasting of the full range of beers and a take-home 946ml crowler of dad’s favourite brew. Bookings available here.
Elsewhere, Harbourside in Fremantle is hosting Bottomless Beers and Brunch from 10am to 12pm. Expect 90 minutes of Little Creatures Pale Ale, Swan Draught and sparkling. Tickets are $45 per person.

A hamper just for dad
If you and yours are staying in this Sunday, The Heritage has put together a Father’s Day gift hamper with a 600-gram in-house dry-aged, organic grass-fed steak, plus flavoured butter and jus, for you to cook at home. The take home pack also includes a magnum of 2016 Powell & Sons Barossa and Eden Valleys Shiraz, a four-pack of Balter XPA and a 90ml bottle of whiskey. The CBD wine bar is also hosting a two-hour Father’s Day banquet this Saturday. The shared dinner includes king prawns, oysters and wagyu scotch fillet and ends with a tiramisu to share – or you can add three local cheeses for an extra cost. Book here.
A smashing dessert
The QT’s in-house restaurant Santini Grill has created a dessert you can smash … literally. Santini Spacca is designed to be destroyed. The delicate dessert is a combination of fruit, pickled cherries, sorbet, chocolate mousse and a dark chocolate shell that can be broken with a spoon. It’s served on chocolate crumb with a golf leaf garnish and available at lunch and dinner until the end of September. Bookings are recommended..
Murray Street’s Prince Lane Bar is serving a rooftop brunch on Saturday September 4. There are four different breakfast dishes to try and your choice of a bottomless beverage package. Choose between bottomless Prosecco, gin and tonics, non-alcoholic mocktails and sparkling wine. The brunch board includes a smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel; pumpkin and feta frittata; yoghurt and berry parfait; and a waffle with maple syrup. Tickets available here.
