FATHER’S DAY DELIGHTS: Make your dad feel like a king this Father’s Day at one these Town of Huntington restaurants. In Huntington Station, Del Frisco’s Grille (160 Walt Whitman Road) will be offering an 18-ounce, 28-day Bone-In Dry-Aged Strip Steak for $52 that pairs great with a hand-crafted Gentleman’s Mule ($11) made with Basil Hayden’s Aged Bourbon. If dad’s into cars and can wait a week, bring him by Blackstone (10 Pinelawn Road) next Thursday, June 22, 6 p.m. for the steakhouse’s annual Exotic Car Show. If you want dinner after the show, make a reservation by calling 631-271-7780, or enjoy drink specials and a DJ all night. If dad prefers boats, perhaps a view of Huntington Harbor is more his thing. If so, Prime (117 New York Ave., Huntington) has you covered with a Sunday Jazz Brunch 11 a.m.-3 p.m., or Calypso Sundays with live reggae from 4 p.m. to sunset. Prime also has a special Father’s Day gift card offer; through June 18 order a gift card online to get a second complimentary gift card with a balance 20-percent of your initial purchase (Promo code: fathers).
COMING SOON: Burger bar Burgerology is eying the former location of S.T.A.G.S. Tap House for its second location. Burgerology, which already has a location in Rockville Centre, is hoping to move into the 308 Main St. come July. S.T.A.G.S. – which closed late last month after debuting in 2016 – wasn’t the first eatery to have troubles in the store. The space was also home to Ideal’s Element, which closed in 2015 a few months after a revamp. Keep up with the Foodies for more info on Burgerology.
BARBECUE, BEER, HOEDOWN: The sixth annual Huntington Hoedown, a fundraiser that’s packed full of barbecue, beer and dancing, is set for Saturday, June 24, 6-9 p.m. at the Huntington Fire Department (1 Leverich Place).
