Father's Day Dining
Take Dad to Terra Cotta on Father's Day for Sunday brunch. Enjoy oven-fresh pastries and build-your-own eggs Benedict, or choose from a list of other entrées, including prime rib. The $20-per-person (excluding tax and gratuity) brunch is an amazing deal, as it also includes a Bloody Mary, mimosa or freshly squeezed orange juice; 3500 E. Sunrise Drive; 577-8100.
All of the eight Metro Restaurants (McMahon's Prime Steakhouse, Old Pueblo Grille on Alvernon Way and in the Foothills Mall, Metro Grill Park Place, Metropolitan Grill, City Grill, The Grill on the Green and Firecracker Bistro) will feature a special-price meal for Dad's big day. Plus, each restaurant will have a contest with a chance to win a round of golf at Canoa Ranch Golf Club plus lunch for four at The Grill on the Green (first prize), or a round of golf for four at Canoa Ranch (second prize).
Every summer, Doug Levy at Feast asks customers for menu requests. If you're craving something from your childhood or a dish that you ate while on vacation, submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org
, and the staff will consider making it. The special-request menu changes weekly. To stay informed, sign up to receive weekly e-mails at www.eatatfeast.com

Thursday Night Fever
Disco is back in the Cascade Lounge at Loews Ventana Resort. Now is the time for you desert dancing queens and kings to put on those platform shoes and funky polyester attire, then dance off Tucson's summer dining specials. The fun begins at 9:30 p.m. at 7000 N. Resort Drive; 299-2020.
Art's BBQ Restaurant and Vel's Catering will be closed from 3 p.m., June 23, through Aug. 21 for their annual summer break. You still have time to get some down-home comfort food at 450 N. Main Ave.; 388-9295.
A few weeks ago, I reported that Monkey Box was going to reopen at a later date, but apparently the owners changed their minds. Also, Bob's Deli on Campbell Avenue closed when the rent tripled.
