Richmond’s favorite WWII ship’s crew is readying to flip some flapjacks during its “Father’s Day on the Red Oak Victory Ship Pancake Breakfast” Sun., June 19.

Breakfast will be served from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will include freshly made pancakes, sausage, bacon and scrambled eggs as well as apple slices, coffee and orange juice; mimosas will be available for an additional fee. The ship will remain open for guests to enjoy tours and panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay until 4 p.m.

Live music performed by The Sites Show—often described as “a fun blend of North and South American Rock ‘n Roll,” will entertain diners during the event, per ship officials. Visitors will also have the opportunity to send free Radiograms via Morse code to recipients around the world via the ship’s original 1944 radio room.

The Red Oak Victory is a restored World War II Victory ship and floating museum berthed on the Richmond waterfront at 337 Canal Blvd., Berth 5, in Richmond.

Tickets to the breakfast are $15 for adults and $5 for children age 8 and under, with additional options available for tours. Click here for tickets to the breakfast and here more info about the ship. Questions? Contact [email protected].
