Time to purchase tickets to give your pop the time of his life this Father’s Day.
The Red Oak Victory, a ship built on the Richmond Homefront during WWII—and boasting stunning bay views—is hosting a “Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast” Sun., June 18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and your family is invited.
The Father’s Day breakfast will consist of “freshly made pancakes, sausage, bacon and scrambled eggs” along with “apple slices, coffee and orange juice,” per the ship’s all-volunteer crew. Mimosas are also available for the adult set for an extra fee. The price is a steal—breakfast is $15 for adults and $5 for children age 8 and under and the meal service runs throughout the event.
“Dad will love breakfast on a genuine World War II ship on a beautiful June day [moored] on the San Francisco Bay. Then you and pop can tour the Red Oak Victory and work off some of those extra calories,” said crew organizers.
Along with the pancake breakfast, visitors will be treated to the live 40s, 50s and 60s music of The Lovin’ Harmony Trio. Free Radiograms can be sent to your friends and family from the ship’s 1944 radio room, while tours are available until 4 p.m. for anyone staying onboard past their meal time.
The Red Oak Victory is located at 1337 Canal Blvd. in Richmond. To purchase tickets to the ship’s Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast, click here.
