Sort of like when Fonzie from Happy Days would cross over into some episodes of Laverne & Shirley, like the Ewing family crossover from Dallas into Knots Landing, or, for the young 'uns, when Grey's Anatomy kvetches over into Private Practice, Tudor House and The Federal Food, Drink & Provisions are joining forces to throw the penultimate, possibly risqué Father's Day fiesta that may make up for all those years of frilly, flowery brunches and tacky ties.
Dad's day begins at 12:30 at Tudor House, where The Fed's Aniece Meinhold will be serving Bourbon cocktails until 1:30 p.m. "I'm going over there to shake some drinks up, because I love getting people saucy," she tells us, and [Fed chef and co-owner Cesar Zapata Diaz] is putting together some canapes for that first hour. Then [Tudor chef] Jaime DeRosa will be coming to our place to share his signature items and man the grill with Ceez."
But wait! There's more and we're not talking about the live music. At 1:30 p.m. at Tudor House, it's the unveiling of a 60-lb. pig from Palmetto Farm. Cost for the Tudor House portion of the day is $65 plus tax and tip, which includes cocktail hour, unlimited eats, PBR's and more.
The party will then move over to The Fed, where there will be a pop-up Scotch bar and cigar pairing with Sosa Cigars along with "unlimited smoked goods and scantily clad ladies post sunset." Dinner is $55 per person plus tax and tip.
As for the strippers, they're working on yet another cross promo with one of Miami's finer gent's clubs to have their ladies swing by and possibly offer a complementary entrance to the club for an aperitif. Because there's nothing like saying thanks, Dad, with some exotic dancers. Take that, Hallmark. Stay tuned for details on that one. For reservations, call The Fed at 305-758-9559 or Tudor House at 305-534-8455.
