Father’s Day Festivities


Just a month ago, we were giving you tips for celebrating Mom, but June means it’s Dad’s turn for some recognition. From live music to special golf rates, as well as brunch buffets and steak specials, there’s a way to celebrate any and all of the Dads you know this Sunday.

Teton Pines

While the Teton Pines Mother’s Day Buffet is not to be rivaled, their Father’s Day Country Buffet spread is a close contender. From 10 a.m.-1 p.m., treat Dad to all his favorites. Think prime rib, bacon and sausage alongside huevos rancheros, eggs Benedict, escalloped potatoes and summer vegetable sautee. Sweeten things up with Belgian waffles, assorted pastries and house-made donuts. Cost is $45 for adults and $22 for kids ages 6-12. Tax and gratuity is not included. For a reservation, call 307-733-1005×1. Also inquire about their special golf rates.
