We Promise Not to Be Boring on Father’s Day!

We all know Dad has enough ties and socks to last him for-ev-er. That’s why this Father’s Day you should consider doing something that’s not boring. Treat him to a #NotBoringNation Gift Card! Trust us, he’ll appreciate a gift of food.

As a thank you to you, we’re offering bonus certificates when you purchase Gift Cards. You’ll receive a $10 Bonus Certificate when you buy $50 in Gift Cards and $25 when you purchase $100! This special gift card celebration runs through 6/18/17.

While you’re at it, why not invite your Dad or that special someone who may be “like a Dad” to Ling & Louie’s for a “tropical getaway?” We’ll be serving up a special Father’s Day Luau that runs from Thursday, 6/15/17 – Sunday, 6/18/17, featuring Hawaiian-inspired cuisine such as our Desert Island Poke, Luau-Style Pork, Louie’s Loco Moco, and Hawaiian Sweet & Sour Pork!

In addition, we’ve partnered with Kona Brewing Co. to usher in that true island feel, featuring great Hawaiian craft beers like Fire Rock Pale Ale (Louie’s Pale Ale), Longboard Lager, and a limited edition Pineapple IPA!

To show our appreciation to all dads, we’re also giving them a $10 bounce back for the next visit.

Father’s Day was first celebrated in the early 1900’s. President Calvin Coolidge recommended Father’s Day become a national holiday in 1924 but nothing became of it. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed an executive order making the third Sunday in June as the official day for Father’s Day. It finally became recognized as a national holiday in 1972 under the Nixon administration.

Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to show your dad how much you care about him in a way that’s not boring!

Spring Training in Scottsdale

Spring Training is upon us in the desert and devoted fans from all over the country head to the Valley of the Sun. Since 1947, baseball teams have been coming to various parts of Arizona, including Scottsdale and Mesa, for Spring training. Visitors experience the beauty of the dessert and warmer weather while hoping to catch their favorite players during breaks and warm-ups for an autograph or even a selfie.  Scottsdale alone is home to three Major League Baseball teams:  San Francisco Giants, Colorado Rockies and Arizona’s own – the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Downtown Scottsdale, is a hot spot for tourists, especially during Spring Training. The San Francisco Giants, 2015 World Series Champions, play ball at the Scottsdale Stadium within walking distance of Scottsdale Road and Main Street.  While hanging out in Downtown Scottsdale, otherwise known as “Oldtown”, fans can experience a lot of what Arizona has to offer including art galleries, a beautiful waterfront stroll, nightlife, specialty stores and boutiques.

Arizona fans don’t have to go far from Phoenix to catch the team – The Arizona Diamondbacks can be found at their Spring Training home at Salt River Fields. Something unique about this stadium is that it also houses the Colorado Rockies.

Ling & Louie’s is also approximately 20 minutes from Sloan Park, in Mesa. Sloan Park is home the home of the 2016 World Champion Cubs and Cubs fans have been waiting years to be able to say that! (Parent tip – there is an awesome playground like no other for kids nearby that they will love and can burn off some energy before the game).

Knowing that Louie is a huge baseball that just never quite made it to the big leagues – he did make it to the big leagues of American Comfort food with these not boring dishes.   We’ve chosen some great “American Comfort” food picks we think you’ll enjoy before or after the game (with an ice cold beer, of course)!

Loaded Sliders. You’ll feel as if you’ve stolen 2nd and 3rd base with this choice. Three sliders are filled with tender sliced beef, bleu cheese and onions in a garlic-ginger soy sauce, topped with bacon, lettuce and tomato, served with garlic-parmesan fries. Pair it up with a San Tan Brewing Hefeweizen!

Firecracker Chicken Tacos Ready for a little spice? Three tacos with wok’d chicken, bleu cheese, chili sauce, cabbage and Asian salsa. It’s always fun to watch the fireworks with a beer, why not try our Firecracker Chicken tacos with a cold Louie’s Pale Ale, aka Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale?

Next up to bat is the Big Burger in Little China. This take on a burger is intense. Starting with a marinated Wagyu beef patty topped with candied bacon, cucumber salad, Chinese BBQ sauce and spicy aioli, served with garlic-parmesan fries.   Pair this up with a Ling’s Lager (Session Lager, Oregon) and you’ll have felt like you’ve hit a homerun!  Louie would approve.
