Feliz Dia do Pai Para Todos os Pais

Father’s Day in Portugal is celebrated in March, but in Canada, it’s on June 21st this year. Because of the pandemic, none of the local Portuguese associations or groups has planned any special lunches or dinners like previous years. If you want to treat your dad to a Portuguese meal, then you’re in luck. The Portuguese Club of Vancouver is re-opening June 3rd for eat-in and take-out or consider taking your dad for a bica at one of the local Portuguese cafés. You can find a list of them on my Community Contacts page under “BAKERIES, CAFÉS, RESTAURANTS & MORE.”

Lastly, I’d like to say…O pai, obrigada pelas aventuras, pelas tuas sabias e por todo o carinho.  Feliz dia do pai para todos os pais. / Dad, thank you for the adventures, for your wisdom and for all the affection. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads. ❤️??
