The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation will host a special brunch for Father’s Day at the National Museum of the Marine Corps on Sunday, June 16, starting at 10 a.m., according to a news release. The Museum is located just outside Marine Corps Base Quantico at 18900 Jefferson Davis Highway, Triangle.

The brunch will be held at the Museum’s Tun Tavern, a restaurant modeled after the former brewery in Philadelphia of the same name. The original Tun Tavern is regarded as the birthplace of the Marine Corps as it was where the Marine Corps held its first recruitment drive during the American Revolution.

“We wanted to offer families a unique and patriotic way to celebrate their fathers,” said retired Maj. Gen. James Kessler USMC, CEO of the foundation. “The best part about brunch at Tun Tavern is that it comes with the incredible experience of touring this award-winning museum.”
