Gather celebrates start of summer all month long

The weather is heating up and so is the action at Cape Coral’s newest premier waterfront dining spot. Specials and events throughout June make this the perfect time to eat, drink and chill at Gather.

Order any breakfast item between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. all month long and the second breakfast item is free. Plus, a soup-and-sandwich lunch is only $10 Tuesdays through Fridays. These enticing combos are exquisitely paired and available from 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m. at the restaurant on 5971 Silver King Blvd.:

Tuesdays: Lobster bisque and lobster cake sandwich

Wednesdays: Tomato basil and grilled cheese

Thursdays: Clam chowder and croissant BLT

Fridays: Chili and chicken wrap

Gather’s can’t-miss house party is Saturday, June 23, featuring an all-you-can-drink special on select beers served in a SOLO cup for $10, and only $5 for anyone with a college ID. DJ Malik will be on hand, and there will be plenty of table games to keep the fun going.

All day Sunday, June 17, dads get a succulent 10-ounce New York strip served with mashed potatoes and a red wine demi-glace for just $18 in honor of Father’s Day. Bring dad back with the whole family on Sunday, June 24 for a reservations-only buffet brunch from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., with Cape Coral’s best mimosas and DJ German Garcia spinning the hits. Call 239-673-9939 to save a spot and to book reservations for “wineday” Wednesday on June 20, when six wines and assorted cheeses will be available for just $25 from 5-6:30 p.m.

Guests can bring their favorite classic songs on a CD or in MP3 format Friday, June 8, when Garcia will play the classics by request all night long. And Garcia will be back along with percussionist Ryan Anthony and saxophonist Patrick Montanari on Friday, June 29. Details on the time plus the food and drink specials that night will be on gathercape.com and facebook.com/gathercape, along with the lowdown on three dollar Street Taco Thursdays, and the bands playing live music every Saturday from 8-11 p.m.
