MANILA, Philippines — Joe Josue, Discovery Suites director of marketing communications, has a clever idea on how to spend Father’s Day this June 16. Why not book a room for the family at Discovery Suites for the weekend? “We have two-bedroom and three-bedroom suites that are just right for a whole family or even a small group of friends,” he says. “With our ‘Room For More’ promo, we offer special rates for weekday stays, from Sundays to Thursdays.”

To make it even more special, Discovery Suites partnered with Atlantis Theatrical Productions for their upcoming show Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, which runs from June 14 to July 7, at the Meralco Theater, not far from Discovery Suites in Ortigas.

“All guests checking in from June 1 to June 16 will be entitled to a 20 percent discount on Beautiful tickets for specific show dates,” Josue explains. Two complimentary premium tickets to Beautiful were given to the first 10 guests who booked with the “Room for More” promo. “It went so fast, we needed to release an additional 20 more complimentary tickets for this promo,” Josue shares.

Winner of a Tony, Grammy and Olivier award, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, which first opened in Broadway in 2014, tells the story of the early life and career of four-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Carole King, using her songs, many of which she wrote with ex-husband Gerry Goffin. Among the most popular are Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?, It’s Too Late, You’ve Got a Friend and You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman.

For the Atlantis production, theater stars Kayla Rivera takes on the role of Carole King, while Nick Varricchio plays Gerry Goffin. Bobby Garcia directs.

“You can cap your night at the theater with dinner at 22 Prime,” Josue suggests. Discovery Suites’ award-winning restaurant is widely recognized as “the country’s foremost name in US Prime Angus Steaks.” As a tribute to Carole King’s hit songs, they are offering “You’ve Got A Friend” for-sharing platters as well as a limited-edition cocktail called “A Natural Woman.”

“All Beautiful ticketholders can claim a complimentary ‘A Natural Woman’ cocktail when they dine at 22 Prime from June 14 to July 15, 2019,” Josue noted. Father’s Day happens to fall on the first weekend run of Beautiful.

22 Prime’s “Dads’ Day Bundles” are perfect for sharing among six to eight persons. You can choose from three bundles, all of which come complete with soup, two main courses and a dessert platter. For your mains, you have a choice of Prime’s Tomahawk and Center-cut Salmon or Signature Steak Platter and Turf King Prawns or Herb Garlic Chicken and Grilled Seafood Platter. “They come with three kinds of sauces: peppercorn, béarnaise and classic for the steaks; and piquillo pepper salsa, hollandaise, and truffle sauce for the seafood,” chef Gerwin Bailon explained. On Father’s Day, June 16, Dads get complimentary SRF Wagyu Steak when you order any of 22 Prime’s Dads’ Day Bundles.

“There’s one more treat for dads on Father’s Day. All dads checked in and booked under our Independence Day Sale promo (suites starting at P5,000) get a complimentary bottle of local craft beer courtesy of Engkanto Brewery,” Josue added. “After all, our dads are our real heroes.”
