Steak: It’s Got Father’s Day Written All Over It

I like to give my dad something manly every year for Father’s Day:  gorgeous, satisfying steak. (Clarification:  I don’t feel manly when I eat MY steak, but the kind my dad likes, well, is pretty manly.)

Nothing makes his eyes light up more than when he discovers he will soon be one with a steak. So why wouldn’t I want to give that to him on a day to honor Dad?

I’m going to cook mine a lovely, thick, Kansas City strip steak. It’s his fave.

But you could check out these Father’s Day gift options and give your Pops a gift-boxed steak combo, some USDA Prime beef or even a gift card to let him choose what strikes his fancy.

Either way, your dad will know you love him. ‘Cause where I come from, nothing says love like a great steak.

Happy gifting, everybody!

Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale?

Your dad likes bacon, right?

Father’s Day is coming up so why not treat him to some tasty Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale?

You like him, you say? And you want to keep him around?

Okay, maybe not then.

But help me understand the thought process here. Breakfast in a bottle?

Did someone say, “If only I could bottle this taste” and then a lightbulb went off?

I’m not sure I’ll ever understand bacon in liquid form. But maybe that’s just me.

What do you think about this ale? Would YOUR dad drink it even if he really loves bacon?
