A group of college students in Spokane, Washington created an ad on Craigslist to find dads for their Father’s Day weekend BBQ. It went viral and lots of dads arrived to help the guys party even without their own dads near them.
“As the event grew in popularity, the Boys were contacted by companies that wanted to sponsor the event! Johnsonville supplied a cooler full of brats, Chester Copperpot Clothing donated a bunch of custom t-shirts, and right at the last moment, Rainier hooked the Boys up with 500 cold ones!”
Here are some of the dads that showed up.
“This is Jim, AKA Grill Dad. He brought his own badass smoker/grill and fired it up, churning out delicious burgers and brats all night.”
Saturdays are for the Boys
(Apperently "Boys" is a gender neutral term. Girls can be Boys, as long as they are with the Boys and also cracking cold ones)
“This is Scott, AKA Weed Dad. Scott works at a dispensary and was hooking everybody up with infused goodies (we’re in Washington, it’s legal). Scott was also dishing out veggie burgers and A+ fatherly advice the whole time.”
Scott had an all-star move to remember his father.
“Scott recently lost his own dad, everything on the table are pictures of him and his dad or other mementos of his father.”
“This is Pete, AKA Army Dad. In this picture, Pete is singing [us] an Italian drinking song he learned from one of his Army buddies. Pete brought a pony keg of homebrew to share and some wild stories from his glory days.”
Beers were donated for the event when local breweries caught wind of the event.
Ton’s food for all the boys.
“One of the guys brought a goat. Jim grilled it up and everyone got to try some. I’d never had goat before, it’s actually pretty good!”
"I showed up late and there were only mediums left, I'm not even mad. I know the selfie rule, downvote if you must."
The event was a success, and it looks like they’re already looking forward to next year.
