- Grilling hamburgers and hotdogs (whilst drinking beer) - Bringing your own grill (though this is subject to change. We will provide all of the meat) - Refer to all attendees as 'Big Guy,' 'Chief,' 'Sport,' 'Champ' etc. (whilst drinking beer) - Talk about dad things, like lawnmowers, building your own deck, Jimmy Buffet, etc. Funny anecdotes are highly encouraged. All whilst drinking beer."
The attendee (who posts on Imgur as TheDoctorFeelgood) said, "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!"
Next, TheDoctorFeelgood wrote, "Lets meet the Dads!" Yes, that indicates that there was more than one. "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."
This is another dad, named Scott. However, it appears that they guys nicknamed him "Weed Dad." "Scott works at a dispensary and was hooking everybody up with infused goodies (we're in Washington, it's legal yo). Scott was also dishing out veggie burgers and A+ fatherly advice the whole time," TheDoctorFeelgood said.
However, there was more to Scott's story than just providing weed. "Scott recently lost his own dad," TheDoctorFeelgood said. "Everything on the table are pictures of him and his dad or other mementos of his father."
Another dad in attendance was Pete, who they called "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."
There was a lot of Rainier beer in the photos, but TheDoctorFeelgood didn't want anyone to get the wrong idea. "Just so we're clear, this wasn't intentionally a Rainier ad. They donated 500 tall boys, which I am super grateful for, but neither myself nor anybody else at the event was paid to advertise for Rainier or any of the other companies that sponsored the event. Thanks for all the love!"
And what barbecue would be complete without having their own T-shirts? The answer, of course, is most of them. But in this case, they have one anyway. "Badass design, shoutout to Chester Copperpot clothing in Seattle!" he said.
TheDoctorFeelgood closed out the post with a shout out to dads everywhere. "Show your dad some love today, go give him a hug or something. If you don't have a dad go hug someone else's dad. Or hug your mom. Just go hug somebody, I don't care. You guys are awesome!"
