It’s Father’s Day! We gotta do something for the old man!
As you’re running down your list of possibilities — remember dad’s a pretty straight forward guy. Something groovy, tasty and relatively simple, totally fits the bill. The most important part of the experience is sitting around the table, with his peeps, enjoying laughs and family banter. A gloriously tasty Mushroom Burger is only the side hustle to the part he loves the most. Spending time together. Enjoy! Check out the Kare11 segment with Karl and Belinda.
Cheers Pops. We got you!
