So last night we had our monthly DadBeers meet up. Once a month, dads meet up after the kids go to bed and have a nice quiet evening out together of watching sports, drinking beers, and eating apps.
Last night we had fifteen dads, and were very well taken care of by Cory and the wonderful staff of Tony Roma’s Masonville . After a few $5.50 pints and discounted apps, we left feeling that much closer as a unified front of well-intentioned father figures.
Thanks to James, Frank, Matt, Bruno, Rob, Derek, Rich, Don, Justin, Ryan, Peter, Gabriele, Brett, and Tyler for coming out!
Our next event will be at Palasad at the end of May, and should be showing up on our event calendar and private Facebook group in the coming week.
