My dad has had a pretty full life. So “gifts” are pretty pointless as he pretty much has all the things he wants at 74 years of age. So this year, I went with something “experiential” for his Father’s Day gift. This year we made a memory I won’t ever forget. My dad and I hosted a special “Father’s Day Trivia” at one of my favorite venues… Eight & Sand Brewing Company. My Trivial Things with Tony Romeo people call my dad “Tony Romeo Original Recipe” and he’s a fan favorite. Especially at Eight. A great time was had by all. My heart goes out to those of you that don’t have their moms and dads on these holidays, so I truly, truly try and appreciate mine.
To make the day more sweet, the event was very well attended! We had about 24 teams, many drinking with their dads. We will 100% make this an annual at Eight & Sand which is also a great place for fathers and sons. The Mazzone’s, owners, remind me of me and my dad and of course Burke has a son that is the spitting image of his brewer dad as well. I was also joined by some of “Romeo Home Team” that included my brother-in-law and niece and nephew. They always support my dad, their Pop Pop.
My Dad, Tony Rome original recipe has always been a fan favorite with my friends from the time I was a kid. Coaching, driving, getting friends out of jail haha… (kidding-ish). He’s always been the dad people liked. The Trivial Things with Tony Romeo Trivia People– are like awesome grown up versions of the people I knew as kids. They drink legally now though… Here are some photos from the day. If you have some, send them my way and I will add to the gallery!
Again, if you are lucky enough to have your folks, please enjoy them. Tomorrow is never promised.
