100 Masculine Munchies for Dad

Showing Love for Father’s Day Through Fine Dining

— June 15, 2012 — Lifestyle
Nothing says “I love you father but I respect your need to uphold your manliness” like these masculine munchies for dad. Father’s Day is coming up and if anything, it should be the one time of year when dads all around can put their diet aside and indulge in some heart attack-inducing grub. The 1050 Bacon Burger is a perfect way to ensure that after Father’s Day your dad will stick to a strict vegetables-only diet out of fear of another clogged artery.

If money isn’t an issue, then perhaps you could treat your dad to the Pizza Royale 007, a $3,700 flat bread that promises deliciousness as well as bankruptcy. Of course, if health consciousness and frugality are two factors determining what’s on the menu for father’s day, then why not cook up a delicious shaved asparagus pizza? Nothing says “I love you and want you to be alive and well for many more years to come” like a salad on top of bread.
