Menu for the Week of June 11, 2012 — Happy Fathers Day this Sunday!

Try not to panic as you read the title to this post and realize that you have, yet again, forgotten that Fathers Day happens in mid-June.  It seems like every year we are bombarded with reminders in May about Mothers Day, but what about the dads, people? They deserve more than yet another tie!

With that said, how about coming in this week and buying dad the gift of MEAT!  Sure, he’s going to open it up, and you’re going to immediately tell him to heat up the grill and let you share in the spoils, but it’s the thought that counts, right?  And what brings families together better than food?  Pair a couple steaks, sausages, or salamis with one of our handmade cutting boards or salami boards, pack it up in a reusable TST Tote with a copy of Meatpaper, some Bacon Soap, and Bacon Toothpicks, and you will finally solidify your spot as the favorite child. 

Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention our dads in this post and give them special thanks for all they’ve done to make us and this business what we are today.  Thank you John Kreitner and Tom Perry for the unwavering love, support, and….well…handyman, dog-sitting, picture-hanging, pep-talking, and errand-running skills (we could go on and on…) that you’ve given to us so freely in these past several years.  We love you!

Stay Hungry Atlanta!
