Skeet and Breezy are two men who have never met, but would like each other if they ever do. They have a great deal in common, besides being in-laws.
Both are in their 80s and are still feisty after surviving major surgeries. Both have been married for more than 50 years. Both fathered five children. Both served in the military during wars. Breezy was an Army/Air Force gunner in a B17 during World War II and Skeet, who was in the Air Force, did a tour of duty in Vietnam. Both were long-term career men who put in more than 20 years on their jobs.
Both politically liberal. Both active in their communities and in their churches. Neither has been able to shake their nicknames. They are both men of integrity, both leaders, both the most excellent fathers a son or daughter could have.
We tried to think of something special to offer on Father’s Day this year at Frank’s Kitchen. We decided to bring the Kobe beef burger back to the menu for a week. On Sunday, customers can buy dad a Kobe burger and we’ll give his father a free drink and fries.
Kobe refers to cuts of beef from the black Tajima-ushi breed of Wagyu cattle, raised according to a strict tradition in Japan. The meat is generally considered to be a delicacy, renowned for its flavor, tenderness, and fatty, well-marbled texture. To meet demand for Kobe in the United States, ranchers have crossbred Angus cattle with domestically-raised Wagyu. At Frank’s, our American-style Kobe beef comes from Snake River Farms in Boise, Idaho.
It’s our first holiday promotion since we opened and one that means a lot to us. Here’s to our dads and dads just like them. Happy Father’s Day.
