Father's Day Burgers & Beers

My parents came down from Jonesboro today for a Father's Day outing at Crosstown Concourse — the awesome building where I work and spend most of my free time. My dad had seen me post about the Impossible Burger at Farm Burger in Crosstown Concourse, and he said he wanted to try it. So we had vegan burgers!

My dad and mom both loved the Impossible! My mom even said it was better than a meat burger.

Here's an inside shot of my Impossible Burger. I ordered it medium rare this time, and it had just the right amount of pink inside. I LOVE this burger so much. For my toppings, I went with housemade pickles, red onion, tomato, lettuce, grainy mustard, and pickled jalapenos.

After lunch, we walked down to the far west side of Concourse for beers at Crosstown Brewing Co. My parents had yet to check out our local brewery, so this was fun!

I got the Alt School altbier, and they got Siren Blonde Ale. Paul went with the high-grav Russian Imperial Stout.

I love my dad so much! He's the coolest guy I know — super generous, silly, and badass all at the same time. Definitely won the dad lottery in life and I'm super grateful.
