110+ Father’s Day 2024 Free Meals, Freebies & Discounts (6/16)

Sunday, June 16, 2024, is Father’s Day. So, grab your dad (if you’re lucky enough to still have him around!) and head to any of these restaurants that are offering free meals on Father’s Day, freebies and discounts. I admit it. I’m a Daddy’s girl! Yeah, I’m a full-fledged Daddy’s Girl. But, not in a frilly way. My dad taught me to fix stuff and not be afraid to get dirty. He’s smart, talented (did I mention the man can SING!?) He was singing publicly since he was a kid. Actually, he even had several offers from record companies and promoters to be rich and famous. He was always in a band, either Country music or “Country Rock” as we used to call it. Instead of pursuing fame, in his words, he “got married instead.” After all, it’s family first.

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there, and anyone who is deserving of the title.

To Sum it Up

Father’s Day isn’t just about free meals. Sure, they’re great! But, if nothing else, then I hope you take this away with you: cherish your dad. Spend as much time together as possible, and make Father’s day a tribute to the wonderful men in your life. After all, you didn’t get this awesome without a little help! 😉

More to Father’s Day than Free Meals

Father’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. A great dad might spend all their time with their kids, or they might have to spend more time working than they want. It doesn’t require 24/7 time spent with your child to be a good influence. The point is that they make an impact. In my humble opinion, great dads teach their kids what’s important, what’s good, what’s right and how to prioritize those things to be a good person.

What Fathers Day Means to Me

My Dad is a family man in every sense. In his world, family comes first. I can’t even begin to tell you the extent of his generosity toward strangers. And, animals! They love him almost as much as he loves them. There’s one heartbroken giraffe that we left at a theme park in Florida who could not stop chewing on my dad’s beard. (HA!) Seriously, the man is good at everything. He’s not perfect, but he’s sure a good dad. His are some pretty big shoes to fill.

Father In Love

I had the privilege of calling another great man my “father” (in law). And, he happened to be a lot like my dad. It was uncanny how much they had in common. He, too, was in a Country Western band! He played bass guitar, just like my dad. (All the way down to having the same guitar, same year & model – everything!!) He was my father-in-law and he passed away, unexpectedly. We were able to be with him for a very short week before we lost him. He called me his angel. When I had to say goodbye, I told him now he could be my angel. Why am I writing this with tears all the way down to my toes?
