"Father's Eve is about spending time with your buddies; Father's Day is about spending time with family."
Happy days are ahead of us. I really do believe that in my mind. Please can you help me with three items?
Thank you, and now on with the show notes.
My guest is the Founder of "Father's Eve," John Francis. He will walk you through how this idea came about (in a garage).
Many of the organizations that John will mention have been on this podcast or have a connection to the podcast:
During my into, I talk about another guest Brett Zachman with BeMen.
John will tell you the 5 rules (don't have any drink in your mouth when you hear rule number one) that Father's eve has, and I was shocked to learn that he has been doing this since 2012. What started with guys hanging in a garage to now has started to get World Wide exposure.
My personal hope is that we can have Father's Eve 2020 in person, but if not, then a virtual party will still be fun to be a part of.
You can learn more about John and how you can have your own event on the website: https://fatherseve.com
