Dad Wants The Steak..
There is nothing more manly for Dadâ€™s big day than a big juicy steak. Many have said Fatherâ€™s Day is enhanced by the aroma, texture, and flavor of prime steak. In the hands of a journeymen steakhouse like Williamsburgâ€™s Fireside Chophouse it becomes beef nirvana. That is why I have some reservations about this cheeky Fatherâ€™s Day gift I have so online. The gift..an A1 scented candle.
Though amusing and eye catching the novelty falls short of the excellence we want to associate with Fatherâ€™s Day. Fatherâ€™s Day is about that genuine great goodness that is our patriarch. While I know many like and use A-1 on their beef, it is not something I would want to enjoy as a refreshing candle smell to invokes manliness.
Steak Seasoning Candles Or The Scent Of Mediocrity
Let us be honest. While A1 is popular with many people, in many cases it is the taste of failure. It is a bottled potion of pre-made bottled flavors to mask beef that kinda fell short. Not in every case, but many. It is like a parachute of flavorings for that dinner that just canâ€™t soar to the heights of great taste.
The Wrong Message To Dad
This is not a message I want to send to Dad. It is almost like you are saying he falls short. As the summer progresses and the lights go out due to the next lightning storm he will reach for a candle. Once he lights the smell of strained tomatoes and common seasonings the smell of falling short will go through the house.
Not on my watch..
Give Dad The Real Thing…At Our Steakhouse
Skip the middleman and bring Dad in for a real steak at Fireside Chophouse of Williamsburg. If he wants A1 sauce, greatâ€¦just no candle.

Fathers Day In Williamsburg: Choosing The Right Steak
I know every Father is different. But as a man, and a father I can tell you what I want for my Father’s day meal, or any meal reallyâ€¦.
One word is all you need to know. Grill it, pan fry it or better yet, take me to the steakhouse. I know that every Dad picks out which steak he wants once he gets the menu but I have always wondered if Dadâ€™s personality shined through in terms of which steak or entrĂ©e he chooses. I mean what if we matched the personalities with the steak. Here are some humor inspired possible Fatherâ€™s Day personality matches:
Prime Rib For The Patient Dad
Prime rib is a classic dish that requires patience. It take hours to cook and you cannot rush it. It also takes a while to eat as it is a large piece of meat. So if you have one of those quiet patient Fathers, this is the perfect match.
Filet Mignon For The Physically Fit Or Athletic Dad
The Filet Mignon is a classic steak. It is also lean. It is not fatty. It is just pure delicious protein. If health is important to Dad, this is the way to go. It also is the perfect portion control size.
NY Strip For The Quality Seeking Dad
The NY Strip is the king of steaks. Named for the cultural capital of the United States it combines the perfect size cut of beet which is perfectly marbled. If Dad is meticulous or a quality seeker, this is the ticket.
The Porterhouse For The Hearty Larger Than Life Dad
Big, delicious, and hearty are just a few of the adjectives to describe the Porterhouse. It is the Big Daddy of the steak world. It essentially is a New York Strip and Filet Mignon in one. So it is not for the shy and retiring parent or a man with a small appetite.
Steak au Poivre For The Adventurous Dad
This steak is a taste adventure. You start with a lean sirloin and then add an ultra rich sauce with peppercorns. It is a taste explosion and not for someone looking for a traditional sirloin.
