As we inch closer to Father’s Day, we’re leaving with you one final gift idea straight from a real dad. And trust us, this one won’t disappoint!

Fred Fabricant–our marketing director, Julie Fabricant’s dad–is an IP attorney who maintains a corporate/casual style Monday through Friday. He loves sports, vinyl and being a Cards Against Humanity champ–all while sipping on a glass of single-malt scotch. His perfect evening includes cooking on the grill with his girls–he has three daughters!–and jamming to David Bowie. Here’s what he’s hoping for this Father’s Day.

SHEfinds: What’s your fondest Father’s Day memory?

Fred Fabricant: Brunch at home on Father’s Day with the griddle fired up. The menu? Bacon sizzling, pancakes bubbling and multiple Bloody Marys (extremely spicy, lots of horseradish and with a pickle, obviously).

SF: What are your plans for this Father’s Day?

FF: Rather than brunch, we’ll probably fire up the grill Sunday evening and weather permitting, have the family over on the back deck, followed by music and drinks around the fire pit. As for the menu, probably marinated skirt steaks, spicy brats, and a few burgers.

SF: Anything special on you wishlist for this Father’s Day?

FF: I could use a new outdoor grill. I plan on gifting the one I have to my son-in-law for their backyard because it’s time for him to start BBQing for his family.

SF: Are there any traditions that your father passed on to you that you passed on to your children?

FF: Spending Father’s Day together with the family around a good meal. I think many of the traditions I have passed on to my daughters are inspired by my father. He was a butcher and owned a supermarket–in addition to being a radio singer in the 1930s!–so our love of food and music comes from him. Another tradition is the Sunday night call. Call your parents on Sunday night!

Now, you can probably guess the ultimate, no-fail Father’s Day gift is this Kenmore 4-burner gas grill with folding side tables from Sears. Really–what dad wouldn’t love this bad boy?!
