‘Father’s Eve’ created in St. Paul garage is now a nationwide dad’s night out
“A casual get-together in 2012 has exploded into dozens of events around the country for dads to bond together.
Father’s Day is officially Sunday, but “Father’s Eve” happens the night before — a night out for dads to celebrate with each other.
So says Father’s Eve founder, John Francis, who accidentally created the event in his St. Paul garage in 2012. At the time, he thought he’d just throw a low-key party to christen his newly built addition with some buddies, cigars and beer.”
