Great news for a man who made headlines all over the country this weekend! Papaw won't be eating his burgers alone much longer.

The family announced that Papaw will host a burger cookout on March 26th open to the public.

Not enough Papaw for you? The family will also be selling t-shirts with a photo of Papaw saying "I had a burger with Papaw".
