Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

If you're still scratching your head about what to do for Father's Day this year, the Counter is offering a pretty sweet deal where you can get your dad a free burger and give him a compliment at the same time. Win-win.

The Counter, which offers build-your-own burgers and pretty addictive sweet-potato fries, is doing their special at all their U.S. locations (except at airports) for the entire weekend, from June 20 to 21.

The way it works is that when your server comes to your table, all you have to say is: "My Dad is a BFD" (as in "big f---ing deal"). Then your dad will get a free standard 1/3-pound burger as long as someone at the table orders something, too.

There are a few different locations in the Los Angeles area, including downtown L.A., West Hollywood and Century City. Visit the Counter's website here for info on locations.
