The grandfather who won hearts and Internet fame after cooking 12 burgers for six grandchildren only to have just one show up is planning a cookout and everyone is invited.

Kelsey Harmon tweeted a photo of her grandfather, “Papaw,” sadly eating a burger Wednesday. It was shared thousands of times and gained so much traction it made it to Twitter's "moments" page, which tracks trending tweets and compiles them into a feed.

Well, the grandchildren made it over for some burgers and now Papaw is inviting everyone to join them.

A cookout is planned for Saturday at a flea market the family owns in Purcell, Oklahoma, according to Buzzfeed. Burgers are $2 and “I had a burger with Papaw” T-shirts will be available for $25.

“It was Papaw’s idea to have the cookout,” Kelsey told Buzzfeed. “He loves all of this. He never ever thought he would be a celebrity.”
