Select Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar restaurants (164 participating restaurants nationwide) are testing a promotion that invites all active duty and veterans to pull up a chair for a delicious meal and heartfelt thanks this Veterans Day. With gratitude for their service and sacrifice, active duty and veterans will eat free at participating locations on Veterans Day (November 11, 2008) during regular business hours. Veterans and active duty with proof of United States military service will be able to go to one of the participating Applebee's and select one complimentary entrée from a selection of delicious favorites: a savory House Sirloin, hearty Riblet Basket, zesty Fiesta Lime Chicken®, a juicy Quesadilla Burger or fresh Oriental Chicken Salad. All the traditional sides are included. "It's an honor to host an event that helps the neighborhood come together and say thanks to our veterans and active servicemen and women. We are starting on a small scale to ensure we can best understand how to staff and service these important guests." said Mike Archer, President, Applebee's Services, Inc.. Proof of military service includes: • U.S. Uniform Services Identification Card • U.S. Uniform Services Retired Identification Card • DD214 • LES • Citation or Commendation • Photograph in uniform hsugh: yeah, that's me in full camo paint) • Veterans Organization Card Those locations near big military installations may not participate, cause every nigga and their baby mama will be there, but it's worth a try. I know that Golden Corral normally does this every year and it's usually packed by hungry mofos.
