Friday is Veteran’s Day, and at least two local restaurants have special events planned to recognize it.
Applebee’s will for the third consecutive year offer veterans a free meal. On Friday, veterans and active duty military members who show proof of service (a U.S. Uniform Services Identification Card, etc. ) can choose from among a list of entrees, including a 7 oz. sirloin, a bacon cheddar burger and Fiesta lime chicken.The deal is good for dine-in only and includes traditional sides. Read the fine print here.
Also, Abuelo’s Mexican restaurant at 1413 N. Waterfront Parkway is putting on a Queso for Heroes fundraiser to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. The restaurant will donate $1 for every chili con queso appetizer sold during Veteran’s Day weekend – from Friday through Sunday — to the project, which provides support and aid to veterans who’ve been wounded.
UPDATE: A blog reader has kindly(?) pointed to this list of other Veteran’s Day specials restaurants are offering, and Wichita has several of them, including Chili’s, Denny’s and Famous Dave’s.
