Free meal for veterans at Hooters


Update: Happy Veterans Day! In addition to the free Hooters meal below, several other restaurants are thanking vets and active-duty military for their service with free or discounted meals. Applebee’s lets vets pick one of seven free meals. California Pizza Kitchen will give them a free pizza. Chili’s has a vets day menu. There’s all-you-can-eat pancakes at Denny’s, 25% off your bill at Famous Dave’s, and a free meal from this menu at Olive Garden. (In fact, there’s so many options that if you have a favorite restaurant, just google it and see what it’s doing for the day.)

There’s a million and one jokes I could make here, but why don’t I just leave that to your active imaginations and get right to the point? Hooters restaurant is giving free meals to veterans and active-duty military personnel on Veterans Day, Monday. As long as you buy a drink and show your military ID or proof of service (yeah, bring in your medals, that would be cool), you can get a free meal up to $10.99 in value. Anything on the menu, including the chicken wings. The Fresno location is here. The company views the free meal as “small but earnest way to say ‘thank you’ for your service.”

While you’re at it, Hooters is encouraging customers to buy an extra copy of the 2014 Hooters calendar. (Yes, it’s exactly what you think a Hooters calendar would look like. Definitely NSFW.) They’re encouraging people to hand write a message on the calendars and they’ll ship them to U.S. military stationed overseas. (Unfortunately it looks like the calendars are only designed to appeal to men serving overseas. No eye candy calendars for the women in our military.)
