When Veterans Can Get Their Free Meal at BJ's
Veterans Day this year is on Saturday, November 11, which is when BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse is giving away free meals in honor of service members. However, unlike last year, BJ's is giving out free Veterans Day food the day before Veterans Day too, on Friday, November 10, which is the observed Veterans Day this year.
I highly suggest that you get a hold of your local BJ's before visiting them this Veterans Day weekend. That way you can be sure that they are one of the BJ's locations that are participating in this Veterans Day offer.
