Veteran's Day 2016 - The Best Places to Honor our Military

Veteran's Day is one of the most important days of the year in the United States. It is a day to pay honor to all of the Veteran's who have kept our country safe and have provided us with the many freedoms that we have.

Thankfully, many establishments have invited Veteran's to enjoy this day with a free meal and Splash Magazines Worldwide has put together a list of some of the great spots to take the Veteran in your life out recognize all that they have done.

California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the authority in creative dining with a California vibe, thanks and honors members of the U.S. military both past and present this Veterans Day. On Friday, Nov. 11, CPK invites veterans and active military to enjoy a complimentary entrée from a special Veterans Day menu at all participating California Pizza Kitchen restaurants nationwide.*

“This Veterans Day, California Pizza Kitchen honors the bravery and commitment of the men and women serving our country, both past and present, by inviting them to be our guests and enjoy a complimentary meal during this national holiday,” said G.J. Hart, executive chairman and CEO of California Pizza Kitchen. “We are grateful for your service and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your selflessness and dedication to our country. We look forward to serving you.”
