Bombshells Restaurant & Bar, a subsidiary of RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc., announced activities to honor veterans and missing service members on the Veterans Day federal holiday this year on Monday, November 12.
“Part of what Bombshells is all about is celebrating the service of those who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe,” says David Simmons, Director of Restaurant Operations.
The fast growing, six-unit chain (four in Houston and one each in Dallas and Austin) will provide free meals and soft drinks for veterans of any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces and 20 percent discount on meals and soft drinks for accompanying family members, on November 12. All Bombshells are open 11AM to 2AM for lunch, happy hour, dinner and late night. Veterans and active service members always receive 20 percent discount on meals and soft drinks every day at Bombshells.
Veterans and active service members are asked to present military ID, such as U.S. Uniformed Services or Retired ID Card, Current Leave and Earnings Statement, veterans’ organization card (e.g., American Legion or VFW), or military discharge (DD214). There are no rain checks or gift cards for another day, and the offer is not eligible for take-out.
Bombshells will also set a “Missing Man Table” in each location. The table, which grew out of concern for Vietnam War POW/MIAs, is a place of honor set up in U.S. armed forces dining facilities in memory of fallen, missing, or imprisoned military. In addition, veterans are encouraged to bring a photo (ideally 8×10) in uniform, which Bombshells plans to frame and permanently hang on a “Wall of Honor” in each restaurant.
