Veterans Day deals

Let's take a break from my "the holidays-are-coming-and-I'm-not-ready freakout" (thanks for your patience with that, by the way) to discuss Veterans Day deals.

My Savvy Saver column today highlights two restaurants - Applebee's and Golden Corral - that will be serving free meals to veterans in honor of Veterans Day. One is happening Wednesday, and the other is Monday, so you might want to check out the link to get details before you head out.

Since writing that column, I've learned that active and retired military will get in free to the exhibit halls on Wednesday (Nov. 11) at the Putnam Museum in Davenport, as a way to thank them for their service.

And Hy-Vee stores will offer free buffet breakfasts to veterans from 7-11 a.m. Wednesday, too.

Do you know of any other local specials at restaurants or businesses to thank our veterans? If so, please let us know here.
