Free Food for Veterans in Bangor-Brewer Area Saturday
Here's an alphabetical, but maybe not a complete, list of Bangor-area restaurants offering free meals and other deals for veterans and active duty service members to salute them for Veterans Day on Saturday
Most are national chain restaurants doing deals coast to coast in many locations. One can appreciate how difficult it is as a local restaurant owner, in such a different business than it was pre pandemic, to offer free food. But they do.
