Bombshells Restaurant & Bar to Honor Veterans & Missing Service Members on Veterans Day 2017
HOUSTON—November 8, 2017--Bombshells Restaurant & Bar has expanded its Veterans Day activities this Saturday to honor both veterans and missing service members.
The fast growing, five-unit chain (three in Houston and one each in Dallas and Austin) are subsidiaries of RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RICK).
"As part of Bombshells recognition of veterans, as well as active and missing service members, Veterans Day is an opportunity for us to give back to those who have given us so much," said David Simmons, Director of Restaurant Operations.
Free & Discounted Meals
- Free meals for veterans of any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces
- 20% discount on meals for their families
- 20% discount on meals for active service members
- Available Saturday, November 11, 2017, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 AM
- Note: Veterans and active service members receive 20% discount on meals 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.
Missing Man Table
Bombshells will 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,” Mr. Simmons explained.
Veteran Photo Collection
Veterans are encouraged to bring a photo (ideally 8x10) in uniform which Bombshells plans to frame and permanently hang on a “Wall of Honor” in each restaurant. “Some restaurants post photos of movie stars who ate there,” Mr. Simmons said. “Our vision is for Bombshells to feature photos of local veterans that friends, family, and community can recognize and appreciate every day.”
Bombshells Restaurant & Bar is the first military-themed chain in the sports bar/casual dining segment. It comes alive through its hangar-like design, attractive Bombshells Girls with military inspired uniforms, full bar, scratch kitchen, big flat screen TVs, DJs, huge patio, energetic atmosphere and “social dining experience.” Attracting singles, couples, and families, Bombshells does a strong lunch, dinner and late night business. RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RICK) has seven company-owned Bombshells open or under development.
