Veterans Day is a red-letter day on a few restaurant calendars.
Mission BBQ will observe Veterans Day on Monday with a "Freedom isn't Free" event. The Glen Burnie restaurant, which has announced the opening of a second location in Perry Hall, will offer a complimentary sandwich "to all those who have honorably served in our Nation’s military and armed forces."
Charm City Cakes, the Baltimore bakery home to Food Network star Duff Goldman, has created an Iwo Jima cake for the event that replicates the iconic Joe Rosenthal photograph of U.S. Marines raising the flag on top of Mount Suribachi, immortalizing the Battle of Iwo Jima during World War II.
The cake-cutting will take place following the singing of the National Anthem at noon.
Outback Steakhouse will honor troops with a free Bloomin' Onion and soda on Sunday and Monday in celebration of Veterans Day.
