Veteran’s Day is coming up, and here are some places around Tampa Bay hosting specials for vets and active military. You can make it a night out; take some friends (or a special someone if you want to make it a date night) to go hatchet-throwing or play some shuffleboard, then take ‘em to dinner and even stop by Smokey Bones for dessert.

Whatever floats your boat, here are the options. Load up your schedule and cash in on all of the establishments wanting to say “thank you for your service” with free bites and activities. Be sure to check valid dates, some are only applicable for Monday, November 11 and others are running all damn weekend.
