Salute to Service: Free Meal at The Hangout on Veterans Day

The Hangout | Naples 2Night

The Hangout by Two Guys Honors Veterans, Active-Duty Military, and First Responders with a Day of Gratitude and Giving Back

In a heartwarming gesture of appreciation for those who have dedicated their lives to serving our nation, The Hangout by Two Guys Italian restaurant in North Naples is inviting veterans, active-duty military members, and first responders to enjoy a free meal on Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11th, from 11 am until 10 pm. The co-owner of this family-owned establishment, Peter Falisi, along with his brother Larry, aims to express their gratitude to the brave heroes in their community.

The Hangout by Two Guys is a place where authentic Italian cuisine meets warm hospitality. It's not just a restaurant; it's a home away from home. On Veterans Day, the restaurant will offer a special treat for veterans and active-duty military personnel: a choice of two delectable dishes. Veterans can choose between the signature Original Chicken Parmesan, a succulent chicken breast cooked in a featherlight breading, smothered in mozzarella cheese, and served with the family's secret marinara sauce alongside pasta. For those who prefer a lighter option, there's the Grilled Chicken Breast Salad, perfect for vegans and vegetarians. This salad is made from a mix of fresh greens and is served with or without a grilled chicken breast. To complement these delicious entrees, veterans will also receive one complimentary soda, beer, wine, or cocktail. What's more, there is no purchase required – a heartfelt gesture to show appreciation to those who have selflessly served their country.

To take advantage of this generous offer, veterans and military personnel need only advise the hostess upon arrival or present their military ID. It's a simple way for The Hangout to say "thank you" and express their deep appreciation for the service and sacrifices of these individuals.

But the generosity doesn't stop there. The Hangout is taking their commitment to supporting veterans one step further by donating 50% of their Veterans Day sales to Warrior Homes of Collier, a local non-profit organization dedicated to addressing veteran homelessness and housing issues in Collier County.

Peter Falisi emphasizes the importance of recognizing the service and sacrifice of our veterans, stating, "There are more than 19 million military veterans that have served our nation. Their dedication to protecting our freedoms, often in hostile environments, cannot be overlooked, especially upon returning home. A home-cooked meal is the least we can do to thank them for their service and for keeping our country safe and strong." He adds that our veterans have given more than we could ever ask for, and they deserve the finest treatment from our grateful citizens.

Veterans Day, originally known as Armistice Day, dates back to 1919 when an agreement was signed to cease hostilities during World War I. Today, it honors all those who have served honorably in the military, while Memorial Day pays tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.
