Free Colony Grill Pizza to Military on Veteran’s Day 2014

4 Nov

Colony Grill has always been a major supporter of the military. If you go to any of their restaurants, you can see photos of servicemen and women on the wall. And, when any member of the military (active or inactive) comes from 11:30 until close at either the Fairfield, Milford, or Stamford spot on Veteran’s Day, they’ll get a free pizza. Please note that this applies to only sit-down orders and make sure to bring verification.

Help veterans just by visiting Saugatuck Craft Butchery in Westport

8 Nov

Saugatuck Craft Butchery is teaming up with American Made Matters and metalshopct.com to give back to those who served our nation in the military in honor of Veteran’s Day.  Simply stop by the cafe part of their shop at 580 Riverside Avenue for lunch on November 12, and they’ll donate a dollar from every lunch item that you order.  The donations will be divided up into four groups:

1) Wounded Warrior Project:  “Your generous donation to WWP helps thousands of Wounded Warriors – and their families – as they return home from the current conflicts.” 

2) Hope for Warriors:  “Enhancing the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.” 

 3) The 296 Project:  “Our primary mission is to encourage art as a healthy outlet for veterans suffering with the painful after effects of war and to be a clearinghouse for resources that can serve our veterans’ therapeutic needs.”

4) Warrior Canine Connection:  “Where Service Members and Veterans with combat stress take on the critical mission of training service dogs for fellow Wounded Warriors.”  

Two Roads Salutes Veterans and Raises Money for CT Fallen Heroes Foundation

3 Nov

Two Roads in Stratford is honoring the men and women who are fighting or who have fought for America on 11/9/13.  Not only will any member of the military receive $2 off any pint of beer, Two Roads will also be donating a portion of sales to charity on that day.  Just buy a pint and the brewery will donate $1 towards the Connecticut Fallen Heroes Foundation.  If you’re anything like us, you could at least donate $10 between two people by just drinking at the bar and checking out the food truck action…most likely Ruff’s Wood Fired Pizza.

While you’re there, you’ll definitely want to check out Two Roads’ newest brew:  Route of all Evil.  It’s a seasonal black ale that has people talking.  It also has people really freaked out…that clown is super creepy.  It’s on tap now and is in liquor stores throughout CT…then again, we think this brew will sell out fast like Roadsmary’s Baby did!

So, you know what you have to do!  Get down to Two Roads on 11/9 and try it out.  You’ll be helping out the CT Fallen Heroes Foundation and you’ll be enjoying a great brew.  You can, of course, try out the other beers that Two Roads and head brewer Phil Markowski have available.  In fact, why not try a pint of each?  If we all went, had a pint of every brew, think of the thousands of dollars everybody could raise.

Dan will have a drink for his dad who served in Vietnam as a Marine and proudly earned two purple hearts.  Thanks dad and all servicemen and servicewomen across the country who keep our nation safe.

Colony Grill of Stamford and Fairfield Offering Free Pizzas to Veterans on 11/12

9 Nov

“Freedom is never free.” -Author Unknown

If you’ve been to Colony Grill, you can see by the photos on their walls how much they care about veterans and those who serve the public.  On 11/12, any United States Armed Services veteran who comes into their Stamford or Fairfield locations will receive a free pizza.  To get their free pie, vets should present a valid military photo ID.  You’ll need to eat the pizza at Colony Grill (no takeout deal), from 11:30 am to 11 pm.

Sausage, hot oil, stingers, cherry peppers, and onions at Colony Grill

In return, Colony Grill would love to get your military photos so they can be put up on display.  According to their FB post, Colony Grill has about 1,000 photos of veterans on their walls already.  The photos can be black and white or color.  The best size is 8×10 or 8.5×11.  Colony Grill will frame the pictures, so all you need to do is bring the picture.

This is a great way to honor veterans and to remember the veterans in your life who gave so much.  Even if you aren’t a veteran, think about stopping by Colony Grill on Monday to help support a restaurant that loves to give back to the community and those who sacrificed so much.
