What to Do in Indy this Veteran’s Day

Veteran’s Day is almost here. A time to honor all those who have served in our armed forces. After all, it’s an unpleasant job but these folks chose to take it on anyway. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what Indy’s doing for this Veteran’s Day.

Caution, this being the Midwest, you can bet there’s food involved. Lots of it.

Civic Events

On November 11th, at 10:30 AM the Veteran’s Day Memorial Service will begins. The event starts with a musical performance starring the 38th Division Band of the Indiana National Guard. Subsequently, at 11:00, the memorial service itself will begin. There will be guest speakers, a wreath laying, and finally a flyover for all you aviation enthusiasts out there.

Following the service, downtown Indy will have a parade featuring over different 80 units. The parade begins at Pennsylvania and Michigan and finishes at North. Aside from showing Illinois and Ohio our military might, the parade will allow Indianapolis to show our vets how much we appreciate their service.

Lastly, Primo’s Banquet Hall and Convention Center will host a Veteran’s Day feast. There will be music, an awards ceremony and, of course, lots of food!

Around Town

Now, you all remember the warning I gave you up top right? Well, I meant it. Here in the Midwest, we’re all about the food and Veteran’s Day is no different. So for all you hungry vets out there, as well as you currently serving, be aware that many of our restraints are giving discounts.

We have discounts from chains like Applebee’s and IHOP of course. But why don’t we look at what our local restaurants are doing?

If your a fan of all that is grilled, why not stop by Firebirds? Especially considering they have a buy one get one free deal for vets. Check ’em out on Meridian and 96th.

Or maybe a good, old-fashioned burger floats your boat, you all-American you! If so, why not try Bru Burger Bar? Located on Massachusetts, Bru offers a selection of hearty meals.

But if you’re feeling adventurous, a trip to Livery may be just the thing for you! Specializing in Latin American cuisine, Livery operates out of a converted stable. An extensively remolded and tastefully decorated converted stable. located on College Ave. Hence the name. What, did you think the name meant they serve liver dishes?

Last but not least, we have Mesh! Specializing in fusion cuisine, Mesh offers unique dishes and exciting combos. Located on Massachusetts (did I just repeat myself?), Mesh always has something for everyone.

So, in conclusion, there’s a whole lot to do this Veteran’s Day. Indy always honors those who have served in our armed forces, and we do it with food and parades! What can I say? We Midwesterners area patriotic bunch.

Celebrate and eat well!
