    And I know we have a few...

    Tomorrow if you go to the Cliff Restaurant in Laguna Beach (one of my favorites), you get to eat for free. Last year I just happened to be there with my daughter on Veteran's Day, and it was a great surprise!

    Also... Lucille's in Mission Viejo is offering 20% off your bill the entire month of November. Buy some meal tix at CostCo, and you'll save about 40% off standard prices... and then you can give your server a huge tip (as I did today). I recommend sitting in the bar... no wait, and the ambience is awesome.

    I don't have tomorrow as a holiday, so I'm taking it as vacation time. I have never had Veterans Day as a holiday. Kudos to all who served.

    I would join the Luge flag ride, but it doesn't seem to be happening. o_O

    My avatar is from the Luge Flag ride in 2010 :) I was representing Army, and we had all branches there... with two Navy. (I am the dude on the far right).

    The military isn't for everyone... but in my case I truly feel it saved my life.

    I'm annoyed that my organization stopped observing it. Normally, I'd head down to Newport and spend the afternoon buying my little bro/favorite veteran his gin martinis but, I'll have to just buy the one vet at the office a breakfast burrito. I will say, that the breakfast burritos at Wake and Late in DTLA maybe the best in So. Cal.-Fit for a Vet for sure!

    I bought a flag this evening and I am going up there tomorrow to replace it unless someone beats me to it.

    PS: The flag I bought is made in... wait for it....

    I took this picture, but probably wasn't allowed to...

    Nope. You simply had different priorities.

    Not everyone can serve in the military. Not everyone should. You serve in a different way, but one just as important. Never forget that.
