After successfully staging a ‘Veterans Eat Free’ event last Veterans Day, owner Tony Victorino and his crew at Hula’s in Escalon are going to do it again.
Victorino has issued an invitation to all veterans – from Escalon, Oakdale, Riverbank and surrounding areas – to stop by the restaurant on Saturday, Nov. 11 to enjoy a free meal.
“I think we did over 50-some odd meals last year,” said Victorino.
Hours for the event will be the entire day on Nov. 11, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., with veterans invited to come in any time during the day for the free meal.
“We’re not requiring ID,” Victorino added. “I’m a vet myself; I spent four years in the Coast Guard.”
He said the free meal is a way to offer thanks to veterans for their service.
Hula’s is on Jackson Avenue (Highway 120) at the east edge of town.
