Happy Veterans Day, Pineapple fans! As a veteran of the Air National Guard, this is a day that’s always been special to me. Take the time to thank a veteran today for serving our great country; it’s not an easy job. And it’s certainly no picnic for those who do it full time!
My husband and I have a long-standing tradition of going to eat at Applebee’s on Veterans Day; it’s not my favorite restaurant, but they do a fantastic job of recognizing veterans with their Thank You Movement campaign. (And who doesn’t like free food?)
Several other restaurants have followed in Applebees’ footsteps and are now offering deals to veterans. With proof of service, active duty and veterans can eat free at Chili’s today between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Outback Steakhouse offers a free Bloomin’ Onion. And Arby’s will give a free roast beef sandwich (whoop-de-doo. Thanks a heap, Arby’s.).
It’s been another wild week at Pineapple HQ. We got our new surfboard in, complete with amazing graphics, courtesy of Jay.
And even though there were no surfboard-hanging kits available at Home Depot, the guys even managed to get it hung on the wall. Great job!
We have been busy laying in the final media plans for 2012 for all of our clients; it’s a big project, but we are pleased about getting everything done early to ensure the best possible rates for our clients. It’s definitely worth it!
We also have some productions in the works: new Car Country spots will be filmed this month, and we are also working on plans for Taste the World Photography’s next campaign, Rockstar Row.
Barlow and Jay are heading south to visit clients next week, so I’m a little bit jealous of that. They’ll just have to have fun without me, I guess! I’m also working on travel arrangements for NADA in fabulous Las Vegas in February. We are hoping for another successful convention so we can spread the word about how awesome Pineapple is.
From all of the Pineapples, have a wonderful weekend! And a HUGE thank you to all of our veterans out there!
