Chuck E. Cheese’s – Where our Veterans and their Kids Can be Kids!

chuck-e-cheeses-veterans-dayVeteran’s Day is almost here and it has always been an incredibly important day of observation in my life. I’m a brat. Not that kind of brat. While I didn’t serve this country directly, my life was dedicated to it because of my father’s career. I wouldn’t change it for the world, but the truth is on military bases sometimes a kid can’t just be a kid (there are lot of rules). My stepdaughters are also military brats and I can tell you it wasn’t easy to have their dad away for so long. So I’m really stoked that today’s sponsor, Chuck E. Cheese’s is helping other military brats – and their families – let loose this Veteran’s Day. chuck-e-cheeses-veterans-day

Veteran’s Day at Chuck E. Cheese’s

In the United States, Veteran’s Day celebrates and honors ALL of our men and women who serve(d), past and present. There are a lot of parades and the kiddos are included. So after the parades why not keep up the festivities, really tire them out and head to Chuck E. Cheese’s? We did just that today and the hubs and I had a blast watching K have a blast.

Her favorite game/ride ever!


chuck-e-cheeses-veterans-dayWe joined in on the fun, too.


If you’re wondering about food choices, their menu has also changed over the years so if chicken fingers or a salad bar are more your style, you’re covered.chuck-e-cheeses-veterans-day

Of course, we went with the tried and true – pizza! And since we have different tastes there was no issue at all doing a half pepperoni/half beef and mushroom.chuck-e-cheeses-veterans-day

Headed Out

Okay, ready to head out? Here’s the scoop and some of the legal stuff:
On Veteran’s Day, November 11th, Chuck E. Cheese’s is offering one free personal pizza to all active duty and retired service members at their participating nationwide stores.  This means you:

  • Active duty military
  • Individual ready reserves
  • Former members in receipt of retired pay
  • Families of the above

Now do NOT forget the Uniformed Services ID card or Common Access Card! It will be required. There is a limit of one discount per military service member and the offer is good Veteran’s Day, November 11th, only!

Time to take off

After two and a half hours it was time to count the tickets and for K to grab some loot. There were so many choices she almost had a hard time choosing. I may have convinced her to throw in a bag of cotton candy. I had a craving, what can I say? 😉  After making some fine selections we headed out.


One more thing!

I have to tell you that one thing I’ve always loved is their matching system. And they’re strict about it, too. Once K and the hubs and I showed our little tattoos (well in the hubs’ case, big ones, too) they let us make our way out. There was a woman near us with a little boy trying to head out, but they hadn’t been stamped and they got a manager to figure out the situation. I appreciate that they take safety seriously. A big thumbs on that from me.

It was fun times and, yeah, a kid can be a kid, but they won’t tell if you act like one, too!

A happy girl!
