Military Spouse Appreciation Date Night

Here at the Blueridge Group, we have a deep respect and appreciation for the military and the people who serve their country. However, we also believe that you don’t have to necessarily be in uniform to serve. The unsung heroes are all the wives and husbands that support, take care of, and patiently wait at home for their loved ones. This is why we want to take Military Spouse Appreciation Day as an opportunity to highlight the work they do for their partners and, in turn, for our country.

Are you in the military? This weekend, say “thank you” and “I love you” to your better half by planning a date night (or day!) with us. Our elegant ambiance, freshly made dishes, and friendly service will make your outing a delight. Plan a lunch al fresco, as most of our locations have outdoor seating, and stay refreshed with our selection of handcrafted cocktails.

Or… keep it classic with a romantic night out and stop by for a delicious dinner. Both our Stanford Grill locations and the Copper Canyon Grill location in Glenarden offer live Jazz music from 6-9 pm for even more of those romantic vibes. Finish your meal by sharing a sweet dessert that’ll keep both your hearts warm and happy. Another option? Stop by for Sunday brunch for a relaxed vibe and a complimentary beverage.

No matter the type of date you go for, we encourage you to celebrate your military spouse today and always! Make a reservation today at your favorite Stanford Grill or Copper Canyon Grill today. We can’t wait to welcome you both this weekend!
