Veterans Day in Stillwater

November 2nd, 2012 by chuck


 (Stillwater, MN, November 1, 2012) — For the fifth consecutive year, Leo’s Grill & Malt Shop, 131 Main St. S. in historic downtown Stillwater,  will honor Veterans and active-duty service personnel with a free meal on Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11 from 11AM-8PM.  This year, Leo’s hopes to serve free meals to over 600 Veterans because of the unique opportunity presented by the Stillwater Lift Bridge closure.    

“We asked and received permission to set up a large heated tent on Chestnut Street which will allow us the privilege to serve many more Veterans this year,” said restaurant co-owner Cory Buettner.  “The restaurant normally seats 50 people, and we will be able to seat another 100 people under the tent.”  Leo’s Grill & Malt Shop is named for Cory’s late father, Leo, a Veteran of World War II.

Inside Leo’s, Veterans can order anything from the normal menu.  Under the tent, the menu will be simplified, yet include classic burgers, fries and malts along with a blue plate turkey dinner.  No proof of Military service is required to receive a free meal.  “Some Veterans will offer their papers, but it is not necessary.  We take them on their honor,” said co-owner Naashom Buettner.

“In years past, we have spoken with some Veterans who returned from war and did not get the welcome home they deserved,”  said Buettner. “It is a privilege and honor to welcome the Veterans to our restaurant.  In the past we have served as many as 200 free meals, we hope to triple that this year.”

Another tradition will continue at 11:11 a.m. as local Veterans proceed from the Stillwater American Legion Post 48 through downtown Stillwater ending at the corner of Main St. and Chestnut, near the restaurant.  The Stillwater Police will halt traffic and the Color Guard will perform their traditional ceremony including a bugler performing “Taps”, a short prayer and a 21-gun salute.  The Washington County Historical Society will have an exhibit and a Stillwater Eagle Scout troop will display their collection of 13 different U.S. flags.   Water Street Inn, 101 Water Street, one block from Leo’s,  is offering Veterans overnight accommodatins for $11.11 on Sunday evening, November 11th.   Reservations may be made by calling 651-439-6000.    Volunteers helping at Leo’s is coordinated by Stillwater Beyond the Yellow Ribbon.

The Buettner’s welcome Wisconsin Veterans to join them,  and while the Stillwater Lift Bridge is closed for construction until mid-December,  hope they will remember to cross the river at I94 or in Osceola.

Black Bush

With an intriguing flavor and a name to match, this is our special blend.  It combines a uniquely high proportion of malt whiskey matured in former Oloroso Sherry casks with a sweet, batch-distilled grain whiskey  This unique recipe gives Black Bush its rich fruity notes and deep intense character, balanced by a unique smoothness.  The nose is big and full with a rich fruitcake aroma and intense Sherry sweetness developing into dried fruit, raisin and Christmas cake notes.  It is soft and silky on the palate with a nutty character.  A lingering sweetness on the finish shows a remarkable balance between the poier from Sherry-seasoned casks and the smoothness of the spirit.




Caramelized Onion Dip with Cilantro-Garlic Pit Crisps

Bushmill’s 10 Year

Triple distilled from 100% malted barley and matured for a minimum of 10 years mainly in Bourbon-seasoned barrels, it has aromas of honey, vanilla and milk chocolate.  The nose is fresh and zesty with notes of honey and ripe fruit.  Soft on the palate flavors of vanilla, milk chocolate and toasted wood finish crisp, clean and gently drying.


Steak Waldorf Salad with Red Apples, Spiced Walnuts and a Whiskey Spiked Honey Dijon Dressing

 Bushmills Original

The Cornerstone of the Bushmills family.  It’s a blend of Bushmills own triple distilled malt whiskey with a lighter Irish grain whiskey making it an approachable whiskey with a rich, warming taste of fresh fruit and vanilla.  It has a light and fruity nose with a spicy aroma, notes of vanilla developing into vanilla ice cream and creme brulee.  The gently warming texture coats the mouth and has a touch of honey sweetness.  The finish is crisp and fresh with a touch of spice.



Marinated Porterhouse Steak with Parmesan Paprika Butter, Wasabi Green Onions, Mashed Potatoes and Hericot Verts with Bacon


Bushmill’s 16 Year

This distinctive Irish malt whiskey is aged for 16 years in a combination of Oloroso Sherry and Bourbon-seasoned casks, then matured for several months in Port wine barrels – a unique maturation which imparts distinct notes of juicy fruits, nuts and spice, as well as a hint of ruby redness.  The robust nose carries notes of treacle toffee and sweet spice.  Full bodied with flavors of praline, honey, caramelized fruits and toasted nuts.  Deep finish of jammed berries and dark chocolate.
