In the heart of Temecula, California Bastards Canteen isn’t just a dining establishment; we are a hub of camaraderie, support, and empowerment for veterans, especially those with career and entrepreneurial aspirations. Through our initiative called VETWORK, Bastards Canteen is becoming a catalyst for bringing veterans together once a month, fostering connections, and fueling the entrepreneurial spirit within the community.

What truly sets Bastards Canteen apart is our commitment to supporting veterans beyond just providing a space to gather. Recognizing the unique challenges that veterans often face when transitioning to civilian life, particularly in the realm of entrepreneurship, different career paths, and home ownership, the team behind Bastards Canteen conceived the idea of VETWORK. At any given get together you can get resources from organizations like EGA Homes, Save The Brave, Veterans Stand Together, U.S. Vets, Revolution National Pest Council, America Works of California, Veterans Housing Alliance, Boots to Suits, Anchor Up Real Estate Group, and the list goes on.

Held regularly at Bastards Canteen, VETWORK brings together vets from all branches of the military who share a common goal: to turn their business dreams and civilian goals into reality. It’s a platform where ideas are exchanged, partnerships are formed, and mentorship flourishes. For exact dates, visit our Events page.
