What the hell can you get for free on your birthday now a days?

I remember back in a time when gas was less than a buck and LD's where shinny disc were a thing of the future that places actually gave you free shit when it was your birthday. You could get a free meal or a free desert or whatever little gimmicky bonus in order to get your birthday business in the door.

Though I'm having a hard time thinking of any place that would actually give you something for it being your birthday. So I bring this question to the forum. Where do they honor your date of birthday with the giving of free crap now a days?

There's a oil change/car wash place by my house that gives you a free wash on your birthday.

I'll take it

You can get a free combo meal at Del Taco if you fill out one of their cards. Of course, you have to do it in advance. Lots of other restaurants do something Red Lobster and Steak and Ale jump to my mind first.

Most of the bars I know will give you one free drink on your birthday. Last year I made the rounds to four places. A each one the bartender gave me one and at least two or three others at the bar would buy me one too.

I usually get free cake and ice cream but you know, my gf or my family buy it for me. I guess I could make you a cake for your birthday, Jack.*Jules hands Jack a birthday cake with dynamite sticks sticking out of it*

My wife's b-day is tomorrow and I told her that I would take her out to lunch.

She's torn between our favorite Italian place and Chili's... 'cause Chili's gives you a free dessert on your birthday!

Are you sure about Red Lobster? Just got back from lunch there and it was my co-workers b-day and they wouldn;t do anything. The girl even refused to sing... kind of lame

A Starsky and Hutch poster?



My daugther's birthday is today and she wanted to eat at one of those Jap. Hibachi places. They gave her fried ice cream w/a candle for desert.
