Birthdays and Stuff

I love birthdays. I mean, seriously, who does not love presents? Aside from physical presents there is something I’ve always enjoyed — no not 500 birthday wishes on facebook — but marketing emails from my favorite restaurants. The theme for my upcoming 27th birthday is “recession buster” because the party is at home. But seeing as people like to eat out, here are some freebies or discounts for birthday boys and girls.

Qdoba sent me an offer for buy one get one free burritos.
Arby’s sent me a coupon for a free shake with any purchase.
Hooter’s sent me a coupon good for one free entree up to $7.99.
Chili’s sent me a coupon for a free Brownie Sunday.
Capitol City Brewing Company sent me a $5 coupon.

Now, I am sure that as my birthday draws closer, I’ll get even more coupons, with some better than others. After all, it’s a recession and marketing is fierce. So, what other things can you get for free on your birthday? For one, everyone at least once in their life should spend their birthday at Humphrey’s and get a free plunger filled with a shot of liquor. What other freebies can you get?

Austin Grill offers a free meal on your birthday.
Baker’s Square offers a free piece of pie. Count me in. French silk anyone?
