It’s your birthday!

24 Jan

There’s no such thing as a “free lunch”… that is, except on your birthday!  If you haven’t celebrated your birthday yet then use the list below to your advantage.  If your birthday passed already, “Happy belated Birthday!” to you and keep this list in mind for next year, and even better, share it with someone you know whose birthday is just around the river bend of time.

The list is comprised of national chain restaurants only; however, if there’s a local restaurant you’re interested in, check out its website or call to ask if there’s a birthday promo offer.  I’m merely putting out a list of places that are known to have birthday perks, not promoting actual patronage of the listed restaurants below.

Remember to have your ID ready (and you should have it anyway, especially if you’re 21 and over but look under 21…lucky you!).  Birthdays usually happen once a year and staff members at restaurants know this, so it’s normal if they ask for identification.
