I could cry, but instead I’m not. I am finding that businesses love to give me free stuff on my birthday. I usually go to my local yogurt store and show them my i.d. and they give me a free yogurt. I could go to Denny’s and get my free birthday meal, but that’s not how I roll. Benihana is giving me $30 to have a meal on them, I am getting free cream cheese wontons from Pick up Stix and I get to cut the line at Phil’s BBQ all because I joined their e-clubs. These are a few of the things that I possibly will take advantage of because they are not today but the week or month of the day. I can’t take my free Catalina Island Birthday Trip because I have to work today and they are pretty strict about taking the trip on the actual day. Bummer. Things I will do today: I will take advantage of my free eyebrow shaping at the Benefit Brow Bar, because who doesn’t want pretty brows? What awesome gift have you gotten from a business on your birthday? Do tell.
Other cool things you could get on your birthday:
Pearl Hotel Birthday Dinner: You have to spend $50 w/ your friends, but you get a free meal on your birthday. I would do this but planning is key and I didn’t do that so I guess you won’t see me there.
Aveda Birthday Gift: Sign up for their newsletter and get a free birthday gift from the Aveda store. I think I signed up too late, but maybe next year.
Check out my cool birthday party a few years ago at Lucha Libre. I know it is pretty corny but what can I say, I couldn’t stay away from the gold booth.
Aw, I’m bummed the Pearl changed the birthday thing to minimum $50 purchase. I mean… I can see why, but they should have done buy one meal get one free or something instead. I’ve always enjoyed that one and it was my favorite! You can also get a free prime rib meal at the Boathouse on the last Thursday on the month (need reservations).
