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.
