Birthdays are great. They’re a sign that you’ve made it through another year, you can use the day as an excuse to make people do nice things for you, and there are usually a present or two to be opened.
But did you know that there’s another benefit to doing nothing more than having been born? Free food!
Yes, you can still score some free grub on your birthday no matter how old you are, and the best part is that it doesn’t always require forcing underpaid servers to sing an off-key version of “Happy Birthday” to you for that free slice of cake.
Some offers may require prior registration, member club registration or a coupon, so be sure to read the fine print.
