Restaurants where you can eat for free on your birthday in GTA?

Taking my wife out for her birthdaym, and as a laugh want to take her somewhere where she can eat for free on her birthday?

Any ideas in the GTA?

  1. Tuckers Market, it's buffet style it's just eh. The steak sandwiches are good though.

    1. Really? I once had a free ice cream sundae on my birthday when I was 6 somewhere in California. And you used to get a free shot of something awful at the Elbow in London, ON (the trick was to show your ID to as many bartenders as possible). I think I would need to make dinner reservations somewhere nice immediately AFTER a stunt like that!

      1. Casey's used to have a free birthday dinner.

        1. By The Way cafe at Bloor & Brunswick sends out coupons to regular customers, usually every year around your birthday with a coupon for a free dinner. How you get on that list, I'm not 100% sure... I think my wife filled out something years ago. Not sure if they would give you the freeby if you just walked in, but if you were nice they might...

          1. It is not a free meal, but you get a dozen free bagels at any What-A-Bagel in the city on your birthday.

              Twelve bagels can be a couple of meals. :)

                ^^Re- what a bagel-the Eglinton location has discontinued this.

                I am an unhappy b-day girl.

                i am going to Lokshen alfredo as mentioned elsewhere- hopefully that will make up for it.

                  i'm reasonably sure that i saw a sign at what-a-bagel at yonge and eg for the free birthday dozen.

                    I know I got mine at Yonge & Eg last February no problem, I actually ended up going to 3 different locations! Love that policy, even if they're not the greatest bagels. But free IS free, after all.
