Thank you for all the suggestions so far. Man, I am going to be STUFFED (for free) by the end of this birthday.
Hey, wanted to let everyone know of another freebie: the Patina group gives you either $30 or $50 (depending on which of their restaurants you choose), and it's good for up to 60 days beyond your birthday.
I'm leaning toward the $30 coupon for Ray's and Stark at LACMA, vs. the $50 for Patina at Disney Concert Hall.
i'm signed up for jersey mike's b-day club. del taco's is passable. i think they give a free shake and that's disgusting sugar syrup in a cup. corner bakery is pretty generous, not just on b-day's. but that's if you like their sweets. i think panera does something but i don't really remember and their member's card hasn't really been that worth it for me. shame cause i do like panera.
as for discounts, el torito sends out a coupon via email. benihana wasn't free for me last year, but it was a substantial discount. marie calendar's gives a discount. fuddrucker's is a free burger with purchase. if you're a kid, cpk has a b-day program.
is kingswood teppan restaurant still open in sg? i know they used to give a free lunch on your b-day but you had to have id and bring someone/people with you. not exactly sure it's worth mentioning cause that place doesn't get a lot of business and getting service from them is like bothering people mindset.
i can't remember if auntie em's pretzel was free or discount
sorry i can't be specific on the discounts. it's been a while since my b-day.
