Happy Birthday to me!

It's my birthday month! I used to love to celebrate my birthday with my friends Caine, Shane, and Sheri at Buca di Beppo, blowing out the candelabra in the Pope Room while wearing a specially made birthday hat. (Thank you to Shane and his glue gun.) This is me in 2005 at Buca in my furry blue hat and matching Barbie Cake. If you never had a Barbie Cake as a little girl, you haven't LIVED until you have a Barbie Cake. Now THAT was a party. Thanks to Caine, Shane, Josh, Cindy, Sheri, Jess, Deva, Daphne, and Blake (from across the room).

Now, I'm freeloadin' all month long. I love all the free food my favorite restaurants send me for my birthday, including Buca. You can get in on the goods, too. Just visit the websites of some of these restaurants and sign up for your birthday treats. See if you can make your birthDAY stretch out into a birthWEEK like I do. Next year, I'm going for a birthQUARTER. Think big.

Happy birthday!

I got an email today from DSW Shoes and misread the subject thinking it was a $10 coupon for my birthday (which is next month). I thought "wow - they're early!" but then realized it's a DSW member anniversary coupon.

Anyway, that made me think that I should get busy and sign up for every freebie or discount I can find before my birthday. And then I check your blog and find out you've got a great list started. Thank you!

Here's one I signed up for last month that I didn't see on your list:


I have a Sweet Tomatoes near my office, but unfortunately they don't have a lot of locations in Dallas.

You get something from Rockfish for your birthday (a free appetizer with purchase of food?). http://rockfishgrill.fbmta.com/members/UpdateProfile.aspx?Action=Subscribe&InputSource=W

If I remember correctly, Rockfish sends a free entree coupon on your birthday, and they also send regular $5 off a $20 purchase emails as well. Souper Salad also sends a free meal on your birthday along with regular coupons throughout the year - and if you don't want to sign up for their emails, I recommend visiting their website prior to every visit since they post their coupons on their site. Fresh Choice does the same!

Here is another place to get free food on your B-Day....Sonny Bryan's BBQ. They give you a free gift or free entree just for signing up for their email list. Then they send you a coupon just before your B-Day for a free meal.
