The birthday freebies showing up in my email box inspired me to compile a list of the best dining birthday freebies. A whole bunch of places will give you free dessert at the end of your birthday meal (either with or without signing up for their email list) so if you want to go that route, just check with your favorite restaurants about their offers. But how about completely free food or a great free entrée deal? Here’s my list of my top choices that I was able to verify (there are a lot of rumors out there). If I’m missing an awesome one, let us know about it!
