We'd love the ability to wish each and every one of our readers a happy birthday. Even more, we'd love to give them something to celebrate. Since that is just not entirely possible, we tried to think of the next best thing. Like letting our readers know about all the free birthday meals they could be enjoying on their birthday! Below is a list of over 110 restaurants offering free birthday food.
Please note that nearly all of them require that you be a member of their club to take advantage of this free birthday stuff.
