I confidently predict that every one of you will have a birthday some time during the next year. Let me be the first to wish you a very happy day.
A large number of businesses offer you free stuff on your birthday, ranging from ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery (or most other ice cream chains) to free movie rentals at Hollywood Video. Some of my favorites include Red Robin, Noodles & Co., and Souper Salad, in addition to the aforementioned Cold Stone. (Did you know some Cold Stone stores have no-sugar-added Cake Batter now? This flavor will also be present in heaven, I’m sure.) I was particularly impressed that Benihana will send you a coupon worth $30 for a free birthday dinner—I just wish our closest Benihana was less than an hour away.
