I remember going to Denny’s used to be an annual tradition because you’d get your meal free on your birthday. I was incredibly bummed when they stopped the policy, not so much because I liked Denny’s (I’d only go once a year as it was) but because I liked the idea of getting something free.
Last time I checked, Blondie’s pizza in the Bay Area used to give a free slice on your b-day, but I haven’t been there on the right day in years, so don’t know if they still do it.
So, what chains (large or small, national or regional) still give free food/goods/services if it’s your birthday? And I’m not talking about “they always give me this at my local whatever”, but a more formal, written policy.
