Birthdays and FREE stuff

So yesterday was my birthday (the big 2-9, my last year of blissful twenties...Yikes!). It was a rather mellow birthday. I didn't want a big fuss or party and it was also my boyfriend's and my sixth year anniversary (Double Yikes!) I wanted to go to Disneyland but since both of us are unemployed, it was a little out of the budget, even with the free birthday admission. (Don't feel bad, my uncle works at D-land so we can go a different time). We had a rather lovely day; McDonald's for breakfast (a rare, gluttonous, and delicious treat!) dog beach with Hank and George (Hank surprised us all when his separation anxiety finally caused him to overcome his fear of water), a very successful trip to the Newport Beach Main Library (I found the Flavor Bible!), some plant shopping at Armstrong's, dinner at Crow Bar in Corona Del Mar and then the Hangover (yes, I realize we are probably the last two people to see it). Matt also got me a super awesome mutant birthday present!

Even though I didn't get to go to Disneyland it got me thinking, "There must be other freebies for your birthday!" A quick Google search and I found this awesome blog, Hey Its Free! The author compiled a comprehensive list of restaurants and entertainment establishments that will hook it up for free on your birthday! The best ones are:
I'm a little bummed that I didn't know about these freebies earlier because you need to sign up in advanced for most of these give-a-ways. However I did signed up for the Benihana one because it is good for your birthday month. I also registered Matt, so in April when it is his birthday, he will have all the freebies!

And my birthday wish is that Hank is crowned Cutest Dog so please vote for him!

And George too! He's just as cute!!

UPDATE: My friend Wei-Bing told me you also get free admission to Glen Ivy Hot Springs and Spa in Corona!
