While sitting at Fogg n Suds Sunday night watching the Canucks cruise into a 7 game win streak [chb], I noticed that they have a birthday special. Being a couple that tends to spend little money, and just to milk the fact that it’s my birthday, I thought I would check into the kinds of deals you can find in this town on your special day – mine being January 9th.
It used to be that Kelly O’Brien’s was the place to go on your birthday since you got a free meal. Actually, many more places used to have the “free” meal policy but it seems nowadays it’s mostly just “any entree up to $____”. So just what can I get in Vancouver for the next 24 hours?
Fogg n Suds – Bring 3 friends and your meal/dessert are on the house (up to $20).
Free: Dessert: Milestones, Odouls, Sammy J Peppers, White Spot, TGIFriday’s, Red Robin (warning, singing may be involved)
Red Robin – Coupons, if you sign up for their email spam, and dessert.
Kelly O’Briens – Free entree (not sure the “up to” amount)
The Keg – Dessert and then they will sing to you as well.
Any others? For now, I’ve got a breakfast scheduled, made by my husband. I hope he doesn’t sing.
Update: TGI Friday’s and Denny’s both give free meals on your birthday (unsure of limit)
Boston Pizza, Swiss Chalet, and Las Margaritas – Free dessert
Mondo’s Gelato – Free scoop
Blockbuster Rewards – Free rental
Rogers Video – Free rental
Update: SOME Blenz locations also offer a free beverage on your birthday. Ask before you order.
