Reporter’s note: Since my 365th arbitrary day around the earth happened last week, I thought I would compile a list of free things you can get on your birthday. If yours isn’t for several months, just keep this Weekly Free in your wallet until your special day comes.


On the day of your birthday, take a ride over to one of Johnny Rockets’ locations (14500 Central Ave. S.W. and 10000 Coors Bypass N.W.) for a free single-scoop sundae.


Sonic lets you have the gift of choice for your birthday — they don’t dictate your birthday freebie. Your options are a regular cream slush, a medium order of tater tots or a medium drink. This deal may not apply to the Sonic in the SUB, so ask before you set your mind on getting your birthday treat there.


If you sign up for the restaurant’s email list you will receive a coupon in your inbox for a free appetizer. Some of the most mouthwatering selections include bruschetta, fried mozzarella and garlic bread. Buca Di Beppo is located at 6520 Americas Parkway N.E.


To get your birthday meal free, the deal is that another meal has to be purchased, but if you sign up for this deal with a friend, you can repay the favor when your friend’s birthday comes around. To take advantage of this you have to sign up online for their birthday club at


Rumor has it that Denny’s will give you a free Grand Slam breakfast. All you have to do is bring an identification card with your birthday on it, and you are in for a full stomach. The nearest Denny’s is located at 2608 Central Ave. S.E.
