So, for the first time that I can remember, I actually went out of my way to look for birthday specials this year. Usually a free meal from a loved one is good enough for me…but then again, it’s rare that I’m actually in town for my birthday.

Anyhow, I thought I’d post the deals that I unearthed so that those in the Phx area could take advantage of them. Mark’s b-day is in a week, so I’m sure we’ll be hitting as many of these as we can in one day :P If you have any to add to the list, lemmeno.

Restaurant Freebies:

  • Joe’s Real BBQ ( Gilbert, AZ) – Show ID and receive a free MEAL and DESSERT on your birthday. This is my favorite deal I’ve found yet. Gooooood stuff too. I love their pecan-smoked turkey breast and homemade root beer!
