Happy happy birthday! May all your dreams come true! And every New Yorker’s dream is free food. Here are five places where you can get free food on your birthday:
Unfortunately, you’ll have to buy your own bread and mustard, because they just give you the meat. But that’s a start! Sign up here for your free birthday meat.
2. City Crab
Now here you can get a whole entree for free! If you sign up for the City Crab newsletter, you’ll get a 15 percent off coupon to use now, and a free entree on your birthday.
This sushi place will give you a gift certificate which is valid for any day during your birthday month, if you sign up for their monthly newsletter. You probably won’t be able to afford the sushi roll with caviar and gold flakes on top, but you can still get a nice lunch.
4. La Contenta
This is the easiest one. If you just tell your server at this Mexican restaurant that it’s your birthday, you’ll get a free dessert and a free shot of their finest agave spirit. Feliz cumpleaños!
5. Ben & Jerry’s
Finish your special day with a free ice cream. You’ll have to brave either Times Square or Rockefeller Center to get it, but everyone loves Ben & Jerry’s so it’s worth it. Sign up for their ChunkMail newsletter to get the coupon.
