My brother and his family came to visit us after Christmas – which meant they were here for my birthday. A birthday that we typically don’t celebrate in December, instead we celebrate with gifts on my half birthday in June. (Who wants to have an anniversary, Christmas, birthday and New Years within 10 days?!) But we were looking for a date night and it happened to be my birthday. Plus – in our area, there are several restaurants that offer free food on your birthday, so we capitalized.
We started out at Raising Cane’s. (Although I really wanted to start the night out at Outback with a blooming onion – but decided our plan included enough food, we didn’t need more!) We had free meals there using our tickets from the bowl game we attended earlier in the week.
From there we went to Joe’s BBQ where we redeemed my birthday meal – an appetizer plate.
We crossed the street to Liberty Market and picked up some free birthday desserts. We shared some key lime pie and salt river caramel bars.
They were small desserts and we were sharing – so we opted for another treat…Slickables, custom ice cream sandwiches. We were stuffed.
But then my sister-in-law realized she had a Krispy Kreme coupon expiring the next day – we couldn’t let it go to waste. No we didn’t eat any doughnuts, although they were fresh off the belt. We took them home for the kids for breakfast the next morning.
We were stuffed. I was really happy we decided against the blooming onion at the beginning of the night! Hiking with the family, birthday foodtopia and board games to close out the night. It was a pretty awesome birthday, not everyone is as lucky to have two birthdays a year!
