On the day of Veronica’s Birthday, a gift from me to me…5 Grand Slam Breakfasts from Denny’s!
That’s right, just drive to as many as you can, show the cashier/manager your driver’s licence or birth of certificate, and start ordering from the menu! I chose two pancakes, two strips of turkey bacon, hash browns, and scrambled eggs. 5 times! Did I have to cook breakfast two days in a row. NO!
My daughter helped me print out all of the coupons I needed for this odyssey. Next was several trips to Jack in the Box for some free goodies. I only had two choices on December 23rd for my birthday: chocolate cake or New York cheesecake for a free desert. So I chose five slices of cheesecake.
One free scoop of ice cream with a sugar cone was waiting for me at Baskin Robbins thanks to being signed up for the BK Club. A gift from my daughter. I chose pralines and cream.
The other coupon for this place was for $3 off a ice cream cake. The problem was there was a $15.99 cake minimum and I had to end up at the BK store where there wasn’t a cake for that price! I purchased a large cake for $25.99 and the discount was applied to that price.
My family and I like WingStop for the buffalo wings and the fries. I had two coupons this time! Sign up for the Wingstop Newsletter/Club and you get a coupon for free fries on your birthday! My coupon stated that it was good until 1/7/2012. I wasn’t going to wait that long!
I also had a card that said “Order 10 piece chicken minimum and receive a free side order” So what did I decide to get as a side? Yes, more fries for the family!
Now I needed some hubby and me time, so we went to Luka’s Taproom Bar and Grill. Free entry for the birthday girl! Sat at the bar and listened to a live concert. Performer Bobby Brackins who sings “143” was in the club getting it jumping!
We didn’t stay for long because the crowd was too rowdy and the songs were too loud and out there for me. Plus the dance floor was filled to capacity. But I did have a nice birthday providing for my family and hanging out with the hipsters at night.
