You deserve to celebrate, and there are a number of Oklahoma City establishments wishing you a great day with free birthday treats and extras. Here are a few of them, and if you know of others, let me know so I can add them to the list. Keep in mind that you'll likely have to show an ID.

There are literally hundreds of national chain restaurants that give out birthday freebies, usually desserts. Provided he or she has the adequate stomach room and a raging sweet tooth, a person could certainly use the day to hit the town acquiring freebie after freebie.
But you might not be aware that many local establishments, even fine dining spots, do this as well. Some will ask you to sign up for a loyalty program or rewards card. At others, you just need to ask. Examples include Cheever's, Cattlemen's, Cafe do Brasil and Metro Wine Bar & Bistro.

Harkins Bricktown Theatre
The Harkins Theatre in Bricktown is certainly one of the best in the metro, and it's even better on your birthday. Before you catch your flick, just go to the box office and show ID to receive a coupon for a free medium sized popcorn.

Use your birthday as an opportunity to try something new. OKC Improv has been presenting live, improvisational shows since 2009, but many around the metro unfortunately have yet to experience the fun. On your birthday, OKC Improv admission is absolutely free, so check it out. Shows are at the Paramount Theatre downtown at 11 North Lee Avenue. It's between Main and Sheridan, west of the Myriad Botanical Gardens.Continue to 5 of 6 below.

Health and Beauty
How about recognizing the day you came into the world with a little pampering? Just ask your favorite spa or salon if they have any birthday specials or deals. For example, Royal Nail Spa in Penn Square Mall advertises birthday freebies, and while you're in the mall, stop by Sephora for a free birthday gift if you join the beauty store's Insider program.

No, these are definitely not just for kids, so don't be ashamed to turn back the clock and get your game on. On your birthday, have a great time with arcade games, ticket games, sports games and much, much more. Obviously, Chuck E. Cheese's and Dave & Buster's are hoping you'll celebrate a large party at their establishments, but even if it's just you and a friend, both have rewards programs that offer free games on your birthday. The former issues good old-fashioned tokens while the latter has the rechargeable cards.
