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, but make sure you contact them to see if they're still offering these items. Also, 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 that you have adequate stomach room and a raging sweet tooth, you 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 Café, Cattlemen's Steakhouse, Café do Brasil, and Metro Wine Bar & Bistro.
Harkins Theatres Bricktown 16
The Harkins Theatres Bricktown 16 is certainly one of the best in the metro, and it's even better on your birthday. You receive a $5 credit to your Harkins Awards Member account that you can use for box office or concession stand purchases.
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 have yet to experience the fun. On your birthday, OKC Improv admission is absolutely free, so check it out. Shows are on Friday and Saturday at the Paramount Theatre on 11 North Lee Avenue. It's between Main and Sheridan, west of the Myriad Botanical Gardens.
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 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.
