Birthday Freebies in Regina

As of last week, I am officially in the final year of my 20s. That has me a little worried because they say it is the 30s when you are forced to finally grow-up... and I really do not want to do that. So, with that sense of impending doom in mind, I decided to embrace my inner child and find some birthday "freebies" around Regina.

There was just a pesky little pandemic in the way.

Because of this, I didn't feel it was right (or safe) to visit a dozen stores around the city, many of them restaurants, asking for free things. A lot of small businesses are hurting right now and asking for free things "just because" doesn't help them at all.

Instead, I chose one place to visit – Dessart Sweets – and I got my free birthday ice cream from them. I then bought all the Dino Sour candies they had on display. I considered it a little birthday present to myself, and I was happy to give the folks over there a sale.

Beyond Dessart Sweets, there are a plethora of other places in Regina you can get free things on your birthday too. Although it's great that these businesses offer freebies, it's also a good idea to buy something while you are there too.

While I was putting this list together, I learned a lot of Regina businesses require advance signups to qualify for their freebies. I understand why they do that, and I also understand that maybe you don't want to give your personal data over to another business. With both of those in mind, I broke up the list below into two sections so to better give the companies exposure, and to get you the birthday freebies you want.

Free Stuff (No Signup Required)

  1. Birmingham's Vodka and Ale House – a free beer
  2. Coney Island Poutine – a free poutine
  3. Denny's – a free birthday breakfast
  4. Dessart Sweets – a free ice cream
  5. Fresh Carnival - a free milkshake
  6. Leopold's Tavern – a free beer 
  7. Malty National – a free beer
  8. Rainbow Cinemas – a free movie
  9. Victoria's Tavern – a free beer (and also a free appetizer if you order through their website)

Rock Creek Tap & Grill offers a free birthday dessert, but you need to purchase a meal first.

In the past, many people got a free birthday dessert at Willow on Wascana, but since their name change to Bar Willow, they discontinued this offer. 

Free Ice Cream in Dessart Sweets

Free Stuff (Signup Required)

  1. Arby's – free shake and a free BOGO Beef and Cheddar Sandwich
  2. Boston Pizza – free dessert plus other freebies and discounts, like a free starter, free bandera bread, free pizza, etc.

  5. David's Tea – free loose-leaf tea
  6. Dairy Queen – free ice cream cone
  7. Good Earth – free coffee
  8. Harvey's – a free burger for your birthday (and free onion rings for signing up)
  9. Kenton de Jong Travel – free list of 100+ things to do in Regina (sorry!)
  10. Marble Slab Creamery – free ice cream
  11. Mary Browns Chicken  – free chicken sandwich
  12. Mr. Mike's – free entree and free dessert, with a 2-week period to redeem it
  13. Perkin's – free breakfast

  15. Red Lobster – various different free foods, available a week before your birthday and three weeks after it.
  16. Starbucks – free coffee
  17. Sephora – free miscellaneous makeup
  18. Second Cup – free coffee 

The Body Shop also gives a free $10 off purchase birthday coupon for signing up, but that's not free since you're still required to pay for something. Cora's also gives you a $5 coupon for your birthday, as well as a personalized message from Madam Cora. Additionally, Quiznos also gives you free birthday points, but I don't consider "points" to be a freebie.

A lot of online websites also list the Keg Steakhouse as having a birthday freebie, but they actually stopped offering that in Canada so they don't make the list.

Have you taken an advantage of any of these freebies? Are there any that I missed? Let me know in the comments below!

Journey to Ted Bundy’s Cellar

There are three things Salt Lake City is known for: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Ted Bundy and skiing. Since we talked about the former already, and I'm no good at the latter, you can probably guess what this article is about.

From 1974 to 1978 Ted Bundy kidnapped, murdered and raped young women and girls across the United States. Between 1974 and 1975, he spent much of his time killing in Idaho, Utah, and Colorado, with his base being in Salt Lake City.

Bundy moved to Salt Lake City to attend the University of Utah Law School, and left his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer in Seattle, Washington. However, he was not faithful to Kloepfer (besides the raping part) and would date at least a dozen other women while in Salt Lake City.

Did I Really Eat Dog in Mexico?

They say "When in Rome do as the Romans do", so the same logic should also apply to Mexico, right?

That was what I was thinking when I sat down in a classy Mexican restaurant a few weeks ago. The following morning would be the wedding -- the main reason I went to Mexico -- so this meal was to get acquainted with traditional Mexican drinks and dishes. As I was pouring over the menu trying to decipher it, the man beside me pointed out the "Tacos" section. I knew what a taco was, so it seemed like a safe place to order from. He then ran through the types of tacos on the menu. One was beef, one was shrimp and the other was dog.

I had to stop him. "Dog? Really?" Yes. It was three dog tacos. I decided then that if dog was what was commonly served in Mexico, then it's something I should try. When in Rome, right?
