Eat And Drink For Free All Day By Pretending It’s Your Birthday

A lot of restaurants will give you something for free on your birthday, and with the right approach so will a lot of bars. The thing is, your birthday only comes around once a year, so this video shares some social engineering manoeuvres to ensure you have a very happy un-birthday.

If you’re not interested in waiting for your birthday to come around, YouTube channel The Hacks Of Life shares some mildly evil tips on how to snag yourself some free grub and drinks. Showing up with a group and having them dress like it’s your birthday can score you a free meal or dessert at restaurants. So can walking into an establishment with a self-placed “kick me” sign that just so happens to mention your birthday as well. The real dastardly tip is making a sad call to the bartender at the bar you’re at, informing him that “your friends” couldn’t make it for your birthday, and enjoying a free drink.

You probably shouldn’t abuse these tips — if you decide to use them at all — and keep in mind that you’re basically lying to someone’s face. Then again, who hasn’t told the wait staff it’s their buddy’s birthday to embarrass them? You might be thinking that these tips are too evil, but you might also be thinking about grabbing a free breakfast sometime soon.
