Free Food & Drinks In NYC On Your Birthday

For my birthday last summer, I listed lots of free things you can get on your special day (re-post below). But today we bring you an even better list of free birthday food and drinks from Wined & Dined. Here are a couple that stand out, but you can read the whole list here. As always, call ahead to make sure these deals are still in effect.

- Dive Bar (Amsterdam at 95th/96th) — A deal that gets better with time. They will give you as many free wings as your age (when you turn 40, you get 40 wings free).

- Vesta (8th b/t 29th & 30th) — Free cake and bottle of champagne for your big day.


If you join the Cold Stone Creamery Birthday Club, you can swing by for free ice cream. Not to be outdone, Baskin Robbins also gives away free scoops to anyone who joins its Birthday Club. Quizno's will give you a free cookie on your birthday if you sign up for their QClub.

And what's a birthday without a bit of liquor? At Cheap Shots in the East Village, you can drink for free all night long on your special day.

Here is a list of some bars where you can drink for free if you bring along some of your pals.

Panic Paddle (A Great New Game!) + Free Beer In Williamsburg

Last week, I fell in love with a game called Panic Paddle. Essentially, it's a form of ping pong in which up to 30 people can play in a single game. You can read the rules here and then go and watch the video below to see what it's like when there are three people left.

So now that I've got you hooked, you're probably thinking... where can I play this amazing game? Well, every Monday at Rock Star Bar (351 Kent Avenue on the corner of South 5th Street) in Williamsburg, a group gathers to play. The winner of each game gets a free drink -- we probably played about 50 rounds last week.

Tonight, there's a COLT 45 open bar from 9PM - 10PM and $3 PBRs all night long!

Free Pizza At O'Hanlon's During Football Games

O'Hanlon's, an Irish bar in the Village (349 East 14th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenue) shows all the NFL games each week. But there is a problem... they don't serve any food. Have no fear! During halftime of the 1:00 PM game (that's around 2:15 for you non-football folks) they order in free pizza for everyone at the bar. So if you happen to conveniently swing by the bar then... looks like you might find yourself some free lunch!
