Operation Bday: 84 Birthday Freebies in San Francisco / East Bay

Apparently America really is "the land of the free!"

I put this list together a few months ago as a birthday gift for a friend who lives in the San Francisco / East Bay area, and was AMAZED by the number of birthday offers out there.

I know where I'm spending my birthday this year (...or next year... or when travel becomes normal again).

The list is a few months old now, so as always, make sure you call ahead to ascertain the validity of the offer.

You can see this data in spreadsheet form, as well as some additional info regarding eligibility on this spreadsheet.
