Next stop, Bed Bath and Beyond. We really only had to go here to get a friend’s wedding gift. Although Bed Bath and Beyond does not offer any giveaways for your birthday, my dad did get to relax in this fun chair with a canopy to rest up for our next stop.
Next stop, Schlotzsky’s. Schlotsky’s will send you a coupon just for signing up with the Bun & Fun eclub, and they’ll also send you a coupon for a free small Original sandwich on your birthday. We love Schlotzsky’s! This was one of the best deals for your birthday!
Next stop, Trudy’s! Trudy’s offers you a free Mexican Martini, beer, or shot on your birthday. Dad chose the Mexican Martini. He didn’t just get one Martini, they gave him the whole tumbler which ended up being 4 glasses! Don’t try to pull a fast one on the people at Trudy’s, they check your ID to make sure it really is your birthday.
Dad also received coupons from Baskin Robbins and Red Robin. Baskin Robbins offers you a free scoop of ice cream on your birthday (expires 5 days after your birthday) and Red Robin offers you a free burger on your birthday (expires 14 days after your birthday). Dad really wanted to use these coupons today, but we had to convince him to save room for his SURPRISE PARTY tonight at Threadgill’s, an Austin local favorite.
My mom started planning a suprise party for my dad a couple of weeks ago. We told my dad that we had to pick mom up from her meeting which was off of Lamar. Threadgill’s is on Lamar so it was perfect. Dave drove and none of us saw Threadgill’s so we drove down Lamar, past Threadgill’s. I guess Dave looked a little confused and my dad said, “Dave, if you’re looking for Threadgill’s, we already passed it.” Shoot. We turned around and arrived at our destination within minutes. We walked in to our own private room and my dad was really excited to see 20 of his closest friends there to welcome him!
Thanks to everyone for coming out, you really made it a birthday to remember! Happy birthday, Dad!
