Birthday – Free? Yay!

Birthday Freebies DubaiGo Shawty, it’s yo birthday!  …. Recently, it was someone’s birthday *ahem ahem* 😛 and I found that there are plenty of places to go and enjoy free entry or an edible birthday treat on the house!

For Residents and Tourists alike, there are a few Dubai restaurants, where you can eat a whole meal for free! – Woop Woop!
So if you are planning to visit Dubai around the same time as you or a friends birthday, Make sure you check these places out and take some identification, like your Emirates ID if you are a resident, for proof. Some restaurants also may require a pre-registration to get an Amber Card or some kind of sign up, while other places will only give you your free meal if you bring a group of people to eat with you.
