In honor of today being my birthday, I did a little research to find out where I can get some free food to celebrate!

My two favorite words happen to be "free" and "food," so when you put the two of those together, magical things happen. I searched the internet for free food/drink deals that you can enjoy on/around your birthday, and here are some of the results from Eastern Iowa restaurants:
