This is off the immediate topic, but I really wanted to thank you for organizing the birthday deals section. It was my partner’s bday this past weekend, and we got her a free meal at Vege Thai, Denny’s, and Pastini Pastaria, as well as free ice cream cones at Ben and Jerry’s and BaskinRobbins. It was a delicious weekend!
