There's nothing more American than demanding something for free because it's your birthday. It doesn't matter how old you get, you're inevitably going to ask (actually you're going to put your spouse up to it), "Do I get anything for my birthday?!"
Firelake Grill is doing something so completely un-American on its birthday, it's practically communist. They're giving stuff away instead!
Homeland security might want to get on this one.
During the month of March, get two beers and two burgers for $24 in the cocktail bar daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cheeseburgers, buffalo burgers, turkey burgers, walleye burgers -- hey, it's your un-birthday. Do what you like.
Also, Sundays through Thursdays through the month of March, choose an entree and receive a glass of wine or champagne on the house.
