Your birthday is a time to celebrate another successful revolution around the sun and take full advantage of the special perks that come with turning a year older.
And by take full advantage we mean get all the free stuff (mostly food) you possibly can within your 24 hour window of opportunity.
If you know where to look there are places all over Vancouver that will treat you like a VIP on your birthday, and lucky for you we’ll tell you just where to look.
The following is a list of free things you can get on your birthday in Vancouver.
