If you were born on Feb. 29, you are a Leapling, and this is your year. Celebrate with a FREE entree at Hard Rock Cafe. Lots of restaurants offer a free appetizer, dessert or drink on your birthday, but since LeapYear Day is just once every four years, partiicpating Hard Rocks can afford to go all out with a full meal.
A valid photo ID is required, and since not all locations are participating in the birthday freebie deal, you should call ahead to make sure your local location is participating.

The downside of Leap Year birthdays is that you get to celebrate just one day, instead of the day before or day after – or both – as you usually do.
Here’s what’s on the birthday freebies menu at Hard Rock Cafe:
Legendary Burger – (pictured above) Certified Angus Beef® patty topped with smoked bacon, Cheddar cheese, a golden fried onion ring, crisp lettuce and vine ripened tomato, on a toasted brioche bun, with seasoned fries.
