It's one of those nice little treats in life, a free birthday dinner. Many restaurants offer something to that effect.
On June 24th one Omaha man took some of those offers to the extreme.
On Randy Santel's 27-th birthday, he ate at 27 restaurants, not paying a dime.
The entire adventure is on YouTube and gaining attention.
"Every place in Omaha that I could think of I just signed up online, and a lot of them give out free birthday coupons. Some are buy one get one free, some are free with no purchase, and some are just five or ten off a big purchase or something like that. It is amazing of what you can actually do if you just put in the five seconds a restaurant," said Santel.
When finished after hours of eating, Santel had consumed more than 16,000 calories.
