To be a qualified participant, a customer must provide a valid government ID showing their date of birth as February 29; no purchase necessary!
If you have a February 29 birthday, a visit to Del Frisco’s Grille, where Leap Year babies can dig into a complimentary order of the Grille’s delightful Cheesesteak Eggrolls. Shredded steak is merged with melted cheese rolled in a wonton wrapper and served with sweet and spicy chili sauce.

Located south of the Mediterranean this area is rich with olives, chilies, garlic, saffron, and other spices and ingredients you’d expect from a decidedly Spanish influence. Check online for details and to reserve your spot.
