Jumping On The Leap Year Bandwagon

By Kendra Marr

Just like the 7-7-07 wedding frenzy, a number of local businesses are jumping on the Leap Year bandwagon today.
The Honor Society for Leap Year Day Babies estimates that there are 200,000 "leapers" (with Feb. 29 birthdays) in the United States and about 4 million worldwide.

Those special celebrants, as well as their friends, will be eating well:

At California Tortilla, just leap into the air while ordering any entree and receive free chips and queso. Present proof that you were born on February 29th and get a free burrito.

Morton's Steakhouse in Baltimore, Annapolis and Richmond is offering a free steak and seafood dinner to birthday boys and girls.

Papa John's
wants to treat leapers to a large one-topping Papa's Perfect Pan pizza. Just visit www.papajohns.com to order the pizza, and be sure to bring in proof of our birthday when you pick it up. Everyone else can buy three Perfect Pan pizzas with up to three toppings for $29.29, or get cheese sticks for $2.29 with the purchase of a regular large specialty pan pizza.

And if all that eating makes you sleepy, Kimpton Hotels is offering special rates and packages -- to leapers and non-leapers alike -- in its Arlington, Alexandria and the District locations tomorrow.

Know any other deals? Send 'em our way.
