In honor of Ivar Haglund’s 108th birthday, all Ivar’s Seafood Restaurants, including 23 Seafood Bars and full service restaurants throughout Washington state, will be offering special $1.08 dining deals on Tuesday, March 19.
Throughout the day, guests can purchase one full-priced entrée and receive a second entrée from a special birthday menu for just $1.08, simply by exclaiming “Happy Birthday, Ivar” when placing the order.
In addition to the birthday discounts, Ivar’s will also treat the first 108 guests at each of its locations to a blueberry birthday cake pop, one of Haglund’s favorite flavors.
To add to the festivities, Ivar’s is also hosting a “Ivar Haglund Birthday Video and Photo Contest” on its Facebook page. Through March 20, Ivar’s fans can enter by uploading a creative video or photo wishing happy birthday to Haglund, for a chance to net a $108 Ivar’s gift card or other prizes. Winners will be selected based on originality and creativity by a panel of Ivar’s judges. Click here to enter the contest.
