Alameda in DTLA is making this year special by hosting a Leapling Birthday Breakfast to indulge in hot cakes, French toast, omelets and pancake-stack cakes with candles on the balloon-festooned outdoor patio from 8-9:30 a.m. Leaplings can enjoy a free Big Cheeseburger all day Saturday at participating Farmer Boys locations.
In honor of the 2020 leap year, cult-favorite ice cream brand Van Leeuwen has dubbed Saturday “The Day that Doesn’t Count.” All scoop shops will be upgrading a single scoop order to a double all day long. To enjoy the cool upgrade, simply whisper the secret words “cheat day” to your scooper. You can choose to get a scoop of the same flavor, or mix and match.
