Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 20, hungry seafood fans can catch a “reel” deal at Ivar’s Seafood Bars and full-service restaurants in celebration of what would have been the o-fish-al 113th birthday of Ivar Haglund, the restaurants’ iconic flounder. Throughout the day, fans who purchase one regularly priced entrée and wish Ivar “Happy Birthday,” will receive a second entrée of their choice – from a special birthday menu – for just $1.13. In addition to the birthday discounts, Ivar’s will also treat the first 113 guests at each location to a celebratory pineapple coconut mini cupcake dessert made by Cakes of Paradise in Seattle.

Fans can also get in on the birthday action and strike a pose using the custom Ivar’s photo frame on Facebook. Beginning today, guests who are Facebook users can visit, select a link for one of two celebratory digital photo frames to take a photo with Facebook’s camera feature. Once the photo is taken, fans can immediately share on their Facebook page or with friends – and include hashtag #IvarsBDay – to be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a $113 Ivar’s Gift Card. Fans can also ‘save’ the image – include hashtag #IvarsBDay – to enter via Twitter or Instagram too. The birthday contest begins March 12 and ends March 21.
