Launderette offering free birthday cake ice cream sandwiches Sunday

It’s Launderette’s second birthday, and the East Austin restaurant is offering one of its most popular desserts for free for Sunday dinner patrons.

According to a release from the restaurant, Launderette will offer diners free birthday cake ice cream sandwiches from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday. One “slice of cake” will be offered to each guest eating dinner at the restaurant Sunday.

Matthew Odam describes the dessert as “bite-size birthday cake ice cream sandwiches that taste like Mexican sheet cake ice cream wedged between soft layers of cookie dough” in his 2015 review of the restaurant.

The Dallas-based chain, which has five locations in the Austin area, will be offering the croissants all day.

Bon appétit and have a happy fall.

That’s right — it’s Chick-Fil-A’s 11th annual Cow Appreciation Day.

If you’re looking for the full meal deal, which is available for the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus and includes a side and a drink, you have to go big or go home with your cow attire.

If you do not already have a cow costume on hand and need help making one, Chick-Fil-A’s Tumblr has a few thrifty suggestions.

Here is what we’ve seen so far on social media in honor of #cowappreciationday:
