I like cheesecake…like I REALLY like cheesecake. So much so that I’ve had cheesecake for my birthday cake, made pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving and once tried a Fruitcake inspired cheesecake. I won’t do that again…it was pretty bad.

Today is National Cheesecake Day! A day to celebrate that dissert that’s neither a pie or a cheese or a cake. So where can you get free or discounted slices today in the Capital District? I’m glad you asked, here’s my list.

CHEESECAKE FACTORY – Colonie Center, ½ Priced slices of their more than 30 cheesecake flavors today.

TEXAS DE BRAZIL – Crossgates Mall, Free slice of Brazilian Cheesecake with any Lunch or Dinner.

EILEEN’S SPECIAL CHEESECAKE - New York, New York ½ off any one cheesecake purchased.

So whether you like plain, or covered in whipped cream, or fruit today is a great excuse to enjoy some creamy, decadent dessert.

Now, I’ve made myself hungry….I’m going to find a slice!
