I go to UCSB and am completely in love with Freebirds! I hope you enjoyed Santa Barbara! The beaches, shopping, and beautiful surroundings are so wonderful! Next time you're in Santa Barbara try La Super Rica. It's a complete hole in the wall, but it has fabulous Mexican food that can rival Freebirds. Happy birthday!
