It’s National Selfie Day, a day that has been a social media thing every June 21 since 2014. If you use the right hashtag Thursday, you could score a free cocktail or beer at several Kimpton hotels in Southern California.

Each hotel has a slightly different twist on what you get if you play along and post on social media with the hashtag #SoCalKimptonSelfie. You have to be a hotel or restaurant guest to receive the freebie that’s good Thursday only.

The Shorebreak in Huntington Beach will give hotel guests and diners at the Pacific Hideaway restaurant on the Huntington Beach Pier a free shot of liquor when they post a selfie taken at the Frida mural (in honor of Frida Kahlo).

And a social media post from the rooftop pool or guest room at Canary in Santa Barbara will get you an extra wine pour at check-in.

According to its website, National Selfie Day was started by DJ Rick McNeely from Arlington, Texas.
