REASONS TGIFRIDAYS IS THE BEST RESTAURANT CHAIN AROUND
Disclaimer*** This should be read through the lens of 2005-2009 TGI Fridays. But hey, we can depend on chains to make it all feel familiar anyways!
- •All that crazy shit on the walls and ceilings are there for a reason 📸 From a real Tiffany's lamp to empty bottles of Champagne to a full-size Scull. The staff is trained to know what and why these artifacts are bolted, superglued, spit-taken on.
- •The Cobb Salad 🍽 I really dig Cobb salads, my love for them gets meta. I don't know what I liked more about my experience serving this thing (aside from serving myself one); the fact that the TGIF Cobb is larger than the size of a 9 pound newborn child or that the oldest men would come in for lunch and have a Rusty Nail with their goddamn Cobb.
- •"OMG, that's, like, the place where they have the flair stuff, right?" 🚦 Yes, it is. In retrospect, earning a pin as an employee working up the ranks was competitive and rewarding. Especially earning the bartender pin (🍸), real classy and real proud. It's a hard pin to earn, hyperbole aside. It kills me to admit I've misplaced nearly all of mine.
- •The Screaming Orgasm, L.A. Water, Lava Flow, Blue Lagoon, Hairy Navel, Sex On The Beach, Pinnacle, Cement Mixer, Tennessee Iced Tea, and, of course, the Mat shot.
