T.G.I. Friday’s Really Isn’t Taking This Mayan Prophecy Thing Seriously

T.G.I. Friday’s Really Isn’t Taking This Mayan Prophecy Thing Seriously

Last week, T.G.I. Friday's unveiled their special apocalypse menu, dubbed "the Last Friday," featuring a Pop Rocks–rimmed margarita and a predictable array of Jack Daniel's–addled steaks and cake. The chain has even posted a doom-mongering ad with flashing Mayan imagery and Carlson Restaurants' Nick Shepherd proffering a jumbo martini. ("I'm no Nostradamus," he says.) The only family-friendly dining experience we'd like to endure during an actual apocalypse, however, is the chipper one at Friday's clone Frendsy's in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Also, Friday's wouldn't have just applied for a liquor license in the old Rosie O' Grady's space for a new restaurant in an already saturated market if they really wanted us to think it was all about to end. Or would they? [SLA, Earlier]
