The other problem, Muller says, is the guests who will try to take unfair advantage of the promotion.

"The risk comes when a crowd of six, or more, decides to get together and pool their resources, all ordering one item and sharing," he says. "Then it is easy to predict that everyone will order at least six refills each, with plates being passed around."

I have a feeling they will be dealing with a LOT of that. . .

You aren't missing much. It is a restaurant/bar for hip singles.

That's funny......my group of mostly old ladies (not me lol) go there often for lunch. $10.00 for unlimited appetizers would not be on anybody's want list in my group.

+1, Kayelle. Glenn and I love Fridays and we're far from 40.

It's an interesting concept and it will be fascinating to see how it plays out for them. Might be a plus for the after work and weekend night crowd.

+2. A family member is having chemo in a hospital near a TGIF down in the city. It's the closest place to go other than a fast food place. They've been really good about accommodating large groups of family with little kids. Maybe the single nightlife is another thing and they have a separate area.

I have been to Fridays twice. It was when they had just took up with the J. Daniels to use in their recipes. Now I don't drink, never had a drink in my life. So when I eat anything with alcohol in it, I can taste the alcohol immediately. And I spit it out. I try to do it ladylike, after all spitting out food in a restaurant when you are with other people, can be gross no matter how hard you try.

Then my grandson was dating a girl that worked there. She brought home a menu and just about every item had J. Daniels in the dish. That is when I decided to put Friday's on my no, no list. And that's to bad, because I really liked the place.

When I was flying all over the U.S. on company business I'd often just order a deluxe appetizer for dinner. Usually, that was enough to fill me up and then some.

I don't think that means it's just a place for hip young singles. Many adults enjoy having wine or liquor as ingredients in food.
