8月14日金曜日、同僚と『ＴＧＩフライデーズ』でランチしました。ＬＮさんの誕生日が翌日だったため。"TGI F"と言えば、"Thank God It's Friday."（今日は花金だ～）の略語です。
On Friday, Aug.14, 2009, we went to "T.G.I. FRIDAY'S" for lunch to celebrate my coworker LN's birtday. Her birthday is Aug.15, 2009. "TGIF" is often used. It means "Thank God It's Friday." レストランの入り口。池と滝があります。
Entrance of the restaurant. There are a pond and water falls.
We got seated at a nice table in the back by the window. Here is a patio view from the window.
Bread Sticks It was freshly baked, warm, soft, and good.
Broccoli & Cheese Soup 3 out of 5 of us ordered "Endless Soup, Salad, & Drink Deal"$6.99. You get to have 2nds, 3rds, and 4th.... Soup avaialbe that day was Basil & Tomato, Clam Chowder, French Onion, Broccoli & Cheese, and Chicken Noodle Soup.
HALF–RACK BABY RACK RIBS$7.95 A half–rack of tender baby back pork ribs fire–grilled, glazed with JackTM BBQ Sauce from the Grand Champion of the Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational BarbequeTM. Topped with onion rings, served with fries and a side of barbecue sauce. I ordered this. It was pretty good.
We Asked, "We are here for a birthday. Do you have something (free) for birthday dessert?" All waiters and waitresses gathered and sang a birthday song for my coworker LN during the busy lunch time and served the Ice Cream Sundae above. THANK YOU!
We used "BYOB $5 Off Coupon". "BYOB" stands for "Bring Your Own Buddy." If you bring your buddies, each buddy on the same table will get $5 discount. So, if you bring 3 buddies, your table will get $15 discount. It does not apply to "Kids Meal" and "Endless Soup, Salad, Drink" deal that 3 out of 5 of us ordered this time. The coupon is valid until 8/31/2009, end of this month. There are many locations throughout USA.
