Thank Goodness It's Friday

I haven't eaten at TGI Fridays many times, but I have eaten at this one once. I went to this fine dinning establishment the day my husband was sworn into the Fire Department.
It was my first night during my marriage of having to be alone at night and I was really sad about it (I did not liked what I had gotten myself into, but don't worry I kinda enjoy it now).
After his ceremony I drove home and cried a little and then ate myself silly at this very TGI Fridays.
Well, last Sunday it burned.
We saw the smoke from the freeway on our way home and we couldn't help but stop and look.
At the time I had totally forgotten about that night I spent alone here but it came back to me as I looked at these pictures tonight.
So goodbye full order of boneless wings.
Goodbye big hamburger.
And goodbye 2 (yes I ate 2 that night) desserts.
Thanks for healing my wounded heart on Dec 6, 2005...
I'll miss what we once had.

I can't say I'll be sad to see a Friday's bite the dust, although I wish it was an Applebee's even more. But I can totally relate to binge nostalgia. I have it with most food establishments in our town.

We were driving home late that night and saw the smoke and even the flames from the 10. I had no idea what was burning though! Bummer!
Oh, and that IS the CUTEST baby bikini ever!

TGI-NASTY. Im sorry and a little relieved that the flare loving chain bit the dust.Maybe your commitment to a healthier lifestyle and the destruction of a bingy place is just what the Universe ordered.Sorry TGI Disgusto-its no more cheese covered steak for you.
