Carrollton, Texas | February 15, 2010

T.G.I. Friday's restaurants today announced it will feature half-price appetizers and new drinks tomorrow for its Mardi Gras party at participating restaurants in the U.S.


"We're T.G.I. Friday's so it's always a party but on Fat Tuesday, we'll turn up the music a little louder and keep the party going a little longer because Mardi Gras is one of the craziest parties of the year and as always, we are your party headquarters," said John Neitzel, president and chief operating officer of T.G.I. Friday's USA. "At 4 p.m. local time tomorrow, our restaurants across the U.S. will be rockin' with the excitement and atmosphere of a New Orleans parade. Be sure to check with your local Friday's to see what they have planned for your party."

In keeping with its heritage and legacy of beverage innovation, T.G.I. Friday's also developed and will feature the following specialty drinks for the Mardi Gras Party:

SoCo Hurricane - Southern Comfort mixed with our own hurricane mix, topped off with a splash of orange juice. (Very classic using SoCo which is from The French Quarter).

Bacardi Passion Splash - Bacardi Rum and Tuaca mixed with passion fruit puree, and fresh lime and cranberry juice

Members of T.G.I. Friday's Give Me More Stripes® guest recognition program (www.givememorestripes.com) will receive double stripes on food purchases all day long.
