TGI Fridays the 13th feat. Sandy, Steven, & Herbert

In this episode of "Fine" Dining: The Search for the Most Mediocre Restaurant in America:

○ TGI Fridays is dark, red, and honestly feels like a murder room. Appropriate for the season

○ Michael is joined by friend Sandy Rose to deliver the Resty Fact Round-Up while Garrett goes to town on Michael's bidet. Learn how TGI Fridays original incarnation was drastically different from what we know it as today

○ Michael's pineapple son Juicy Jr. dons the mask as Juice-Son Vorhees in a terrifying murder spree homage to the Friday the 13th horror film franchise

○ JUB issues an ominous warning

○ Frequent dining companion Herbert Amaya goes to check on the suspicious boat on the ceiling while Michael & Garrett speculate What's Going On Over There?

○ Garrett breaks the injunction and orders another Cinnabon-branded dessert

○ Cheese correspondent Steven Zurita is a big fan of cheese

The death of a cohost...

○ Hear what others are saying about this TGI Fridays location in this week's Yelp from Strangers
