@eslashe tweets us this link from Craigslist LET ME FEED YOU POTATO SKINS (TGI Friday’s Foggy Bottom):

“Over the last month, we’ve all gotten used to standing around with strangers in bars after work, sharing in the spectacle of the World Cup, and bonding over our shared love of friendly competition and Michael Ballack.

But after this weekend, what will we do now to become friends with strangers? How can we keep these collective good vibes rolling? I don’t care what your skinny friend says: We’re not going to get excited about the Tour de France, even if they start showing it on all the screens at the Big Hunt.

I suggest we look to ourselves. I suggest we look to America. I suggest we share Endless Appetizers at TGI Friday’s.

This Monday, July 14, let’s say around 6-ish, let’s all go to the Foggy Bottom TGI Friday’s.

We will order one plate of Loaded Potato Skins. We will order no other solid foods, because this plate will be endless. You will order beer. I will order a whiskey soda. An intern in a dress will order white wine. Someone will order a frozen rita and feel regret.

You, me, and dozens of our best friends, sharing one order of food THAT I WILL PAY FOR, all night long. Ten dollars American, feeding the masses.

It’s a bit like Jesus, isn’t it? No surprise there. Because this is America.”

Noteworthy passage:

Fridays will respect whatever tack customers take — even if it bends the rules of the promotion. “No one should be embarrassed for coming into Fridays and ordering whatever they want to order,” he says. “They will not be bawled out. There will be no policing or hand-slapping.”
