TGI Fridays Now Lets You Make Reservations Through Facebook Messenger


TGI Fridays is dipping their toes into the world of tech and social media to make dinner a heck of a lot more convenient for patrons. In a new partnership with Conversable, the restaurant chain will now allow guests to reserve a spot at the restaurant through Facebook Messenger.

The restaurant says this will be a first for the industry.

Fridays’ customers can interact with the restaurant 24/7 starting now through Facebook Messenger. Along with making reservations at select restaurants, they can also ask questions about the chain and use Messenger to find local TGI Fridays locations.

Conversable is a conversational platform that provides users with automated one-on-one response flows through message channels. By Fall, the company will allow guests to order food online and get delivery through social media.

This will definitely come in handy on Saturday nights. We hate waiting for tables when there’s so much food to be eaten.


TGI Friday’s Does a Rib Flight Trio, Lets You Pick and Choose


TGI Friday’s are offering customers a taste of their ribs without forcing them to commit to a single flavor. In their Rib Flight Trio, patrons can order three different flavors of ribs from TGIF’s existing flavor base. We wrote about the Bacon-crusted ribs a while back and it looks like they’ll be featured as a choice.

Customers can choose between Chipotle Smoked BBQ, sweet Memphis Rub, Applewood Bacon Crust, Tennessee BBQ or Jack Daniel’s. Each flavor will arrive in sets of two and will also come with seasoned fries and a ginger-lime coleslaw.

The Rib Flight Trio special will be available for $10 at all participating TGI Friday’s locations. However, the special will only be applicable to dine-in customers.

TGI Friday’s has been pretty generous with their $1 offerings as of late. Many may remember the restaurant chain offered a variety of endless appetizers, also for $10.


The 23 Most Ridiculous Food Lyrics from Kanye West


Kanye West has been called a genius numerous times. Granted, it’s usually just him saying it, but it does takes a special kind of artist to put together so many food references in his lyrics throughout the years. He’s at a point in his career where anything he says can be turned into an inspirational quote worthy of Pinterest/Tumblr/Instagram. That’s how genius works, right? From his affinity for Klondike bars to the nostalgic description of his mother’s chicken soup, Kanye finds masterful ways to incorporate food into his beautiful music.

Maybe he writes some of his best stuff in his kitchen, or at a restaurant, regardless, here’s 23 of Kanye West’s tastiest food references.



In 2008 Kanye teamed up With Lil Wayne for the Lollipop remix and graced us with this double entendre that almost solidified his genius with one verse alone. Nacho cheese has never felt so complex.



Kanye didn’t stop there. The very next line in the Lollipop remix gave us another chip classic, this time using Fritos.



Kanye showed his versatility in this one as he dropped some French on us. Not only did he tap into our food fantasies, but dropped a literature reference. Some said it couldn’t be done, but Kanye can do anything.



Keeping with the French theme, Kanye jumped on the Alors on Danse remix and talked about filet mignon. Unnecessary? Maybe. Awesome? Always.


Kanye is known to ask the hard-hitting life questions. He’s somewhat of a philosopher in his own right, kind of. In this verse, he put a spin on the age-old Klondike question.



In this verse, Kanye kind of answered his own question from the last quote. He’d do anything.



In this one, Yeezy showed one of his innovative uses for Cool Whip.



In one of his more serious songs, this one really showed a nostalgic West as he honored his mom’s home cooking.



Yeezus showed some pretty classic foodie alternatives to jewelry in this one.



This one was in retaliation to a classic South Park episode where Yeezy was compared to a “gay fish.”



Yeezus has hundreds of libation references in his music, as most rap artists do, but here he displayed a special ability to rhyme, “vodka” with “blocka, blocka, blocka, blocka.”


This one is a bit painful if you’re a fan of cake. Having to leave a party early before the cake is cut is brutal, twice as brutal if there’s Rocky Road ice cream served with it.



Yeezus showed his God-like rhyming as he let out his wrath on a lowly French server in this one.



A tribute to one of the most dominant duos in basketball history. Unfortunately, he brought up the break up portion of the duo’s relationship.



This verse is probably close to Kanye’s heart, as he talked about it being one of the lines that got him noticed as a rapper and not just a producer. The power of food.



‘Ye took Lawry’s to the mainstream with this one and started a rap style that took off with rappers like Drake and Lil Wayne.



This is one of the simpler workout tips Kanye gives in this song.



Kanye teamed up with Jay-Z in this song and asked him these rhetorical questions that he clearly knew the answers to.



It takes true genius to to care about lowering your cholesterol.


Yeezy sure does know what to do with those extra sweet and sour packets that McDonald’s… oh wait, they never give anyone enough sweet and sour sauce.



We get three food references in this one as Kanye sadly describes the time in his life he broke his jaw in an accident and couldn’t enjoy food. If you’ve had braces, you can feel his pain. Sort of.



Wait, KFC has a buffet?



Yeah. This is Kanye’s music in a nutshell.


So there you have it. If you don’t feel inspired to eat something delicious after this, there’s something wrong with you. Go bake yourself a cake and call it genius.
