Who needs a main course when there's all-you-can appetizers ...

    TGIFriday's trying all-you-can eat appetizers this summer. Wonder how many people will skip the main course and just gorge on an appetizer.

    Gawker's Hamilton Nolan seems like a gigantic asshole, but the dude has a delightfully acid tongue.

    I'd quibble with a couple of things in that piece: a pan-seared pot sticker does not equal a fried noodle pocket.

    And the people they are trying to draw in with all-you-can-eat appetizers at a TGIF are people who know they are not going to a "good" restaurant. Loaded potato skins at a TGIF is not good food? No shit.

    Seems he's determined to use a shotgun to kill a fly. And to prove he's the biggest asshole in whatever room he currently is in.

    I'm sure TGIF has tried the 2-for-$20 meal deals and all the other menu juggling acts, now it's time for a good gluttony play. Probably will work for a while as people suck down overpriced frou-frou drinks with their mountain of mozzarella sticks. Then at some point they're remember how they feel six hours after eating a mountain of mozzarella sticks, and TGIF will go back to the drawing board.

    Take a closer look, too. You get one appetizer. At $10 a pop, you'd better like your boneless buffalo wings.

    I haven't darkened the door of a TGI Friday's in about 10 years, but at $10 it sounds like a good place to warm up for a night out.

    The boneless wings do sound like the most substantial of the selections. I can polish off a couple of dozen, no problem.

    Have you ever known anybody besides oop who would go to a TGI Friday's alone?

    Is there anything more American than us taking the beloved tapas of Spain and replacing it with all-you-can-eat potato bacon bombers?
