Caity Weaver recently went to a TGI Friday’s when it opened and sat there until it closed, eating all-you-can-eat mozzarella sticks for $10. Her story is very funny, though, from personal experience, the best reason to go to TGI Friday’s is for their 2-for-1 drink specials. The last time I was there I got two scotches for $5! What a deal.

This week’s open thread is an update to last week’s open thread about the startup that wanted you to pay $15 to have $10 worth of quarters delivered to you.
Whelp, Sam Biddle reports that the startup, which had fewer than 10 customers as of last week, is dead. Here’s their email to subscribers:
We had a blast working on Washboard but we have decided to shut down the service.
You’re receiving this email because you were a subscriber of our recently launched quarter delivery service that launched June 19th. We really do want to thank you for being one of the ones that believed in us. We launched this service because we had the same problem you do which is why we do feel bad for presenting you with a service and taking it away so quickly but we are excited to be focusing our energy on something ultimately more worthwhile.
Back to the bank!
