T.G.I. Friday's is bringing in the world's end like no one else can, inviting revelers to to celebrate all over the country on Friday, December 21st – the date predicted on the Mayan calendar to mark the end of the world as we know it. Friday's plans to “party like there's no tomorrow” with Mayan-inspired "Last Friday" celebrations in select cities such as Los Angeles and Miami.
Friday's apparently felt it had an obligation to pay attention to the prediction and certainly to celebrate the possible end of civilization.
"When I thought about the potential end of the world, on a Friday no less, I knew we had to do something about it," said Nick Shepherd, CEO of Carlson Restaurants. "Whether this really is the end of the world, or just the beginning of the weekend, our guests know they can always count on us to get the party started. We don't know what is going to happen, so we might as well live it up and embrace that Friday feeling, even if it is just one last time."
