T.G.I. Friday's App Gives You a Free Appetizer, Tips From the Bartender

According to T.G.I. Friday's, one good app deserves another, and a tip for your bartender deserves one in return.

That's what we discovered when we downloaded the T.G.I. Friday's app, available for iPhone and Android phones.

Not only does the app have some standard features, like a GPS locator that tells you the closest Friday's to wherever you are, but there are some nifty features we played around with.

Here's what we found:

Peruse the cocktail menu. The tiki torch features Avion tequila, triple sec, fresh pineapple, chipotle pineapple, fresh lime, and a sweet and spicy salt rim. 

Your electronic barkeep gives you sage wisdom like "leave knife tricks to the pros" and "the best pickup line is 'hi my name is.'"

One good app deserves another. Get an instant free coupon good for a free appetizer, and just show the screen to your server.

Pay for your meal with your phone using the virtual tab. Just enter your credit card information once and pay at any Friday's with your smartphone.
