TGI FRIDAY'S -- BAIT AND SWITCH RIP-OFF

I got the "stripes" card. I got the promo e-mails. This one was pushing a Fat Tuesday special, and promised half-price appetizers and drink specials.
Friday's is a bit pricy for what you get, so it's absolutely essential for them to run specials all the time. But previous events always left me feeling a little used, so I decided that one more try was all they deserved.
Didn't get no "free" beads, and nothing was said about my mask. But that was no big deal. I really went for the grub and some suds, and because they have smoking. If the promo was another TGI Friday's come-on, at least I might get a break during happy hour (although the menu and signage only leaves one guessing when happy hour really is). The e-mail said this event was from 4pm until closing, with no hint of any black-outs or other exclusions or disqualifications. I was there from about 6.30 to 8pm.
When it was all over and I got my bill, I tried to make sense out of it. Nothing was itemized, and the bartender only said that beers were $3 during happy hour and $4 otherwise, leaving "happy hour" still as elusive as ever.
My final conclusion was that I paid no less than full price for everything I ordered. It didn't add up any other possible way. So I am retiring my "stripes" card and unsubscribing from TGI Friday's bait and switch list. If they ever want me back, I'm going to have to see some big changes.
