    Good one.

    This looks very troubling for TGI Friday's, in that there are so many of their restaurants involved. It would indicate that the practice goes beyond a rogue restaurant manager, and would seem to suggest that people up the corporate chain knew of it, and probably encouraged it.

    I believe that's what they did, quickest way to age whisky is with a funnel.

    Stick with the regular tequila instead of the "premium".

    The latest news report says one of the bars served a Scotch that was made up from rubbing alcohol and caramel flavor/coloring.
