Once upon a time, not too long ago, there was a large segment of the population who worked hard all week. When the workweek came to an end, they looked up to the sky, exclaimed “Thank God It’s Friday”, and promptly headed for the neighborhood bar. Once there, they enjoyed a drink or two, some snacks provided by the bartender, and conversation with their friends, co-workers, and even total strangers. After an hour or two, everyone headed for home, out to dinner, or a weekend getaway. Life was good. Unfortunately, everything comes to an end. As they grew older, they started devoting more and more time to attending Little League games, soccer games, dance recitals, etc., and found that they now had little time for celebrating Fridays. Eventually, they stopped going altogether. We now jump forward with our story to 2001, when a few of these former partyers, now happily retired in Laguna Woods Village, started reminiscing about those Fridays of long ago, and, with great foresight, decided to recreate them. TGIF was born sometime in March (no one is quite sure of the date, but it was sometime around St. Patrick’s Day) of 2001. The organizers were expecting 50 to 100 people to show up, if that. When upward of 500 showed up and they had to turn many away, they knew they had something good.
