"Escape to Margaritaville" CD @ TGI Fridays

Post by silverbetty » July 20, 2006 3:06 pm

A few times now I heard mention of a CD offered by TGI Fridays on Radio Margaritaville. I contacted TGI Fridays through their coporate web site. They replied via email and phone message. They said that a CD would be out soon. They couldn't give me an exact date for the locations in my area. I wanted to see if anyone has found this CD yet. I think it was called "Escape to Margaritaville".

Fins Up!

PS - I searched and searched but nothing came back. If there is a thread already please point me in the right direction.

This is the first I've heard of it! I'm too technologically challenges to listen to RM much.

Anyway, I'm a fan of Fridays, and look forward to seeing what's on the cd! :D

I am a fan of theirs once a year when one of the sales team gives away gift cards for TGI Friday's
When they run you out of town make it look like you are leading the parade.

I finally got my hands on this CD. Many thanks to Miles Hampton of Radio Margaritaville for putting me in the right direction. This promotion was for New York area TGI Friday restaurants managed by The Riese Organization. I contacted them after hearing from Miles. A few managers of TGI Fridays in New York got in touch with me and told me they were out of the CD. I even stopped into a restaurant when I was in NYC for the MSG show. No luck. I sort of gave up after a few months of searching. The day I got back from NYC there was an email from a representative from The Riese Organization. She said she had a copy of the CD and would send it to me. So today it arrived!

The two tracks include Margaritaville, the Spanish version, and Tequila.

Is that the same one that was issued with the purchase of bottles of Margaritaville Tequila a couple years ago?
If so, I have it. If not, I need to go "hunting."

Thanks, same songs are on this one. There are in a flash movie though, so it took some time to get them into MP3 format.

Ah, a fellow Baltimore parrothead. Yeah, I called around and no one in our area had a clue what I was talking about. I would pass the contact I got it from, but she said it was her last copy.
