c. 1970. 28 x 21.5 cm. Menu in a spiral bound faux-notebook. Alan Stillman was a salesman living on Manhattan's Upper East Side in the mid-1960s. Aware that many young people in the neighborhood needed more places to hangout, he took a lease on a rundown bar on First Avenue and 63rd Street with $5,000 borrowed from his mother and opened one of the first singles bars, which he called T.G.I. Friday's. Stillman opened, with partners, about a dozen other Friday's in other cities as well as several Manhattan restaurants with names such as Tuesday's, Wednesday's, and Thursday's. In the mid-1970s he sold his share of the Friday's chain (an act he later described as his biggest mistake), reportedly for $1 million, to Carlson Companies - keeping the original bar, and then selling this for a reported $3.8 million. This menu has pop-art ink drawings along with menu offerings. Gold, red, and silver stars pasted throughout. Some items on the menu include; Onion Soup, Chicken Wingies, Hot Chili, Steak Salad, Friday Burger, Tuesday Burger, Western Burger, Blue Burger, Barbecued Spare Ribs, Club Sandwich, New York Sirloin Steaks, and Deep-fried Apple Rings. Black and white marbled wraps. Very good. Spiral bound wraps.
