Subject: Re: POETS day

Isn't this expression what the Poets restaurant chain is referring to? I

had always assumed that the name of the restaurant was a take-off on

Fridays, a similar kind of restaurant that appeared shortly before Poets

did. Now that I think about it, I'm not positive that Poets is a chain.

But I assumed when it opened in Jackson (MS) fifteen or twenty years ago

that the name was an answer to Fridays, the chain that is really named

TGIFriday, I think. Fridays may be a regional chain, of course.

That's interesting.

I am familiar with Fridays,

or TGIFriday('s?), but not Poets.
