I don't like chains, but this is a nice drink special

brown cow meltdownbrown cow meltdownCheck it out: form 9 p.m. until close, T.G.I. Fridays is serving $2 domestic beers, $3 imports and $4 cocktails. The kitchen is open late, too.

I'm not a big fan of chains (in fact, I avoid them whenever possible), but if I lived in the suburbs and wanted to wet my whistle without draining my wallet, I'd hit up T.G.I. Fridays.

Pictured is the Brown Cow Meltdown, a delicious-looking concoction that T.G.I. Fridays serves.

At least, they served it back in 2000 when this photo was taken. I read the article that ran with the photo and was shocked to discover the Brown Cow Meltdown is a non-alcoholic drink ...

Here's how to make it:

Swirl a Collins glass with chocolate syrup and add cubed ice.

Fill glass with 1 part milk and 2 parts Coca-Cola.

Spear 2 cherries onto a sword pick, hang on glass rim and drizzle chocolate over the cherries into the drink.

Non alcoholic...

but wait, what about adding some rum?

The T.G.I.'s in Towson is always packed on weekends and is one of the few chain bars that actually kind of feels like a bar.

Pat, now that sounds like a plan.

bcplanning, I'm not surprised. Does it have a U-shaped bar? That's one of the only things I like about chains. U-shaped bars rock.
