Applebee’s Just Doesn’t Measure Up.

Backstory: My mom LOVED Bennigans. We would go to Bennigans for any and all occasions. Since she heard that they went bankrupt and would be closing nationally, she has been completely devastated. It is all she can talk about, even on my 21st birthday!

Happy Happy Birthday to you on this special day

Happy Happy Birthday that’s all I have to say

Happy Happy Birthday may all your dreams come true

Happy Happy Birthday from Mommy to you

Benningans RIP 2008

      Is this the same mom as the previous Bennigan’s email, or are there moms in mourning all over the U.S.?

      Having never personally been to a Bennigans, what was the attraction?

      Not all chains have a universal birthday song… I have worked at a couple of different outback’s and the songs were different – one of them doesn’t even sing Happy Birthday, they just give you free dessert!

      I’m a former (long ago) Bennigan’s employee and I actually once was reprimanded for not singing the birthday song w/ enough pep and energy!
