Tamagotchis, cassette tapes, rubiks cubes, and other items reminsicent of the decade  embellished the venue to showcase the 90s feel. The photo wall, meanwhile, was a mix of everything symbolic of the decade’s pop culture. Guests were requested to come in swinging 90s garb or in red and white stripes, the colors of Fridays.

For 25 years, TGIFridays has been part of  countless birthday celebrations, with its staff  participating with upbeat songs for the birthday celebrants. This time, it was TGIFridays’ turn to throw its own birthday party on one  memorable night.

Vibrant host Candy Gamos led the pulsating party that commenced with a  25th Anniversary AVP that showcased all ‘Fridays Believers’ – customers, partners, and friends who shared wonderful TGIFridays memories.

Cheers to 25 Years!

A party wouldn’t be complete without a birthday cake. So as the whole venue lit up, a special cake was rolled in and candles were blown!  At that instant, the TGIFridays staff and crew sang the special “Fridays birthday song” together with the crowd. 

As soon as the last confetti dropped, guests were treated to  a flairtending exhibition and a performance by stand-up comedian, Alex Calleja.
