Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Item:  A couple of weeks ago, the Bennigan’s Grill & Tavern chain began offering its menus in Spanish:

The new menus, which were placed in the chain’s 310 restaurants last month and are available upon request, have been well-received, a company executive said Monday.
“Hispanics purchase a meal outside of their home as many as four times a week, and we don’t want language to be a barrier,” Jennifer Gamble, Bennigan’s director of marketing, said in a statement. “This Spanish menu gives our servers that option when they need it.”

Apparently the menus weren’t that  well-received – Bennigan’s shut its doors after filing for Chapter 7 yesterday.

Hmmm.  Might not have been a good idea to pony up for those Spanish menus, eh guys? 

Justice.  Buford.  T.  Justice.

(Now, this is not to trivialize the plight of those employees hit hard by the resulting layoffs, nor to laugh at their misfortune.  You guys know me better than that.

It is  to point out that karma’s a real bitch to moronic bastards who try and kowtow to the illegal-alien community.  Maybe sooner, maybe later – but there will  be a reckoning, eventually.)

    I believe I saw this on FARK….the comment was “prolly cause the employees didn’t show enough ‘flair’”.

    This is a bummer for me too, I liked Bennigan’s better than Chili’s, or TGIFriday’s.

    Although, watch closely because Chili’s and Applebee’s are owned by the same parent company. (I also think Macaroni Grill is too, would have to check on that again)

    If Bennigan’s had the same poor service offered by our local Applebee’s, it is no wonder they went out of business.
