Houlihan's commercials - I dont get it

Don't bogart the shrimp!

What's that supposed to mean. These commercials do not make me want to eat at this restaurant. I just don't get them and they annoy me. Maybe I'm just not a hip city dweller. Explain please.

Oh yeah, you can't go wrong with that place for a date. 2+ years in though, it's a little trendy. I like it, but they don't have much in the way of 'normal' food.

I edited my first post to praise that spinach/artichoke dip though. Yummy in my tummy

Did you just say "yummy in my tummy"? You must like a side order of cock with your spinach and artichoke dip.

I just cracked my first PBR of the night. My fucking refrigerator blew a fuse and went warm inside so all my beer cans smell like stinky meat.

What also bothers me about their commercials is that I sit through one of them. View a different commercial - AND THEN ANOTHER HOULIHAN'S COMMERCIAL COMES ON!! Every time.

Not sure if this ever got on the regular menu, but for a while they had a dessert on their "test kitchen" section of the menu. It was a s'mores fondue. They give you graham crackers and a tub of melted marshmallow and another tub of melted chocolate ganache, and you could dip the crackers to your heart's content.

Unfortunately, I discovered this culinary masterpiece at about 8 weeks pregnant, when that "eat everything in sight" hormone is activated.
