CARROLLTON, Texas, Feb. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The place: a social hub. The drink: wine. The mood: engaging. Welcome to TGI Fridays™ for Valentine's Week. With half-priced bottles of wine now through February 14, matched with a fun atmosphere and fare to please every palate, whether you're taken or lookin' Fridays is the social destination to set the right mood.

When Fridays polled consumers to find out how they celebrate the lovers' holiday, the national survey found that most people (55%) say wine puts them in a good mood and those people are more likely to meet a partner in a bar or social setting. For those who are single and don't celebrate Valentine's Day (35%), don't be a snooze fest - grab your girl squad and get your half-priced drink on at Fridays.

"We know people enjoy getting together and meeting over drinks," said Brian Gies, Chief Marketing Officer, TGI Fridays. "Fridays is ready to help keep both the party and the romance going all week long with socializing over half-priced bottles of wine."

In addition to half-priced wine this week, check out how Fridays is sharing the virtual love on social:

  • D-T-R (Define the Relationship): Regardless of your relationship status, Fridays is encouraging guys and girls to again join the debate this Valentine's Day. People – Taken or Lookin' – can cast their vote to showcase who is happier: #TGImTaken or #TGImLookin, encouraging everyone to weigh in on who they plan to hang with and how they plan to celebrate.

Grab your significant other or BFFs and come to @TGIFridays to celebrate Valentine's all week long.
