- We spent six hours at Red Lobster, eating as many shrimp as we possibly could to celebrate Shrimpsgiving 2018.
- We consumed 350 shrimp as part of the chain’s Endless Shrimp deal, our third year in a row stuffing ourselves with shrimp for hours.
- But, as the hours rolled on, we realized — we’ll never shrimp again. Here’s why.
It was Endless Shrimp.
For three years, we have consumed the pink jewels of the ocean. For three years, we have spent one long day gorging ourselves, striving to meet new goals and best our shrimpy limits. And, for three years, we have succeeded.
But this year, it wasn’t easy.
We ventured to Red Lobster for our annual Endless Shrimp outing two months ago. This year, unlike years past, we struggled to keep the holiday spirit in our hearts at Shrimpsgiving and in the weeks that followed. Against the backdrop of our familiar booth and all-too-familiar Mumford & Sons soundtrack, we craved… change.
Let us take you on a journey that we have gone on before. But this time, it is the same, yet so different:
The familiar intersection: the corner of 7th Avenue and 41st Street, a spot we rarely visit except to pay tribute on Shrimpsgiving.
The red lobster himself loomed above, seemingly saying, „Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.“
And for another year, Endless Shrimp was resurrected, a shrimpy Lazarus.
