In the early 70s, before it was just a depressing place to eat Guy Fieri-themed burgers with your coworkers, T.G.I. Friday's was actually a popular hangout for the hip crowd, at least in Memphis. A photo shot by William Eggleston on the back of Big Star's second album Radio City shows Jody Stephens, Andy Hummel and Alex Chilton partying down at the former Overton Square location.

The original T.G.I. Friday's was located in New York, but it was first franchised at this spot in Memphis in 1970 where it stayed until 2003.
