In a move sure to set the culinary world and classy guys everywhere reeling, Darden has announced that it will either sell or spin off its Red Lobster restaurants.
Adding to the devastation, the company, which also runs Olive Garden and other fine-dining establishments, said it will suspend the opening of new Olive Garden locations and slow down new locations for LongHorn Steakhouses
So I'm assuming this means:
1) They're going to sell them to another company, in which the new company will keep the name and everything will be the same.
2) They're going to sell to another company, in which the new company will fuck some shit up.
3) Red Lobby's going to close.
Can we sacrifice Olive Garden? I want to sacrifice Olive Garden. I need my Cheddar Bay Biscuits, Stuffed Mushrooms, and Shrimp Scampi.
