HOOTERS! delightfully tacky, yet unrefined

And I always thought it was a fun-filled-family resturant, what is this world coming to ;)


-------------------------------------
Hooters restaurant comes under fire from conservatives in Arlington, Texas
Canadian Press - Thursday March 7, 2002


That prompted residents to form a group called Decency for Arlington and obtain more than 1,300 signatures to derail the restaurant's beer licence application. Hooters sued after being denied a permit and is waiting on a judge's decision on its appeal to get a licence.

The inaugural lunch crowd Wednesday included some local firefighters whose T-shirts read Mr. Zedler, I Am Not A Sexual Predator.

Bill Zedler, a Republican state representative candidate, formed Decency for Arlington last summer to keep the new Hooters from opening in a shopping area in a heavily residential district. The group has said Hooters' atmosphere could corrupt students at the nearby high school - and attract sex offenders.

"I wouldn't want my wife to go to (the nearby drug store) to fill a prescription late at night because of the kind of men she might run into in the parking lot," said Barry Johnson, the group's co-chairman.

Opposition is nothing new to the restaurant chain, founded in Florida in 1983 with the motto "delightfully tacky, yet unrefined."

In fact, a Hooters in Frisco was besieged by protests in 2000 after it offered free beer for a few weeks until its beer licence was approved. The eatery now has more customers on "kids eat free" Saturdays than any other Hooters in Texas.

Texas Wings runs 27 Hooters restaurants in the state, including another one in Arlington, the state's seventh-largest city with more than 330,000 residents.

Hooters of America Inc. in Atlanta doesn't deny that sex appeal is part of the gimmick of its 300-plus restaurants countrywide, but Wilkinson said the eatery has "cleaned up" its image in recent years by catering to families and sponsoring community little-league teams.

"When you compare Hooters to what people see at swimming pools, sporting events with cheerleaders and magazine racks at any grocery store - give me a break," Wilkinson said.

I’m just wondering what these “late night prescriptions” are, that his wife has to go get?



BTW I got kicked out of Hooters before. Lucky for me they have a heavy rotation of waitresses.

More importantly, FREE BEER!!!

ARLINGTON, Texas — Free beer flowed at a new Hooters restaurant that opened despite opposition from residents who fear its scantily clad waitresses will corrupt the youth and attract sexual predators.

Although it doesn't have a permit to sell beer, the new Hooters in Arlington made sure its opening wasn't a bust by offering up to two free beers to customers over 21 on Wednesday. The eatery can give away all the beer it wants without a license, but can't sell it.

"We have a right to be here, and we're not going away," said Scott Wilkinson, vice president of Texas Wings, the franchise that runs 27 Hooters restaurants in Texas.

The Hooters brouhaha started last year when the national chain famous for waitresses clad in low-cut tank tops and tight shorts announced plans to build a restaurant in Arlington.

That prompted residents to form a group called Decency for Arlington and obtain more than 1,300 signatures to derail the restaurant's beer license application. Hooters sued after being denied a permit and is waiting on a judge's decision on its appeal to get a license.

The inaugural lunch crowd Wednesday included some local firefighters whose T-shirts read: "Mr. Zedler, I am not a sexual predator."

that's cause they treat their employees like shit. i have two friends who worked at the hooters downtown. they were put under a lot of pressure about their appearence. one of them was repeatedly told that she did not have 'the look' because her hair was short, because she didn't have 'the look' she was relegated to bartending or a limited number of tables. one of her fellow employees was told to 'come back when you get a boob job'.

MmmM...free beer.

i went to hooter's for a friend's birthday and was frightened that the waitress' long hair and fake fingernails would make its way into my wings. she was a total bitch.

when i went to the bathroom a guy stopped me, thinking i worked there...hello? um, i'm not ginormously titicularly endowed, nor was i wearing tacky orange short shorts and a teeny tiny tanktop.

hooter's is fun for the whole family, really. i mean, tacky unrefined restaurants aren't as bad as say...hookers.

*muah*

Hmmm it’s kind of halfway in-between a strip bar and a sports bar. So what do you expect if you go work there? I mean it’s fuck’n hooters. I mean I know a girl who is stripping right now to pay off a student loan.

Incidentally the most attractive waitress I have ever seen there had a small chest and short hair and I like boobies etc. so go figure? But then again she was a red head.

Oddly enough also the last time I was there was for a girls birthday party.

this thread is funnny HAHA - not funny queer. i'd give it five gold stars but alexd removed all voting privilages.

it's strange how people can get so worked up over Hooters, every time i've been to one the girls weren't really that purdy and it wasn't anything sexual at all - i don't like short shorts nor do i like 'ginormously titicularly endowed' women especially when i'm hungry and want something to eat. to compare it to a strip club is laughable at best. if i want to see women in a sexual manner i will go to the local catholic highschool .... uh, i mean strip club.

the one time i went in Atlanta i got the wings, since i heard that they had the best wings. their wings SUCT!!! greasy and non-meaty and just plain sucky. i hate it when i tell people this and they retort - 'well you don't go for the food'. yes, in fact i do, that is why i ordered and paid for it.

i just hope that they don't come out with a male version - 'Floppers' - with elepants as the mascot.

Not all waitresses at strip clubs are naked, they just have to go around in mini skirts or whatever. Same deal all over the place. Show some leg, chat up the customers and make more money. Etc.

Hooters is called hooters for a reason. It’s like 70’s car advertising with the pretty girl on the hood. Sex sells.

I can’t attest to the quality of Hooters worldwide, but they do occasionally have some attractive women working there I do believe. Oh yeah never judge a stripper by how she looks in the club. Take a look at them sober when they are in sunlight, without makeup, you will be in for a surprise. Incidentally strip clubs bore me, I’m all stripper’d out these days.

I don't see what the big deal is. I've been to Hooters a few times and found the philli-steak sandwich to be pretty tasty. Mind you, everytime I've been there it's been with a guy who wants to go (I'm hetro, so I'm obviously not there for the eye-candy), but I've never felt uncomfortable being in there. The girls there are probably more covered than what some girls walk around in in the summertime.

And of course if you work there, your appearance will be under scrutiny. I don't know about the "boob job" comment, cause there are girls there that aren't especially big breasted, and there are plenty of men who will choose the smaller breasted ones as their favourites. If they didn't have the right look, I would have thought they wouldn't have been hired in the first place? Perhaps it was something to do with their waitressing skills, beacause some rely on their looks rather than actual service for tips.

It's really just a sports bar with something besides commercials to look at during breaks. Family restaurant, I think not, but it's closer to that than what the Brass Rail is.

Actually, I think more and more strip clubs are urging their waitresses to wear more of a uniform. They are not supposed to take the attention away from the strippers, so management want them to look a bit more "professional". They don't want waitresses spending time with the customer, they just want them to keep bringing them drinks.

they should really broaden their hiring policy to include good looking. I've never been so I can't speak for sure but a friend of mine worked there for awhile and she had big boobs but was NOT good looking.

Last time I was at a club they were all wearing mini skirts but they all had the same look. etc. But then that was while ago.


Basically I was saying that being a waitress in a strip club is no where near the same as stripping, (it’s still basically waitressing) but because of the whole sexual angle being marketed by the establishment they can make a lot of money.

Well there is all that magic women do with makeup. But that aside I have seen some very attractive women at Hooters the times I've been there.


I think the shooter girls in the nightclubs would have to be the most provocatively dressed. But then they have to go out and hustle to get guys to buy their drinks.
