I'd like to keep her in my refrigerator.

A childhood friend of mine got a job at Hooters. He's working as a golf course manager at one of Hooters' corporate Country Clubs down south. He makes good money, he gets to travel a lot, and he meets thousands of the top Hooters girls from franchises all across the country. According to him, it's like living in a PG-rated Playboy mansion.

He also came out as gay a few years ago. Not sure if the two are related.

One of my past clients worked (and I assume still works) at Hooters as a dishwasher. A lot of places wouldn't hire someone on the lower end of the spectrum and they did through his work placement agency, which is awesome. And everyone there is super awesome and sweet to him. Most of the time I'd just wait out in the parking lot but sometimes he'd want to stick around after work. I got to know the staff pretty well as a result. Maybe it's different at others, but here it's basically like the people you see at the strip club. 90% of the time the clientele seemed really cool, and the 10% who aren't cool get bounced. I ran into a girl a few weeks ago from there and we walked and chatted and her new job as a waitress at a hip restaurant actually results in a lot more drunken pickup lines and shit than she ever got at Hooters.

"seemed really cool" for people that would voluntarily go to Hooters. Basically your Buffalo Wild Wings/TGI Fridays crowd. Actually not that much of a difference: my ex used to live above a BWW and I got to know the staff there as well, and they were similarly dressed and told to flirt as much as possible, but it seems like that'd just lead to mixed messages. At a Hooters, the clientele knows that's part of the show, but at BWW it'd just be awkward and they do it anyway.

This one kid I went to grade school with is a manager at one, and I swear he is the tensest mofo I have ever met. Apparently, he creeps everyone out, but not for reasons you'd think.

"He also came out as gay a few years ago. Not sure if the two are related."

Maybe it's like when I was seeing an ice cream maker and she talked about how basically everyone who got work in the kitchen, if they weren't vegan to begin with, ended up vegan after the first couple times they had to clean the grease trap.

"grease trap"

So THAT'S why the beer is so cold at Hooters!

Suddenly more suburban housewives were getting calls from husbands about "needing to stay a bit later at work".

Are there e-meters set up at the Clearwater Hooters now?
infinite zest - 2015-03-04
Better: Double-E Meters, amirite?

I'll never get over how ugly the Hooters uniforms have always been and always will be. Ugh, those orange shorts.
Maggot Brain - 2015-03-04
Yeah, but that feathered hair style is always going to be in fashion.

I can assure you, it's all deliberate. The marketing scheme is deliberately designed to appeal to a certain kind of man who rejects anything effete, meaning that even if there are sexy women around, they must be dressed badly and the interior decor must remain hideous.

Let me dig up info on the Hooters airline.

I still wear a hooters servers t that I found outside the hooters by the dumpster.. There's gotta be a good story behind that.

Old_Zircon - 2015-03-05
I can honestly respect a thorough and principled rejection of good taste.

I've been trying to track down a fantastic quote to the effect that only enjoying "the finer things" is a sure sign that someone has terrible taste, but I forget where I found it. I'm pretty sure it was Susan Sontag.

Anyhow it's damn true, cork sniffers rarely actually "get it."

The hooters in Singapore, the shortest and flattest waitresses anywhere.

Pretty sure there's an airline based in Laos or Vietnam that flies the old hooters planes, and they still use the logo on some of the booking sites. Oh, to have flown on Hooters.

Holy shit! Pardon my unintentional pun but how the fuck did they blow up like that? Like I said above, the one my client worked at had super-awesome staff and everything, but, the food? The Beer? Not really that great. Not awful either.. I dunno. I always wondered about Hooters in Asia: I guess I'm just thinking of Space Dandy's "Boobies" but that's the only reason I could see there being a market over there: white girls with tits. Why it's still a thing over here (or ever became a thing) is a mystery to me too: My opinion might be a little subjective since Portland has more strip clubs per capita than anywhere else in the world, but I grew up a couple blocks from a strip club that's still normally on the list for best steaks in the city, always beating out the chains like Ruths and Mortons and shit.. I don't even eat meat and there's a vegan strip club for me if I so desire. Obviously you have to be 21 (or sometimes only 18) to be in one, but still. The only people I see going to Hooters are fathers who maybe want to have a "boys night out" with their kid while the missus is out of town, something like that, as opposed to any other chain, or, you know, doing it old school and ordering better food and watching MTV Spring Break at home.. \_(ツ)_/

"I grew up a couple blocks from a strip club"

IZ are you actually Chuggo?

infinite zest - 2015-03-05
Haha I only wish I was as cool as Chuggo. No, there's just a ton of strip clubs here. I went to high school across the street from one too, and when I was a kid the apartment complex had a "clothing optional" portion that was walled off. It's actually become one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Portland too, but the clubs aren't going anywhere fast. In a way, I'd feel pretty good knowing if there was trouble there some DPSST guy who weighs 350 pounds would be taking care of it the way living close to a bar can't (unless they have bouncers too, which they do not) and the trouble wouldn't stumble into the neighborhood.

infinite zest - 2015-03-05
Oh yeah.. DPSST is an Oregon thing. I think other states allow bartenders to physically toss troublemakers, but it's illegal for bartenders to touch you (outside of something like a handshake) even if they HAVE gone through the training.

Nothing good comes or lives Clearwater, FL.

This woman has 'serial killer victim' written all over her. To be fair to her, though, that's the fault of the era she's living in.

Hooters is always cool. (PSSSST, I THINK THE WAITRESS LIKES ME)

That chick now works at the less popular place next door, Goiters.
