They're very clean cut - little orange shorts, little white t-shirts, nasty tights. Totally and utterly unstimulating, honestly.

(I went to the one in Nottingham - is it the only one in the UK? - for a stag weekend)

Don't do it, Nordic, DON'T...

aaah, wtf - do you give the waitress an extra big tip if you come in your pants? Seems fair.

I got dragged to Hooters not once but twice last year for "business lunches"--the IMAX Corporation is perhaps not as sophisticated as some. The food was _awful_--even the fries were foul. Also the girls were ugly in that fresh-out-of-rural-Louisiana way, with the eyes a little too far apart (or too close together) and the reek of stale GPC Menthols tainting our "food." That my coworkers and the IMAX guys spent the whole time making lewd comments about both the waitresses and the female bodybuilding competition that was on the TV at the time didn't help.

Thus I rate My Time at Hooters as an Unpleasant Experience.

I'm just still amazed that she got a job at Hooters. She'll get the best tips cos she'll be the only non-horseface there. But still, the girl wanted to be a nun most of her life! Now she's in school to be an elementary school teacher! It's OUTRAGEOUS! My dad blames me.

Ally (mlescaut), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 12:32 (10 years ago) Permalink

i've never been to hooters - i take it the waitresses all have big tits and don't wear bras? it sounds gross yet interesting.

i'm going to open a rival chain for women called Nads, where there will be hot male waiters in extremely short yet loose shorts.

I have been to Hooters a lot, one of my friends (who happens to be gay) is in love with Hooters. It's bizarre, it's always me, him, and some random Israeli dude, all of his roommates are Israelis. And the waitresses. I have a shirt from Hooters, I'm pretty jealous of my sister, because I kept threatening to go work at Hooters but SHE ACTUALLY DID IT.

Ally (mlescaut), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 13:46 (10 years ago) Permalink

at one of the places I used to work at in Chicago, we'd order Hooters for dinner all the time. I've eaten the food, but never been in one. Unfortunately, not long after I started this job I went veggie.

hstencil, Wednesday, 30 April 2003 13:48 (10 years ago) Permalink

I have been to the original Hooters in Clearwater, business lunch. The girls were ok if you like stripperly types. I could gawk at women at Clearwater beach without having to pay for crap food if I wanted to do that.

Hooters has had many sexual harrassment lawsuits against it. I guess that is pretty much expected.

Am I the only one who keeps misreading the word "tips" on this thread? Yes? Okay. I'm off to perform penance.

OK, my dad clarified his misplaced blame: he believes this is the result of me giving my sister shiny leather pants.

I think the worst thing about Hooters is that they make them wear nude hose with shorts and white Reeboks. ::shudder::

Kenan Hebert (kenan), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:00 (10 years ago) Permalink

Y'know...

I just have to ask: What in Holy Fuck is the deal with this vapid tone among Young College Intellectuals that seems to deride any playful expressions of the "straight male mindset" as being completely deplorable and "neanderthal"? And why do I get the feeling that those same YCI's would have "fuck-all" to say about, say, a known gay entertainer publicly drooling over which straight male celebs he'd love to see half-naked and greased up (something I've come across on a few occasions, in some of the movie/entertainment rags), for example???

I mean, not trying to start a fight here (although I doubt that'll fend off some of ILX's more Righteous types), but I'm just openly wondering...

Supposedly there's a sports bar in Baltimore called Balls. No information on the staff uniform available.

Then my friend Jacki and were joking about opening a restaurant to be called Buns, featuring waiters in bike shorts and half-shirts.

Dude, both me and my sister are Young College Intellectuals, and we're like living our lives on the basis of the straight male mindset.

Ally (mlescaut), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:09 (10 years ago) Permalink

Skittles, I don't really sense that tone here. First of all a few people here seem very enthusastic about Hooters. The rest (including myself) seem to feel that Hooters=just-not-titaliting-and-rather hilarous instead of "deplorable and "neanderthal".

That Girl (thatgirl), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:11 (10 years ago) Permalink

Skittles, you are bang on but to be fair that tone is more prevalent at ILM and Ally has never given me the impression that she's of this opinion (I mean, she's just started a thread on Hooters).

Calum, Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:14 (10 years ago) Permalink

The real urgent and key question is who is the entertainer, and who does he want to see greased up? I'm betting it's Nathan Lane discussing Matthew Broderick.

Ally (mlescaut), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:16 (10 years ago) Permalink

Skittles, I think your descriptions of ILXers as "righteous" and "hipsters" is a little unfounded. I for one, am so far from being either of those it's a joke. Maybe even hip!

there are a lot of strip clubs that serve food, y'know. Somehow, this does not appeal to me (despite being a fan of both naked girls and food).

Besides, what is U&K is that we discuss those horrid, horrid uniforms.

come on Ally, I know you hate nude hose! Would you really want to work there and be forced to wear them?

Where are you from, skittles, that is so square that it makes ILX seem like hipstermania by comparison?

buttch (Oops), Wednesday, 30 April 2003 14:24 (10 years ago) Permalink

Skittles: You have a point but part of this has to do with the restaurant setting. There's a notion (which the Hooters chain subtly encourages) that male restaurant patrons are entitled to ogle and maybe even grope female waitstaff, by virtue of their service role. And I admit that my "Buns" concept does play off a gender-bent version of this same dynamic.

That was the point of my last sentence, it just wasn't put well...A hipster would never make a mistake like that! Or would they?

Bright orange is often symbolic of madness. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

I was at one of those places in Santa Clara or Palo Alto or one of those Silicon Valley suburbs once. They had just got nu-pope in. It cost them $450 or something to replace the pope. The staff were all really pissed off that the management wouldn't let them sell the old pope on eBay.

I'm finding it hard to shake the image in my mind of an owl with human breasts for eyes trying to get to the center of a tootsie roll (TOOTSIE ROLL!) pop.

Also, owls are assholes because of their annoyingly superior and withering gaze, but with human breasts for eyes, they're really something else aren't they?
