After reading a thread in the pit I have to think why people who don’t like Hooters don’t like Hooters.
First it seems most who don’t like Hooters have not been to one and have no intention of going.
It seems it’s not the ‘strip club’ aspect, as Hooters is not a strip club, but it’s more like it confirms some peoples fears. That being that the metrosexual is not the evolution of the male, and this shows we are moving away from that and towards recognizing that men like different things in general.
Now besides good looking girls in skimpy outfits, Hooters has simple good food, the type that you can get messy eating, Hooters provides a place to do that, to eat without worrying about proper eating etiquette. They provide a roll of papertowels at each table - the same as a man would have at home if left to his own desires.
It is this symbol of societal acceptance of the real male that bothers most IMHO.
For me, I would much rather go to Hooters then a strip club, I do like the food (I love their naked wings - so much that I have ordered them for pickup several times when I didn’t have time to stay) - simple good easy to eat and fun to eat food, I like getting a new papertowel anytime I want. and yes the outfits and the friendly wait staff…
