Anyone go to that Hooters charity opening last night?

I kind of wonder if the event was a fundraiser for Mayor Jeff Speaker’s upcoming campaign.

Anyway, I’m curious. How did it go? See anyone you recognized?

Tomorrow’s the day, Brookfield. Wednesday, November 18th you get your very own Hooters. No doubt my blog traffic will plummet once you realize the place is finally open.


  1. Blog trafffic won’t plummet, assuming they have free WiFi 🙂

  2. I’ll use my dining dollars elsewhere, leaving Hooters for the bar trade.

  3. Randy in Richmond says:

    And I’m not going to see any more Brad Pitt movies.

  4. I acutally did go last evening. A lot of people there and looks like it will be successful. Having been to a number of Hooters over the years, I find all the “excitement” about “this type” of restaurant funny. I would bet that the vast majority of people angry about it have never been in one in their lives. Food is slightly above average, but it really is a good sports bar. If you want seedy, go to the bar area at Fiesta Garibaldi at Ruby Isle.

  5. Randy in Richmond says:

    I totally agree.

  6. Oh, yes, we can agree about Fiesta Garibaldi.

  7. I don’t go to the bar area anywhere. What’s up at Fiesta Garibaldi?

  8. I’ve been for lunch with the kids a couple of times. The food’s not very good. Don’t know about the bar scene, though. Missed that angle of JackE’s comment.

  9. Hey, JackE, it just dawned on me that you sit on a city committee. Does that mean last night’s invitation list was city related?

  10. I love Fiesta Garibaldi’s food! Been dining there since it opened, never really had a problem and the service was always wonderful, if not sometimes interesting (disconnect with English speaking patrons!). As far as the bar area, JackE has that right, at least the bartender. She could give any Hooters girl a run for their money with the tops she wears.

  11. Cindy, Just a customer, like evereyone else

  12. Hmmm. I thought I read it was a charity thing, so I assumed it was an invite only. Guess I was wrong! Thanks for getting back to me.

  13. Bdad! For shame. You weren’t actually looking, were you?

  14. How exciting – a new Hooters. Life is good. Merry Christmas everyone!

  15. No, no, not at all, someone told me… 😉

  16. Okay, I’ve been cheeky about Hooters, but one thing does irk me. A good number of the scantily clothed waitresses are local seniors in high school. They are all 18, but that does disappoint me.

  17. Aaaaaack! 1) that means you’ve already gone, and 2) for crying out loud, girls. Call me. We’ll talk. I know tips are tips (been there, done that) but there are a few other things to consider!

  18. You know, I’m still having a hard time with this one. Does the school have to issue work permits for over 18? If so, they did to work at Hooters. Wowser.

  19. No they don’t.

  20. Well that explains it.


  21. I didn’t go, son did to the “friend of an employee” party.

  22. Your son has good taste, Bdad.

    I’ll tell all of you, this Hooters whatever will be a thing of the past in about 6 months. If not, there are other issues at play.
