I can tell you that we do like both of those. We just have our own organic, artisanal versions of both.

'The restaurant would never attract customers because it's a misogynistic, sexist outfit and nobody from the neighborhood will go.'

And on tonight's episode of "Answering Your Own Question"...

p.s. Can someone help me with the geography here? The article says they want to take advantage of the Nets moving in -- yeah, that's a real boon to the local economy -- but won't you walk past plenty of good places before you get to Park Slope or Prospect Heights?

/Hooters sucks and should be a last resort... for a homeless person

FTFA:

Heather McMaster, 35, said the move by Hooters is no surprise but said she doesn't believe anyone will even go.

'It doesn't surprise me that businesses like Hooters are coming along with the stadium,' she said.

'The restaurant would never attract customers because it's a misogynistic, sexist outfit and nobody from the neighborhood will go.'



If she's married, I feel really sorry for her husband.

The thing is, Hooters is a national brand with instant name recognition. You'll get customers there no matter what. That profit will be funneled back into the local economy and the patrons will of course spend more time in the area increasing overall area profits for everyone.

Yes, they have mediocre wings. Yes, they have mediocre service. Yes, the waitresses are ho-hum. But it works as an anchor for the sports neighborhood.

Where some customers may feel intimidated by a new area and trying to find a sports bar that is comfortable and familiar, Hooters provides that as a package deal.

This is a big mistake by Brooklyn. They should be welcoming these restaurants while promoting local restaurants too. It's not an either/or.

Wow. Hooters has decent to good hot wings and really attractive waitresses that seem to have fun showing off. Cool.

Yup. They'll do just fine. I may even stop in after I take my nephew to Nets games when he gets old enough, despite somehow managing 33 years of existence and never stopping in one.

eeeeeehhhhhhh. Brooklyn isn't really new to most people at this point, especially that area.

Meh. They'll do fine either way. Brooklyn isn't fighting this, it's a few landlords and women's associations imo. The politicians probably don' give a rat's ass either way, and all it would take is a few campaign donations to help them push it forward.

I hate, loathe, and despise breaded wings. I would rather go to McDonalds for a bland cheeseburger than eat wings from Hooters. However, I do like their shrimp and french fries. I just wish they knew how to make a hot sauce.

If that were true then places like McDonalds would not be in business in most places in the country.

And if subby things Hooters wings are "amazing" they must never have had good wings which is in itself a tragedy.

They're still better than the ones at Buffalo Wild Wings.*

'Wingdings' are not wings. They have there place, but there really is no comparison.**

* Seriously, if you have a food item in the name of your restaurant, you should at least be able to do that one food item right.

Ironically, the few people I know that actually patronize Hooters like to claim that they actually 'go there for the food.'

So, I'm a gay guy in SLC and I really like buffalo wings. There aren't too many places here to get decent buffalo wings with beer other than Hooters.

I for one couldn't care less about the boobies. I also read Playboy for the articles.
 
2012-05-02 06:18:42 AM
Why are Hooters outfits considered so horribly risque?

- The shorts are short, but the girls wear pantyhose
- Their shirts go all the way down to their shorts
- The shirts are low-cut, but no more than what can be bought in any clothing store

Go to any college campus in the country and you will see dozens and dozens of girls wearing less clothing than a Hooters girl.

This is some weird version of faux-outrage that makes no sense to me at all.
 
2012-05-02 06:27:00 AM
Hooters should close here, mainly because the seating is incredibly bad. I was in there once, and it was like some form of torture just to sit in the chairs. Food was completely forgettable, and the local outlet is famous mainly for the fact that Harrison Ford once walked in out of nowhere and ate lunch while his plane was being worked on at the airport.

/TGI Fridays just closed here, and well sped; maybe it's a trend.
 
2012-05-02 06:33:52 AM
I live in Park Slope and am a single male who loves boobies and hot wings.

I simply object to the possibility of another mediocre national chain with blah food setting up shop when we have a pretty fantastic culinary scene.

Plus we don't have any blondes.
 
2012-05-02 06:49:20 AM
The hooters here sucks and I don't find much joy eating crappy food while a bunch of mouth breathing 4's in push up bras provide bad service while flirting for tips.

Would rather go to a good bar with awesome wings then hop over to the titty bar for some fun.

Technically the new Nets Stadium is in Prospect Heights, and Park Slope is a few blocks south.

These two neighborhoods epitomize what gentrification is. Everything you imagine about yuppies, helicopter parents, boutique pets shops, locavore food, etc. is right there in those two neighborhoods. Twenty years ago the strip along Flathbush Ave. south of Atlantic was really rough. Now it's prime real estate.

Anything that smacks of chain-anything gets enormous push back, not just Hooters. Claiming they don't like it because its a boob establishment is only a small part of the reason. They also wouldn't want a McDonalds, a Friday's, a Home Depot and certainly not a Walmart. Frankly anything that would bring in the riff-raff from the neighborhoods immediately outside of Park Slope and Prospect Heights gets push back, not the least of which was the Nets stadium itself.

2012-05-02 06:57:18 AM
my little town is populated with fatties and soccer mom breeders. why Hooters opened up on the highway i don't know but they closed after two years.
 
2012-05-02 06:57:21 AM
I say hell to the effin' no. The Park Slope, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights and Fort Greene area is beautiful. There are plenty of great Brooklyn restaurants and bars that serve better food (not frozen) and beer (microbrews). We don't want it turned into that gross surrounding cesspool wasteland that is Madison Square Garden. If Brooklyn doesn't stay local, unique and cool, it no longer is Brooklyn.
 
2012-05-02 07:03:13 AM
Park slope has two things, restaurants and young families.
I guess if the hooters is next to a stadium then it will pull in a crowd, but with two full avenues lined with top flight restaurants I don't see why anyone would want to eat bad wings served by women in too much make up ugly shirts and shorts.

/now if there was a strip club with a buffet, just tell me where to park the stroller.

We had one Hooters restaurant in the area, they went out of business.

I never went there, but I guess they had shiatty wings like everyone says. Really how do you bring a chain that specializes in wings to Buffalo NY?

The yuppies and hipsters rich or lucky enough to live in these neighborhoods love their small stores and charming restaurants. Sure they might be more expensive than the chains but you don't live in these neighborhoods to live cheaply.

Chains attract the mouth-breathing philistines that either can't afford the prices in the restaurants or are too lazy to try something new. And a lot of them will be drawn to the neighborhood once the Nets complex is up and running. The fear from the locals is that the area will be overrun and local stores will be crowded out by the chains. It'll turn into suburbia, only the riff-raff just need to take a cheap subway ride to get there.

Hooters has big boobie girls. But I can see those anywhere. Doesn't make up for their wings that taste like heavily breaded rancid dog ass.
You want good wings, go here:

(I said good. Not great. Everyone has a place they've been to with awesome wings. [Buffalo Reef in Fort Walton Beach, Fl or Wild Wing Cafe] I just had to pick a place with good wings that most people would know.)

I don't really see the problem here. If you don't like Hooter's then don't go there. Enough people say that and they will go out of business, just like the one here did. No one is forcing anyone to eat there. Got someplace better to eat? Well then go there and support your local business. Let the owners f this franchise make a bad business decision.

The problem isn't that the locals believe Hooters will fail. It's that some of them are horribly, horribly afraid that it won't.

It's simply a target for the easily offended. The professionally offended. Any half-wit soccermom type that doesn't accept one single thing that's out of her world-view. They're everywhere, and they must be fought.

mediocre wings
mediocre girls
shiat service (but you can be an inept waitress as long as you're wearing revealing clothing and feigning interest in the customer)
 
2012-05-02 08:04:34 AM
If I want to see boobs I'll go to a strip club and see them up close and personal.

If I want hot wings I'll go somewhere that has made themselves a success solely on the merits of their food.

My life is not so complicated and busy that I need to combine some low-grade version of the two.

And for those whining about it being un-free market, two businesses would support more local industry than just one.

It's awesome that people can be snobs over deep-fried chicken trimmings covered in overpowering sauce. Don't get me wrong I like chicken wings too but they aren't the second coming or anything. When most people eat wings they are drunk and their idea of 'fine dining' may include McDonalds breakfast.
