We already have a Hooters right down the street from Carnegie Hall. Adding another would hardly tarnish Brooklyn's reputation.

I have no problem with Hooters in Brooklyn. It'll be a familiar place for all the people from out of town coming to the games. It'll be built to accommodate as many of them as possible which the restaurants in the neighborhood are not.

Would you rather have to walk past a Hooters sometimes or have the entire stadium spill out into Park Slope looking to get hammered in your local bar?

SnarfVader: Amazing hot wings?

Not sure if serious.jpg


Subby sounds drunk and impressionable
 
2012-05-02 08:25:01 AM  

untaken_name: Snuffybud: 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.


I still don't see the problem. The girls are not out on the street grabbing people and dragging them in. It's nothing but a chain restaurant with average wings and flirting waitresses. It's not like it's a titty bar, it's a wing joint. Don't like it, don't eat there. Ignore the place, just like you would any other restaurant that you don't feel like patronizing.

abhorrent1: bad beer? is that possible?


That's what I was wondering. Don't they use the same kegs, setup and distributers as every other bar anywhere? They also do a very high volume of beer sales so I imagine the kegs get swapped out every couple of days max. It's not like your going to get stale beer at a Hooters.

Haterz gonna hate. But if I was going to a NBA game with my buddies and there was a Hooters next door I can almost garantee me and my stupid friends would stop for a pitcher or 4.

Cybernetic: 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.


Is it the name? I've never understood the outrage myself. There are these local sports bars between Austin and San Antonio called Bikinis that I understand the outrage a little more. Bikini tops and daisy dukes. They like to build them right next to the colleges.
 
2012-05-02 08:36:00 AM  
I've never been to Hooters. Way too self-conscious to go to one. I don't like advertising how tacky I am, nor do I like being made to feel like a tool.
 
2012-05-02 08:37:53 AM  

Mock26: 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.


I respect your right to despise breaded wings. However for some reason I feel compelled to respond and saying that I LOVE breaded wings. My favorite are the wings from Publix, better than anything I've eaten at a restaurant.

You appear to believe in free will. That tells me that you don't understand the mindset that these people have. They believe that if they don't like something, no one else should be allowed to admit to liking it, either. They can't even conceive of the notion that they might not be the best arbiter of everyone's behavior.

Oh, I understand the mindset. Ms Busybody and her friends most likely object to everything that doesn't fit their little world. Myself, I'm glad there are places like Hooters, Home Depot and Walmart around. They have their place in modern American life, even though not everyone appreciates that. I spent close to 2 decades living 15 miles from civilization, now I'm within walking distance of a mall. I love being able to run to Target and back without having to plan out my shopping trip, worried that I'll forget something and have to waste an hour making another trip.

When I used to go, they were always naked. I like breaded hot-wings. Like Bru's Room Triple Threat. Hooters had always been that naked slimy tobasco stuff. If they have changed that, maybe I need to repay them a visit. At the Hooters in Boca Raton, off Glades.

Hooters is what really sheltered Southern boys think is hot. Or possibly what gay guys think straight guys like.
Hate the frickin' pantyhose, you can see better outfits in any good fancy bar and the food there blows.

OhioUGrad: Mock26: I hate, loathe, and despise breaded wings.

This!

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


This conversation ("Hooters sucks x is better") has gone down here a hundred times - every time something happens at a Hooters, someone doesn't want a Hooters, or someone just says the word 'hooters' in a thread.
I'm betting subby's headline is more "heh, watch this".
It worked.
 
2012-05-02 09:20:14 AM  
I used to live there too; moved out when the landlady, after nothing but COLA rent increases for 10 years decided to triple the rent.

These stroller brigade yahoos KNOW what's best for them and for everyone else.

They picketed a Barnes & Noble when it opened; now they spend their Saturdays there blocking the aisle with their double wides and admonishing Tiffany and Charlton not to wipe their boogers on the books.

These are the same people who picketed a bar & grill when it decided that children weren't welcome after 8:00 pm.

CSB: I'm in a small grocery store in that neighborhood and 2 mommies are blocking the entire aisle with their kids in hand having a conversation. I say excuse me. I say excuse me again. I push through between them and they both sputter with righteous indignation. How dare the mean nasty man want to get to the overpriced dairy case!


Thank goodness that like many articles here; they do not represent the average Brooklynite. Hell, they don't even represent the average person from the Park Slope neighborhood. They're just extremely vocal, well organized assholes.

I'm guessing you're joking here, since hotness according to your argument depends on the fanciness of the clothes.
 
2012-05-02 09:29:27 AM  
First of all, Hooters has shiatty wings and there are dozens of better places to get wings in NYC.

That being said, this isn't about wings, or misogyny. It's about race and class. The neighborhoods where the protestors live are just west of "brownstone" brooklyn. Brownstone brooklyn is incredibly liberal, wealthy and exceedingly white. They prefer everything artisanal, organic, cruelty free and not in their backyard. Just to the north you have Bed-Stuy, Bushwick, East New York and other very poor black neighborhoods. this has a lot less to do with wings and a lot more with "protecting" property values.

It would be hilarious if they keep Hooters out and a Tilted Kilt moves in. Even better if they didn't know what it was and let it in because it sounds Scottish and worldly.

Those girls wear much worse outfits than Hooters girls.

Another winner. These are like gated communities, only the 'gates' are high priced rents, expensive boutique stores and restaurants, and very limited parking. Anything that would draw in outsiders (i.e. minority riff-raff) into the neighborhood, whether its a popular entertainment venue, a chain store, or a parking lot, immediately draws protests. But they can't actually say that so they'll instead argue about neighborhood 'character' and a 'family-friendly environment'.

When I was managing bars in Los Angeles (shady neighborhood, late night), we used to escort the fine young ladies who worked at the Hooters across the street to their cars, or gave them rides home. If I know pantyhose ( and i think I do) they were not wearing any. Do they do that now, as a rule, or is it just based on weather conditions? Please tell me it's the latter.

FTFA:

'It's a disgusting national chain with bad beer and bad food,'

I tend to agree with the bad food and bad beer. Thermonuclear wings? Pfft. I will also add bad service. When the table next to you takes pity on your group and sends you one of *their* pitchers because they notice you've been sitting there for 45 minutes during a slow afternoon at 3pm, It's time to leave and go somewhere else.

Never again.

Go because you think it might be fun. Leave because it's one of the worst run chains in the world. I don't know anyone who is a repeat customer of Hooters.

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.)


BW3!

That place is unmatched in quality.

AverageAmericanGuy: 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.


You really don't know what you're talking about. There are lots of bars and restaraunts there already. It's definitely not cheap to live there so any boost will be in a lower of quality of life and property value. This shiatty joint will only attract the kind of crowd they aren't interested in having. By the way, Brooklyn is huge, and this neighborhood is just a small section of it so if local residents don't want it, it's really their own business, not anyone else's.

Bzzt, wrong. The residents down 'own' the neighborhood, so it's not really just their own business. The commercial districts in the area are for all of Brooklyn, all of NYC, and all outside visitors to enjoy. The residents in the adjoining areas can express their opinions but they certainly don't have the definitive say of what goes there and doesn't. This isn't a co-op, an HOA, or a gated community. If that were the case the Nets stadium would never have seen the light of day.

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.
