Texas Chain Has No Time For Entendres, Trademarks The Term “Breastaurant”
Consumerist ^ | April 10, 2013

Posted on 04/11/2013 12:25:37 PM PDT by SMGFan

If you want a $12 meal, you go to Applebee’s, T.G.I. Friday’s or whathaveyou. But if you want a $12 meal with a side of attractive waitress, there’s a wide array of ogling options. And while Hooters might be the first breastaurant that comes to mind, it doesn’t legally own the term . That honor belongs to a Texas-based chain which just nabbed the federal trademark for “breastaurant.”

ABC News reports that the company behind the Bikinis Sports Bar and Grill chain announced the move it made through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which means that only that company can use the term when describing itself.

And ironically, most of their waitresses won't be able to spell it.

I’ve known many a Hooters and Tilted Kilt waitress and I can assure you most are much smarter than you give them credit for. Most are waitressing to pay their way through college and make far, far more at these restaurants than they would IHop.

Agree. That is really a tired, old, lazy stereotype. Those girls earn their money and it’s not becuase of the clothes they’re wearing.

A couple of years ago a Double D Steak House tried to open in Tyler, Texas and was being blocked. Many waitresses went to city council meetings in the Double D uniforms and listened to the usual snarky comments, when, when they got up, shocked everyone with their arguments- they were law students. LOL.

Unfortunately the Double D side lost that. Too many powerful forces against them primarily from the biggest Baptist church in town whose members were on the council (and making some of the snarky comments about the waitresses).

Their uniforms are definitely skimpier than Hooters, Tilted Kilt and the like (not that I’m complaining).

Beautiful babes. Too bad some of them tramp stamped themselves.

I bet they earn less in tips than the normal ones.

How about restaurants concentrating on having their waitstaff use proper hygiene, clean their nails, cover their offensive tats, put their hair up, don’t wipe their noses without washing their hands after, don’t scratch their butts, don’t carry tableware and straws in their back pockets and be polite to the customers.

Nowadays almost every “hot” chick has fake cans and a tramp stamp.

Gee, I can remember when a waitress had to wear a hair net so no Head Hair would get in the food. Now, with the smaller and smaller uniforms ...

This thread is for drooling over hot chicks, not actual legitimate complaints.

a lot of those places require tats be covered.
girls at the local hooters have to use makeup to cover up.
personally, i think the tats look better than the odd blotches of slightly non-matching skin tone.

Have you been interviewing them? Does Mrs. Murphy know about this?

Just having ink doesn’t constitute having a tramp stamp.

For some reason I get the feeling that ALL YOUR waitresses earn less than others.........

Why don't you just stay out of those biker clubhouses?

Girls I know who work at Hooters can pull in between $200-$300/night. I've heard waitresses at IHop complaining they sometimes pull in $20/night.

More like a 20 buck chicken fried steak that will be difficult to finish. Last time I was at the Twin Peaks in Lewisville the waitress’ little butt could have fit in the palm of my hand, no sh!t.
