Skip to comments.BOUNCED! Brooklyn folks around Nets' new home say bra humbug to Hooters
Posted on 05/01/2012 9:19:18 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
A move by Hooters to open near the new Nets arena has gone bust so far but brownstone Brooklyn is melting down at the very thought of the risque restaurant invading their neighborhood.
Hooters reps have been trolling through the stroller-friendly neighborhoods of Prospect Heights and Park Slope for a possible storefront but local moms say they are ready for battle.

Hooters is about as risqué as an trip to the mall. I hate when idiotic prudes ruin other people’s fun.
When my sons were young, my ex didn’t bat an eye about taking the boys to Hooters to eat. She liked the food!! And we were good Presbyterian folk, too!!
Hooters might be a lot of things, but it doesn’t even come close to qualifying as “risque”.
When my son was 14 my wife took him and a bunch of his friends to Hooters for a birthday party. I don’t go in there very often but every time I do I see families in there and children of all ages.
It’s a RESTUARANT!!! A place to eat, drink and watch sports. Maybe a liquor store should open in the area instead of Hooters, would the moms like that?
Maybe the fact that NONE of those women is good looking enough to work there is the problem?
Maybe the women are afraid their husbands would spend to much time there with the nice, goodlooking, YOUNGER girls, watching sports and drinking with their friends and not at home with the shrews they married?
There is nothing risque about Hooters. I like the fact that Hooters angers the hyper-fanatics.
There is actually one in downtown Taipei.
So much for respecting people’s right to choose.
Forget Hooters. Open a Tilted Kilt.
Hooters is about as risque as going to a womens college swim meet.
Peace sells, but who’s buying? /sarc.
As a Christian man, I would never go to Hooters, much less take my family there, as the main attraction of the chain seems to be putting women in skimpy outfits so that men can lust after them.
But, the idea that Hooters is beneath the community standards of that part of Brooklyn or of NYC in general is rather ridiculous.
Except the Hooters girls probably aren't lesbians.
“Except the Hooters girls probably aren’t lesbians.”
Think you meant softball players.
Wonder what they would think of this place opening in the neighborhood?
I think Hooters is a bit tacky but I also feel that people can determine what they feel is appropriate for their neighborhood. If I’m not mistaken, that’s what zoning is all about.
I went to school in New England...
