    A former Hooters waitress has sued the restaurant chain in federal court, alleging she was pushed out of her job after brain surgery left her with buzz cut hair and a healing scar that made it too painful to wear a wig. Sandra Lupo, 27, had worked as a waitress at a St. Peters, Mo., Hooters since April 2005 but took a leave from her job for a few weeks last summer to have a cranial mass removed. Lupo had the support of her manager, who visited her in the hospital and suggested when she was ready to return to...

    Spring training is a time during pre-season where players get to practice, play and make mistakes. This year, even the ball girls are getting in on the blunders. The Philadelphia Phillies and Tampa Bay Rays were in the top of the sixth inning this weekend when Rays' hitter Shelly Duncan hit a ground ball that bounced into left field foul territory. The ball was ruled fair, but a Hooters ball girl picked it up with her glove and handed it to a fan in the stands. The embarassing move wasn't a total loss. "She has no idea that she has...

    The Santa Monica Police on Thursday named a suspect in the August stabbing of a 19-year-old near Hooters restaurant in downtown Santa Monica. DNA evidence recovered from the scene allegedly tied a 39-year-old illegal immigrant to the attack, which was unprovoked, according to the police. The victim survived. The police said they expect Francisco Leon-Urbalexo of Sonora, Mexico, will be arraigned on three felony charges—including attempted murder—after he completes a 10-month sentence in federal prison for illegally re-entering the United States.

    A Hooters hostess described an Asian couple as “Chinx” on their food receipt — then copped to the slur and quit, a lawyer for the burgers-and-boobs restaurant disclosed Tuesday. The shocking incident occurred July 1 at the Hooters in Fresh Meadows, Queens, when Kisuk Cha and his girlfriend placed a takeout order for buffalo shrimp and chicken wings — and got an extra helping of racism, according to Cha's lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Federal Court. Cha suspected something was up because the food server was "gawking" at them and "giggling" after looking at the computer monitor. After paying the $21.75...

    Even as the Democratic National Committee profits from the "Republican war on women" meme, liberals opposing Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., have decided to attack the governor by targeting a woman in his campaign on the basis of her history of "unnatural sexiness." Ciara Matthews, Walker's communications director, is under fire for being both pro-life and a former Hooters restaurant waitress. "Profitting (sic) from selling a plasticized form of unnatural sexiness designed to arouse men while simultaneously believing that women should be forced to face the 'consequences' of actually giving into to their sexual desires is a pretty backward way of...

    The Wisconsin recall race is nearing a climax, as Democrats will hold a primary on May 8 to select a challenger for Governor Walker, and the general election will take place on June 5. The recall election is expected to be close, with pretty nearly everyone in Wisconsin already having made up his or her mind on the race. On the other hand, one of the Democrats’ problems is that don’t get to just run an anti-Walker campaign. They have to nominate a specific candidate to run against the governor. That puts them in more or less the same position...

Hurley claims the 11-pound Chinese crested is a service animal, which is permitted in public places according to the Americans with Disabilities Act. She had the dog on a leash when it was spotted by County Executive Ron Woody last week. Hurley says she simply didn't know dogs weren't allowed in the courthouse.

The subject this time was Hooters' catering to children. The restaurants in San Francisco, San Bruno, Sacramento and Orange County are classified as "adult entertainment" establishments but also serve minors, NOW's California chapter said in papers filed with police and prosecutors. What's more, the organization said, Hooters provides child menus, high chairs and booster seats, and sells T-shirts in children's sizes that identify the wearer as a "Future Hooters...

Hooters expects to collect over 100,000 pairs of pantyhose through this effort dubbed, Project Pantyhose, which could ultimately absorb 1 million gallons of oil in the Gulf, if the booms are reused 8 times, the average life of a boom.

    A former Hooters worker in Roseville stands a chance of winning her weight discrimination lawsuit based on a law written by a retired Grand Rapids legislator -- a law not found in most states. Cassandra Smith, 20, alleges a Hooters restaurant -- known for its scantily-clad waitresses -- placed her on 30-day "weight probation" earlier this month. She resigned, filing suit Monday in Macomb County Circuit Court. The suit cites the Michigan Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination by employers based on a number of factors. Height and weight discrimination were added in a 1976 amendment written by then-state...

Hooters has recently shopped itself to a number of private-equity firms as sales have sagged with the recession, sources said. The closely held company, meanwhile, is in advanced talks with a Connecticut-based investor that has been granted certain rights of refusal on any potential transaction, according to one source.

    Women have long complained that their faces are often the last thing men look at – and now a scientific study has proved them right. Researchers found that virtually half – 47 per cent – of men first glance at a woman’s chest. A third of the so-called ‘first fixations’ are on the waist and hips, while fewer than 20 per cent look at the face. Not only are breasts often the first thing men look at, they also glance at them for longer than any other body part, the experts discovered. It’s thought that the reason might be evolutionary,...

Seeing as the NFL regular season is nearly underway and testosterone is hanging heavy in the air, the new menu features a football theme, says Hooters. It's a seasonal menu for the fall. New menu items start at $4.99 for "Loaded Chips," thick-sliced potato...

    A Texas man has reportedly settled a class action lawsuit against Hooters for refusing to hire men as food servers. Nikolai Grushevski filed a complaint against Hooters of America in January alleging its Corpus Christi franchisee would not hire him as a waiter because the position was being limited to females by an employer "who merely wishes to exploit female sexuality as a marketing tool to attract customers and insure profitability." Hooters argued a “bona-fide occupational qualification” defense, which applies when the “essence of the business operation would be undermined if the business eliminated its discriminatory policy,” according to Onpointnews.com....

Sarah Brown and Ann Zucker, two Broward Democratic leaders, said they'd never heard of a candidate fund-raiser at Hooters.

The lawsuit is an attempt to reopen an issue that was settled 11 years ago in a class action that ended in an agreement that established that the chain’s signature Hooters Girls could continue to be the restaurants’ only food servers. Nikolai Grushevski’s suit recognizes this earlier agreement, disputes it and invites other men to join him in seeking another class action. He asserts in the suit that when he applied to...

    John Daly has been suspended for six months by the PGA Tour for conduct that brought unwelcome publicity, including a night in a North Carolina jail to sober up. “Is it fair that I got suspended? It’s not fair in reality, but it’s probably fair in perception,” he told The Associated Press on Wednesday. This is the second time the tour has suspended the two-time major champion, along with at least two other times he agreed to take time off to get his life in order.

    When you hear the words "Hooters," "John Daly" and "extremely intoxicated" in the same sentence, you know where this story is going. In the latest chapter of Daly's longtime struggle with alcohol abuse, he was held overnight in a North Carolina jail after passing out at a Hooters restaurant... According to police, Daly "appeared extremely intoxicated and uncooperative." Daly again refused to go to the hospital and was eventually asked to leave by Hooters employees...

    Cellphones aren’t the only distractions to be banned from Dartmouth roads. A few weeks ago, police officers showed up at the recently opened Hooters Restaurant, on a busy stretch of Main Street. They weren’t there to grab a quick bite to eat but to ask the establishment’s employees to stop shaking their stuff so close to traffic. It seemed some drivers couldn’t help but turn their heads to catch a glimpse of the young women doing jumping jacks on the side of the road, with the result being plenty of honking and even the occasional collision.

The 12th Annual Miss Hooter’s International event wasn’t just a celebration of beauty, but also the 25th anniversary of the first Hooters, which opened in Clearwater, FL in Oct. 1983.
