|Parent who complained of school trip to Hooters sees backlash
UPDATED: 4/16/03 1:45 PM
BELLEVILLE - A Belleville mother who complained when a school official took a group of junior-high students to a Hooters restaurant has been taking some heat.
Joni Quaas says other parents at her daughter's school have been shunning her since the incident. And she says she kept her daughter home last week to avoid being teased.
Quaas complained to her local school board when the superintendent took 26 seventh- and eighth-graders to the restaurant while in Springfield last month.
The chain is famous for the skimpy clothes its waitresses wear.
The superintendent says Hooters was the only place within walking distance that could handle the big group. And many parents support his decision.

|Every year my employer has a big management shindig in San Antonio. As part of the festivities, the company distributes a list of recommended bars and restaurants in the city. A few years back, Hooters was on the list. My boss complained about its inclusion on the list. Considering her a nutty California feminazi, the Texans have needled her mercilessly about her complaint every year since.|

|I always wonder what others are seeing that I'm not. Whats the big deal about running shorts and t-shirts? You see WAY more revealing & suggestive garb any normal beach, let's be honest.
Friggen uptight Americans, still paying lip service to archaic puritanical mores. Meanwhile, the porn industry in this country rakes in billions of dollars, and half the 12 year old girls you see are clad in Britney-slut fashion. Hypocrisy running rampant.

|let us enjoy the human form whilst gnawing on buffalo wings!
I did have a serious laugh once, stopped at a light in front of a Hooters. It was the hottest, muggiest day of the year - I was sweaty and icky, having already ridden an hour - and there were two Hooter babes outside with promotional signs. Just the dichotomy between me and them....two women who couldn't be futher apart!

|I've never been in a Hooters (really) but I have passed one with patio service on more than one occasion. The waitresses always wear panty hose under their short-shorts. Is this part of the official Hooters uniform?|

|I think a better choice than Hooters' nylon shorts with panty hose would be Daisy Duke shorts with black fishnet stockings. If you're going for that white trash look, why not push it to the limit?|

|i've only been to hooters once, but have been told i'm very observant and detail-oriented. all the servers wore pantyhose and covered visible tattoos or related marks with makeup. yes, pantyhose is/are disgusting, especially with short-shorts. :(|

|never been there but heard it was based on attitude, not anatomy. the servers were encouraged to be arrogant and insulting. it was part of the establishment's "charm".|

|Its a 50's themed establishment (chain now) that hires hard-up actors. They must audition for the job. Some people really like it there. Its not my cup of tea.|

|Had one here in Denver, but it went under. Went there a couple times. They had live blues there but the food was just okay and a little expensive. The charm was surly staff who would deliberately insult you and frequent paper napkin fights amongst the clientele. I think it started in Chicago, then franchised out. It's still around though. . .

|All we had growing up was the underwear section of the big Sears catalogue, and maybe an occasional good National Geographic issue. Kids are spoiled these days.
