The Little Hooters Girl

Well, it's certainly not your little drummer boy here. No, not by a long shot. And, NOW(National Organization Of Women Who Look & Act Too Much Like Witches To Suit Me) is hardly amused that Hooters serves children in the California cities of San Francisco, San Bruno, Sacramento and Orange County. It seems that Hooters has classified itself as an adult entertainment business in these cities and counties, and NOW has filed police complaints and even may file lawsuits claiming that minors aren't allowed in adult entertainment businesses according to the local laws.

And, I know that it must make some parents so proud when their little girls get to put on the coveted trademarked Hooters' chicken wing bib or T-shirt that says to the world, "Future Hooters Girl", but NOW says, "No way, Jose". Kids shouldn't be subjected to this they say.

So Hooters is caught in Mr. In-Between-land here. They want to be known as a sort of adult entertainment business on one hand, but also love the cash flow that comes from hosting parties as though they're sort of like Chucky Cheese, but with big breasts. And chicken wings, too.
