Take Us to Hooters

To the editor: I live in Grapevine, and when I get that rare night off from work I sometimes like to hang out at Hooters. I would always grab a copy of Fort Worth Weekly while downing “wings, suds and spuds.” Well, recently I noticed that Hooters no longer has the Weekly out front any more, only the Dallas Observer. I talked to the manager and asked him, “Hey, what gives?” He told me that he also read the Weekly, but that he would be reading the articles and he gets this bug-eyed, puzzled look on his face about how “strange” some of the material was. Basically he informed me that Hooters would no longer have the Weekly in the lobby any more.
Honestly, I had to laugh. I seem to recall a while back there was a Fort Worth Weekly with a Hooters waitress on the cover (“Strange Brew,” Oct. 13, 2004). I get the feeling that maybe Hooters corporate management wasn’t too happy about it, for whatever reason. I have no idea.
Not to worry though, there is a convenience store that I stop at on the way to Hooters that carries the Weekly. So I sit at the bar and read a copy of the Weekly and shake my head as I watch these old “geezers” swill beer and ogle barely legal waitresses in skimpy outfits.

Editor’s note: Area Hooters franchises stopped carrying the Weekly in response to the story “Tex-sex Star,” from Jan. 19, 2005, in which Brian Abrams wrote that adult movie star Jesse Jane “hadn’t done anything ‘dirty’ for pay, except work at Hooters” before she did porn.
