    Oh Please. These were high school kids. You cannot be such a sheltering (Smothering) parent that you have to know EVERY place that your child goes to. Again....whether you like it or not, Hooters is a family restaurant...its not a strip club, despite what some people want to perpetuate.
    What next? Are you going to complain that they went to TGI Fridays....because you don't approve of the term TGIF...using "God's" name in the acronym?

    There really isn't a good argument for taking kids to Hooters. If it's just like an Applebees, Chilis, or Pop-eye's, then go to one of those instead. I'm sure Phoenix a chain restaurant other than Hooters. Or a local restaurant.
    Sorry Jack....but Hooters is no different that Applebees, Chilis, etc.....
    and there's no reason why a group should have to choose one over the other.
    This is just an example of one parent trying to dictate what is appropriate for the rest of the group and THAT is what I find offensive.

    Not to mention they wear "faux tan" tights so technically they're wearing pants under the shorts

    I voted no.

    The other who are saying that Hooters is just like Applebees or Chilis are telling the truth. There is NOTHING sexually charged about the atmosphere there. The servers' behavior is completely business-like, non-flirty. The place has blasting loud sports TV, video games, and kids running around everywhere.

    Maybe my perception is different because of where I live. I'm a few miles from the original Hooters location, and the area is full of imitators. So, we just don't see it as a big deal down here.

    Hell, last time I was dragged to Hooters (I don't like their food) there was a kids' soccer team at the next table.

    This parent definitely overreacted, and the school district did, as well.

    Very true. In areas where there are a lot of Hooters, people understand that they are a family restaurant. Its in the areas where there aren't any or there are very few that the misconception is most prevalent.

    Re: Hooters - should this teacher be suspended for this?

    The restaurant is called Hooters. I don't think that the name comes from eyes enlarging at the sight of cheeseburgers. I think it is quite clear how Hooters markets itself and draws customers. That said, anyone who is trying to claim Hooters is a "family restaurant" is being dishonest. Was it right to supsend the teacher? I don't know. It depends on what the teacher's behavior has been in the past. Did she draw complaints from other actions? I don't know. But I can say I would not be comfortable letting my kids go to Hooters without an ok from me.

    Perhaps it's time you cut the umbilical cord then...we're talking about High School age kids.

    Re: Hooters - should this teacher be suspended for this?

    Anyone that is saying that Hooters is not a family restaraunt must never have been to a Hooters.

    I go to the one in Hollywood quite often and I would say that the place is always at least 70% families. Granted...it is in the middle of a tourist area and most are probably families on vacation, sight-seeing...but I've been to the Hooters in Santa Monica as well and it was full of families too.


    Yes...Hooters IS a family restaurant. Maybe not for all families...but to try to paint it as anything other than it is is dishonest.

    Do you let your kids go to TGI Fridays without an ok from you as well?
