Yes, exactly - it's the revealing skin tight form fitting high riding bust enhancing outfits that really set it appart from Applebees.
And the food - the food at Hooters is aweful but then again, I am a master in the kitchen and don't like dining out for that fact. :P
If they were just a restaurant with a quirky name then they'd just be wearing regular clothes - but they have this whole 'package' of perception that they maintain with their magazine and bikini contests, etc etc.
They want the attention, they want to define theirselves that way, and that's what they get. . . why deny it? They are what they are.
It's not horrible - but it's just inappropriate for an teacher/student mealtime location, kwim?
It's just that simple to me.
