Well this sure is an interesting turn of events ...

Hooters is looking to switch things up a bit and this time around they plan on including gentlemen as part of their serving staff. When I first heard this news I wasn't quite sure what to make of it but then I thought about it, and decided that if this new restaurant opened up in the Capital Region l would not be against a ripped shirtless gentleman serving me happy hour beers.

That is until that nice fantasy bubble I was day dreaming about totally burst because as it turns out Hooters is actually planning a spin off restaurant that according to the TU is set to be called 'Hoots' and will use counter service where they plan to hire men and women. So instead of sit down dining where scantily clad women bring you hot wings and beer you walk up to the counter order your food and then walk back up there and pick it up yourself.

It's kind of like fast food Hooters only there is a full service bar and everyone is fully clothed. Apparently the menu will be pretty scaled back as well but don't worry they will still be serving their world famous wings.

I know that the Tilted Kilt didn't to well in the area only lasting 9 months but uh, I think a male version of Hooters could work in the Capital Region? Ha ha ha!

What do you think? Would you be interested in seeing the new 'Hoots' concept here in the Capital Region?
