One member of our party remarked that the Hooters girls made him "sad." I disagree. While I understand the impulse, there's also something weird and paternalistic about it. Anecdotally and from interviewing a former Hooters waitress here and there, I can report that they seem to make good money and genuinely enjoy their regulars. They sell flirtation as well as food, but then lots of servers do, and by today's standards the Hooters uniform is practically tame. Who wears pantyhose anymore?

Hooters may be taking baby steps toward modernizing its image, but thus far the new look has sunk barely a talon into St. Louis. And really, that's fine. The Hooters girl is still an icon and she still does the same things really well: cold, cheap beer and wings, and service with a wink and a smile.
