Hooters Gets Reconstructive Surgery

Hooters, the casual restaurant chain that gave the world orange nylon shorts, hot wings, and the term "breastaurant", is getting some reconstructive surgery of its own.

The restaurant chain is starting on a campaign to join the 19th 21st century with new items designed to attract female customers (like -- no kidding -- salads), and a new design for some of its restaurants.

The first location to undergo this boob job facelift is

Hooters of Kirby, in Houston, Texas. The restaurant underwent a complete

interior/exterior remodel including high exposed ceilings, painted

ductwork, cypress wood walls, and light colored brickwork. The bar has

been upgraded to included swiveled bar stools.

Hooters Kirby

will serve as the prototype for future locations. So

far, no word on which of the over 400 restaurants are next

targeted for a remodel, but we'll keep you posted when any South Florida

locations get some, um, work done.
