*looks down at her lopsided boobs*

There's a new Hooters a few miles up the road, I joke with dh that he should take ds (5 months old) to hooters to see what boobs look like before they are nursed on for 5+ years

Exactly. I couldn't care less if people walked around naked down the street, but the employment issue, sizist issues, and several others are why I won't patroinize Hooters.

Only for a nurse in

I voted "No", but we just aren't big on eating at big chain restaurants. Plus, we're vegetarian so they probably wouldn't have many choices for us. My kids are too young right now to notice what type of clothing someone is wearing, but like a pp said, you see more people wearing less clothes than that in summertime. We especially do, living in a University town.

Hooters isn't kid-friendly because they disapprove of nursing there.

There was a thread a while back about this. Someone was told to leave.

Anyone remember that thread? Where was it?

Wow, seriously? That sucks! I've bf there. Noone even batted an eye. And ds wasn't a tiny newborn either. He was over a year old, and big for his age, so he looked older. (we didn't go out a lot when he was tiny, he was just way too fussy, even while being held) I personally enjoyed the humor of the situation-- being in a resturant full of boobs on display just for decoration, while mine were being functional. But then again, I have a weird sense of humor. :LOL

We went with dd1 once. I didn't know about it, but it wasn't bad, iirc.

I nursed my baby/toddler there, and no one batted an eye, except for our broody waitress who was mooning over one day having her own baby. The manager even got me a regular chair when he saw me trying to nurse on those barstools they have outside.

I didn't vote because I don't know if my kids have been there. I have a FIL who I think has gone there and I think I remember the kids went with him once but I'm not sure. If I were going, I would take my kids, but I don't think I would go there. I am not into that kind of food nor into that kind of atmosphere, but if for some reason I went I would have no problem taking the kids. I take them to the beach and to pools and I am virtually a nudist around the house so it isn't something they haven't seen.

I don't think topless would be any worse than the skimpy clothing that they DO wear. I think if I took my ds to a topless restaurant, he'd want to nurse constantly!!! :LOL

Actually, the main reason I voted "no" is because Hooters isn't kosher, and I somehow can't imagine a kosher restaurant opening up with those kinds of values/uniforms/reputation. Kosher restaurants are usually quite family friendly!!

Come to think of it, I CAN think of one reason to bring my kids into a Hooters- if somebody needed a restroom and that was the closest one available.

We go and get a wing fix about every 4 months. I LOVE the wings...kids do too! IME they've been nursing friendly....even w/ me nursing a 2 y/o.

ETA: I take them there before I'd take them to get *fast food*. ANd the pantyhose/shorts comment was freakin' hilarious!

I've been there once. Went with my grandma and my aunt along with DD when she was about 14mo. We all had hot dogs I liked it and nursed DD there. No one said a word. The waitress was really sweet and just loved dd.

I've never been to Hooter's before. I might go with dh or friends but I would never, ever take the kids. Just seems to me that it is more of an adult place.

Wow, a few hours and three pages. :LOL

I'm just dreadfully curious about it. I may talk to Mike about it again in the future, because I really would like to try it. It'll have to wait until after Pesach, at least. :LOL So it's a wing place/sports bar kind of deal? Like Damons, but with tighter shirts and shorts with pantyhose?

I 've never been to Hooters, but I have no objection to breasts. What I have an objection to is smoking (asthma) and bars (rowdiness and intoxication). If it's a clean restaurant then yes I would take them. If there was a bar and smoking I would not.

There's a Mexican restaurant that I like a lot but it has a bar with smoke that drifts into the non-smoking area. I don't want my kids exposed to the smoke so we have not gone for a long time.

I would probably take my kids. I've never been so i'd like to go first just to check it out but I'm very laid back , I see nothing wrong with taking my kiddos.

we stopped in once for take out...when ds was about 20 months old..DH took DS to get the food and I used the restroom..by the time I came out..DH had purchased a onsie with "Never wanna grow up...I love hooters!" on the front...he is 2 1/2 now and still BFing so....maybe it's true. :LOL

Not alot of explaining in my opinion... but that's just me. And if my daughter wanted to work there so be it. Her decision. Oh, maybe she could get me some good wings

Well I'm a stripper, so......

yeah, I'd take my daughter.
