When the first Hooters opened in 1983, the idea of nubile twenty-somethings in white tank tops and hot pants serving chicken wings was perceived as racy and scandalous.
But America’s attitude toward Hooters has sweetened. And today the wing joint/sports bar/eye-candy store celebrates its thirtieth birthday.

This American Life sure has changed since Hooters first opened.
This was the first ever Hooters Girl.
The more things change, the more things stay the same.
People have rallied around Hooters because of its unabashed patriotism.
And for the restaurant’s support for this country’s future.
So, too, Hooters appreciates the achievements of earlier generations.
A birthday celebration at Hooters is a special experience.
Hooters is also, as far as I know, the lone American restaurant chain to host its own beauty pageant. Would people tune in to see who is crowned “Miss Applebee’s”?
And where else do such luminaries as T.O. and Audrina meet?
