Hooters #66

A new Hooters opened about 10 minutes from my house so as of this month, I have been to 66 different Hooters in the USA. Now, that's not to say that I've been to Hooters 66 no no...these 66 are different Hooters locations where I have been at least one time each.

A little background on some of my previous Hooters visits:

  • 5 were in the Denver area in 2000
  • 11 were in South Florida in 2001
  • 7 were around the Houston area in a three-day trip in 2002
  • my 45th was the Grand Opening of their Sugarland, TX location...I was served their very first beer on Opening Day
  • I was at the Grand Opening of the Cape Cod Hooters in 2003
  • 9 locations were during a four-day trip to southern California in 2003
While at Hooters in Daytona with my friend Chris in 1999, I saw a t-shirt: "Hooters World Tour". On the back it had a list of cities, just like a concert t-shirt would have. While looking at that list, I realized that I had been to a bunch of those places so I decided that I would embark on a world tour of my own.

In 2003 Hooters ran a contest where anyone who visited 20 different Hooters in one year would win a party. They gave out little "passport" books that we had to have stamped at each of the different locations we went to.

Why have I done all this? Well, the last line of the menu at Hooters pretty much sums it all up: "Hooters makes you happy". :)
