Our home looms behind the Hooters sign on the other side of the river touting their 'wings.' I think the popularity of spicy-cooked chicken wings came from all those chicken breasts that got sold as entrees. Someone figured out you had to do something with the wings. Of course, back in the day you could buy a basket of chicken livers or gizzards, too. You don't see that anymore. Hooters is a restaurant with a reputation for scantily-clad women serving the wings or whatever. I was in South Africa in 2005 and a friend's son who had been to the States was wearing a Hooters T-Shirt. I mentioned it and he said, "It's a family restaurant!" I don't think his parents were the wiser.
