Saarland leading in Germany

My home state is making (again) history: The first German Hooters restaurant opened in Neunkirchen. The food industry newsletter café-future.net says that Hooters “…ist vor allem durch seine leicht bekleideten Serviererinnen in knallengen Hot Pants berühmt.” It explains the derivation of the name: “Einmal pro Stunde sorgen die insgesamt 35 Hooters Girls mit Showeinlagen für die entsprechende Stimmung (to hoot = johlen).”

Really? Take a look at their website. I somehow doubt that the attraction of the restaurant is “Johlen” and “knallenge Hot Pants.” But you never know.

    Really? It’s from “to hoot = johlen”, and there I was thinking all along that it was because “hooters” was slang for “breasts”. Silly me.

    Looks like they just copied the press release. But what a Kulturereignis. Makes me proud to be a Saarländer, even on the shores of the Missouri.
