Hooters Suspends School Girl Night at Harrisburg Restaurant

Hooters Expels 'Schoolgirls'

The popular "School Girls Night" at a Hooters restaurant in Harrisburg, Pa., was suspended last week following a wave of complaints from local townspeople, questioning the ethics and morality of such an event in their community.

Mostly due to the outrage caused by a sign advertising the event, the restaurant's management decided to cancel last week's edition. Normally, Hooters waitresses serve their famous chicken wings and hamburgers dressed in school girl uniforms of the Cathloic elementary variety.

The Harrisburg Hooters is located near many local campuses, including Dickinson College, Messiah College, Shippensburg University, as well as branches of Temple University, Widener University and Penn State.

"The schoolgirl theme is popular everywhere," a 26-year old woman who visits Hooters once a week to the Harrisburg Patriot-News. "Hollywood, porn (whether you agree with it or not) and even music videos (a la Britney Spears) have all maximized on this theme.

The manager of a Hooters restaurant in State College, Pa., near Penn State's main campus told the newspaper they don't plan on putting an end to the popular event anytime soon.

"To eradicate it in one place won't do any good," she continued. "If a man has the mental capacity and desire to violate an underage girl, he will do so no matter what the girls at Hooters are wearing that day."

Hooters had 435 locations in 46 states, as well as restaurants in other countries.
