Jeff and I have developed some untraditional traditions to cope with our unusual lifestyle. They mostly started out from every other year deployments, but continue due to his crazy schedule. One of our traditions is Hooters.
Hooters is a restaurant that is renowned for its wings and women. Some people believe that it is a establishment of low morals, but that really isn’t the case. While the waitresses are primarily young and attractive, they are completely covered in clothing. They even wear stockings and no one really does that anymore.
If there is a local Hooters, then we’re there. Last night we were able to go to the ORIGINAL Hooters in Clearwater, Florida. They had recently undergone some renovations that kept the older building from feeling grungy and the food was great. I enjoyed the traditional wings (with the medium sauce since I can’t handle the kick of the stronger ones) and Jeff got a burger that he seemed pretty happy with.
