Sometimes they write themselves

Which means I don’t have to:

Troy, a high-income city of just 80,000 people and home to [Michigan’s] only Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue department stores, now has another distinction. It is the only non-resort city of its size to have two Hooters.

“You come directly off the interstate and that’s the first thing you come to,” said Wade Fleming, a councilman who voted in June to reject the transfer of a liquor licence to the new Hooters restaurant from a rundown tavern that once operated at the same location. “That starts to define Troy, I think, and that’s not how we’d like to define Troy.”

Hooters executives want just one restaurant in Troy but the company won’t close the old one until it’s allowed to serve alcohol at the new restaurant, which opened Monday on a larger, more visible site.

Critics are concerned that the restaurants’ scantily clad servers don’t fit the image the city seeks to project in its Big Beaver commercial district.

“Oh, indubitably,” as Daffy Duck used to say.

    Life Imitates Toons

    Two Hooters and a Big Beaver. And that’s the punchline.

    Did They Just Say That?

    And the name Big Beaver fits the image? “Critics are concerned that the restaurants’ scantily clad servers don’t fit the image the city seeks to project in its Big Beaver commercial district.”

    Well, I live near there, and I have to tell you that not only is there a hooters on Big Beaver, but it is also exit 69 off the freeway. The sign says slippery when wet too. Belive it or not.

    I have been there and liked it when it was just known as Big Beaver. I don’t remember it as having two Hooters but I have always been a leg man.
