German Hooters

No, not those kinds of hooters; the restaurant kind of Hooters. There is one, just one, here in Germany and it's only 30 minutes from our house in the town of Neunkirchen (translates to nine churches, so we assume there must be that many in the town). Hooters in Germany is almost identical to Hooters in the US. Same celebrity pictures on the wall. Same pretty young ladies in the same outfits. Wings tasted almost the same, maybe a little more butter flavor but, still, very good. You could put this Hooters down in any city in the US and not notice a difference. Well, except for the two things we saw. Beers are available in the big, heavy one-liter glass mugs and, like most other German restaurants, it's OK to bring in your dog and let it curl up under the table, which we saw a few of the Neunkircheners do.

Here's the Hooters in Neunkirchen. Don't ask me what that large cylindrical structure is in the background. I don't think there was any intentional symbolism there but seems to go amusingly with the Hooters theme.

A little strange drinking Dutch beer, in an American themed restaurant, in Germany, but, as the Hooters saying goes, it's "delightfully tacky, yet unrefined."

Standard hot wings. Kind of over did it with the curly fries.

Everything tasted great and it was a refreshing change from schnitzel. Mondays and Tuesdays are all-you-can-eat for ten euros so we'll probably get back there again when the hot wings low-level light goes on again.
