Hooters coming to Fresh Meadows

James Gallagher, president of the Fresh Meadows Homeowners Civic Association, said he was told by a reliable source that the former Future Diner in the Fresh Meadows shopping center will become a Hooters.

Word of the venture spread through the Fresh Meadows community over the weekend...


Hooters Slated For Fresh Meadows Plaza

The diner, which closed in 2005, became famous when Democratic presidential candidate Bill Clinton campaigned there during the 1992 election and then returned as president for a televised health forum in 1993.

Now Bill has a reason to make a return visit...

Now, wouldn't a Pizzera Uno or Ruby Tuesday or Olive Garden be better?

Is it just me or does this restaurant seem more appropriate down south with a name like Hooters?

Rather provincial, aren't we.
Truth be told, it's the south that is becoming the ascendent location. The north is dying.

Provincial? I don't think so. As far as the south is concerned, they have a LONG way to go before certain perceptions are changed. You may have a few cities that have progressed but the many of the people haven't. Look at the way they vote.

"Look at the way they vote."

Thanks for proving my point.
Suggest you travel more.
I've been in the high tech business for 35 years and there has been a dramatic shift to the south. I remember NYC when it was an electronics and aviation center. What's left?
Take a look at the demographics of the US census.

I totally agree. However, YOU may want to travel outside your techie circles and meet some of the real folk down there.
Especially the ones that hold bible readings in their basements every Saturday night.

Women were commenting about it on Channel News 1 negatively. Men were making comments on how it will boost up the economy (cough cough). Anything to put a smile on a man's face doesn't bother me at all.

Gays and straight women should open up a similar restaurant called "Cocks" and have a rooster as the mascot.

If I get to oggle at something, so should they.
