‘I Took My 9-Year-Old Son To Hooters As A Treat For Doing Well At School’

“He was a bit shy at first but then he loved it.”

A man took his 9-year-old boy to the Hooters as a reward for doing great at school and now, the boy is hooked. Paul Edwards has certainly garnered attention with people commenting on his choice of reward for the young boy.

Hooters is a famed chain restaurant in the US, iconic for the waitresses dressed in white tops and orange shorts that are designed to show off their figures.

Paul, 36, was happy about the teacher’s praise for his kid, who actually didn’t believe that such a place existed. So he decided that showing the place in person would work better.

“He was a bit shy at first but then he loved it,” said the dad. “The staff were great and so helpful, and the food was beautiful.”

Paul said his son absolutely enjoyed himself at the place and added, “He loved it and wants to go again the weekend.”

And speaking of their “dad-and-lad” night out, according to Paul, his wife didn’t mind them and was even the one to drop them off. It also seems like they’ll be returning again this weekend for World Cup’s England vs. USA night.

Hooters opened a new joint in Liverpool while facing a load of criticisms, mainly from those who dubbed the restaurant’s service as “degrading” towards women.

But the business was certainly booming since the day it opened up, as one of the customers shared a viral clip of the crowded restaurant just days ago.

The labor councilor for Liverpool, Maria Toolan, has started a petition against the chain, “Hooters is an archaic and chauvinistic brand and this kind type of venue is no longer reflective of today’s society. Hooters employs women to promote its business activities in an exploitative manner, It demeans and degrades women and undermines female equality.”

While Liverpool’s chain has been approved, City centre councilor Nick Small has rejected the permission for the bright sign from Hooter as they “fail to preserve the character and appearance of the application building and Castle Street Conservation Area and the setting of adjacent listed buildings.”
