'The Hooters 2010 International Swimsuit Pageant'
Setting the scene:
We can't remember the last time we threw a pool party, but this pageant has inspired us to pull out the water wings and inflatable giant swans, and pray for sun. Of course, the prerequisite to a decent pool party is, as you might guess, a pool. But if you don't have one, don't fret - there are portable above-ground options that are far less lame than in years past. So now that we have the water set, load up on pool toys: inflatable lounges, beach towels, beach balls and sunscreen. Have a small stage area near the pool for an informal swimsuit competition (please, no wagering). Add tiki torches, fog machines and a lighted disco ball because the party will continue late into the night. Don't forget to have the big-screen TV near the pool during the show (just keep it dry). And don't forget the Hooters tie-in. Add "Hooters at Play" signs, Hooters patio umbrellas, Hooters owls and Hooters Frisbees!
First and foremost, sunscreen (we recommend SPF infinity) - but have a few Hooters T-shirts and tanks available to whoever wants to wear clothes.
On the menu:
If you don't have a Hooters restaurant nearby to cater, be sure to choose a menu from their very own cookbook.
On the hi-fi:
Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini by Brian Hyland, California Girls by the Beach Boys, I Wanna Be a Lifeguard by Blotto, Hot Fun in the Summertime by Sly & the Family Stone, Wipe Out by the Surfaris, Girls, Girls, Girls by Motley Crue.
In the money-is-no-object world of showstoppers, we thought it might be fun to open a Hooters restaurant. Unfortunately, all of the franchise opportunities in the lower 48 are taken, meaning we need to move to Alaska to open a Hooters.
