At least Uptown Cabaret and Mens Club are somewhat clean and upscale. Take a gander at the surroundings as you drive down South Blvd from Uptown to 485. You will see some interesting establishments.
You are correct!

If it is taking over the location of the Graduate....I would consider it an upgrade. I I personally don't see the big deal. One bar for another. I've lived in 2 towns (one large, one small) that had all sorts of establishments side by side.....I saw it as a good thing. You never knew what you were going to get from one night to the next.....and the business owners/community worked together to set reasonable guidelines and create events in the neighborhood.

Anyone that has been uptown for any length of time on a late Saturday night will tell you that the noice level just from the "revelers" is loud.....can't even here what's going on inside a non-dj playing restaurant.

I'm all for everyone having their own opinion, but we are living up to our "nose in the air" reputation. And no, I wouldn't care if they moved across the street from me no matter where I live, but if you live uptown, you have to know that the city is going to keep growing....with the good comes the compromise.

So how exactly is Hooters is worse than Cans or Alley Cat? It must just be the national reputation, because IMO, the serves at Cans/Alley Cat are often times even more provacatively dressed than those at Hooters and I don't see anyone picketing outside those establishments.

For the record, I'm an uptown condo-owner and all for Hooters uptown...great wings and burgers. Uptown needs some diversity.

This is the land of the free...if you don't like Hooters...don't go.

[quote=the 7 oh 4;4064349]You live in SouthPark...a very nice section of town. Would you want one a block from your house?

I am very down to earth personally. I know Hooter's is in most cities...but they are not right in the City Center of the cities.

We kept Coyote Ugly's away..we can only PRAY that we can keep this out of 4th Ward too.

Why can't they relocate near the Nascar Hall of Fame...there is nothing down that way is all I am saying.

It's truely a shame to voice your opinion on this site and if it doesn't fit the majority...you will get blasted for it...truely a shame.

And I have eaten at a Hooter's more than once...just don't want one down the street from my house.[/quote

I can fell for you, and your passion about a Hooters in center city. Part of your argument though is that Hooters is not in center city. I hate to break it to you, but San Antonio has a huge Hooters (no pun intended) right near the start of their world famous Riverwalk. This has in NO way detracted from the river's beauty, or the old south feel of the area.

No doubt!
Nothing more Southern than beer and chicken!

Honestly, one sees much more provocative attire at the pool or beach than in a Hooters.
But frankly I would not want one at SouthPark or the Arboretum either, but would not lobby for or against such a placement.

Maybe the better question would be: what would best fit into that location, if not Hooter's? Cause as long as it is open . . . it is available for anyone who wants to move there. So why not solicit the type establishment that is really wanted and uptown residents feel would better fit the neighborhood?

Would I care if a Hooters opened a block from my house? No. As long as it is going into a location zoned for it, all is good in my book.

This is a message board. If you post your thoughts, people will respond (isn't that the point). If you are looking for everyone to agree with you on your view, you are in the wrong place. Message boards are about sharing thoughts. Whether people agree with them is up to them.

Oh yeah, NYC has one a block off broadway and central park and they have managed. Along with downtown Memphis, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Nashville, Toronto, Portland...should I continue?
