Unless the area has a huge gay population, I give it about three months.

This is bound to become a hangout for young, giggling, ogling gay males. Straight employees will eventually quit. Gays will replace them. Before long this Hooters will be equated with the gay bath houses. I don't think the owner has thought this through, but greed and profit tends to cloud the vision.

I don't know, seeing as this is Dallas, this place could get quite popular with the wealthy cougar class, having a ladies lunch or a ladies night out....etc.....

Although the restaurant is situated in a predominantly gay neighborhood, Tallywackers is a place for any and every customer.
"While we are aiming towards the LGBT community as part of our audience, we are also expecting and welcome, a diverse clientele including women," a spokesperson told HuffPost.

This is pathetic, embarrassing and likely to fail. Just a sad statement on the our country's current moral standards.

Why on earth would I, or anyone, want to go to an eatery to see man breasts?

This.

Wasn't this tried before back in the 1990s by somebody? Maybe it was a local Seattle thing, not sure. I know it flew like a lead brick though.

I really don't see the big deal, how is this any different from the vast amounts of breastaurants that have popped up over the past decade plus........someone has a business idea, they're running with it, if it is done well and there's a market for it, they will succeed, if not, they won't.

Unless you are gay, a horny female college student or middle aged woman, you are not the target clientele.

The difference is that women don't tend to ogle men in the same way that men ogle women. Not that women don't appreciate a good-looking guy, but but f you look at the women who go to see male strippers, they go in groups for a special occasion, they hoot and holler and try to embarrass their friends, They're not actually turned on. It's not really sexual. Some men will go to Hooters or strip clubs by themselves on a regular basis, and it is a sort of sexual release for them.

Something like this might work better:

Think abercrombie and fitch with the shirtless models. Straight males will avoid this place like the plague. Not sure how successful the place will be unless the area has a lot of rich housewives, gay community, single girls, etc....
