As I former front-of-the-house restaurant worker, I enjoy Natalie Ladd's column. It's a vicarious pleasure to read about the business without actually putting on support hose (Yes, I'm old.) and heading out to a long shift.
Thanks to her for voicing her opposition to the trend of mixing young breasts and food. I am bone weary of the ever-increasing sexualization of young women, as well as the shallow adulation of anyone between 15 and 25 years old. I am proud that Hooters never made it in New England. A male friend told me it was because northeastern women were clueless about flirting. He much preferred southern Hooters where the waitresses didn't mind you commenting on their breasts. Sigh. Perhaps breastaurants have also heard of our chilly demeanors and stay away. It's a glimmer of hope.
