Never, ever underestimate the combined power of blogs and Stacy's wrath.
Stacy - and everyone else who emailed Hooters today - received this response from Hooters management:
Thank you for expressing your concern regarding the contest in Florida. A store manager decided to host an event for the employee's children which is not a part of Hooters National Marketing promotions, and has been cancelled.
Hooters of America
1815 The Exchange
Atlanta, GA 30339
That sounds like an utter load of horseshit to me, but the goal of getting the damned thing cancelled has been accomplished. Many thanks to everyone who linked to this and sent email to Hooters. GO TEAM!!!
Damn straight. Thanks for taking the intiative, Stacy.
: Interesting update from Stacy:
bq. **UPDATE the seventh - Husband just arrived home and reminded me of the phone conversation he had with the Hooters employee last night (he's the one that made the call)...and the person on the phone told us there was no entry fee and to be sure to get there early to sign up. Gee, that really sounds like an "event for the employee's children" doesn't it. NOT. I've emailed the Hooters rep with this bit of info, curious to see what she/he comes back with.
