Original Hooters gets a facelift

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — The original Hooters is getting a makeover.

The Clearwater restaurant that launched the worldwide brand in 1983 is closing Monday. The company that owns it says it will get a complete renovation and reopen around Feb. 15 — just in time for the spring tourist season.

Besides a new indoor-outdoor patio, the spruced up eatery will include a museum of Hooters memorabilia.

Hooters — whose motto is “delightfully tack yet unrefined” — boasts 487 locations in 44 states and 27 countries.
