Best way to pick up a hooters girl is not at hooters, those girls are trained to act flirty and act like they actually want to see you there, its just like trying to pick up a stripper, not very easy to do. They like your money not you, and the more money you give them the more attention they will give you. If you want to see what I mean next time you see your hooters girl and she says hey your here again, wow, then say well of course I like the food and the service is very friendly, but hey why don't you let me take you out to dinner this weekend.
Watch her response if she's into you like you think, she will say oh ok sounds good here's my number, but if she's just playing with you cause that's what they do she will prob say something like well I would love to but. some excuse or she will say I work all the time no free time, or my favorite I have a boyfriend sorry.
