On Friday, Oct. 4, Hooters turns 30. Prior to its 30th birthday, the country's most well-known breastaurant already underwent some plastic surgery, including a new logo, an overhaul of the original location and a re-design.
To celebrate its new phase of adulthood, the chain is hosting a birthday bash on Friday, featuring reunions of former Hooters Girls.
The Hooters waitress uniform is now a well-known part of Americana, for better or worse. The outfit, like the restaurant itself, has seen a lot of changes over the years. Check out some images of the Hooters of yore, featuring some well-known celebrities. Though, we've got to admit, the clothing from a few decades ago is a lot less shocking than the hairstyles.
