One Brooklyn neighborhood is in a fight.
A fight against… Hooters.
The neighborhood is Park Slope, of course. The New York Post (of course) reports:
A move by Hooters to open near the new Nets arena has gone bust so far — but brownstone Brooklyn is melting down at the very thought of the risque restaurant invading their neighborhood.
Hooters reps have been trolling through the stroller-friendly neighborhoods of Prospect Heights and Park Slope for a possible storefront — but local moms say they are ready for battle.
“It’s a disgusting national chain with bad beer and bad food,” said Lee Skaife, mother of a 13-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy.
“It’s just not a family place.”
The Good Feed Blog’s Jamie Reidy agrees that Hooters is definitely not a family place, despite the company trying to market itself as such.
What do you think?
Should Hooters follow the Nets? Would you campaign to keep Hooters out of your neighborhood?
Or do you consider Hooters the least of our problems these days?

Double bonus points if you can come up with any boob puns The Post missed.
