Hooters where?

Among significant U.S. exports to Africa, one can now add the Hooters restaurant chain and all it's famed for: The continent's first Hooters is slated to open Dec. 12 in the city of Durban in Umhlanga. It's the first of three planned South Africa locations and will have, according to Hooters' press release, "a delicious local menu as well as Hooters' famous chicken wings" plus about 30 plasma TVs. Incidentally, the 2010 FIFA World Cup soccer tournament will be in South Africa -- and you can still get tickets! Go to http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/organisation/ticketing/index.html.
