While not exactly the proudest moment for the Houston area, the recently opened 14,000 square-foot space marks a bold new frontier for the wings-n-ladies craze that continues to sweep the nation.
Picture two floors with three full bars, a private "man-cave" party room and a year-round courtyard with fire pit. More than 130 high-definition televisions have been installed . . . which is roughly one TV for every 100 square feet.

Restaurant executives expect to bring 200 "Twin Peaks Girls" to the sleepy borough of Shenandoah (pop. 2,134). As such, the chain unleashed an aggressive campaign in May to lure in recruits with perks like "tanning and fitness packages" as well as "flexible scheduling for school."
"Twin Peaks Girls also wear the pro-cheerleader-inspired 'Lumber-Jill' costumes and have the chance to star in national modeling opportunities," reads an actual announcement from the company.
"Prospective applicants should arrive dressed to impress as positions are in high demand. No previous restaurant experience is required for consideration."
The Houston area dining scene has witnessed a rush of breastaurants in recent years as establishments like Bikinis and Bone Daddy's hone in on turf long dominated by Hooters, which was opened by a group of Florida men known as the "Original Hooters 6" in the early 1980s.
Founded in the Dallas suburb of Lewisville — home of a July breastaurant scandal involving body paint — Twin Peaks has managed to stave off the fierce competition since 2005 and now operates more than 30 locations across the country, including four in the Space City region. A fifth area branch is being built at I-10 and Kirkwood.
