Wander in a Twin Peaks in the afternoon, sometime after lunch but before shift change at 4, and there will be a number of girls hanging out at the hostess stand. If there are not enough tables occupied for them to have something to do, they are like all young girls – they like to chat with each other. And at Twin Peaks they seem to do this at the hostess stand.
Now I used to think it was such a wonderful way to walk into a Twin Peaks and be greeted at the door by a half dozon gorgeous women all smiling and saying “Welcome to Twin Peaks!”. The outside world troubles just melted away.
Upon further inspection and many hours of study (and too many man sized cold drafts to count), I have a different perspective. This is a hen house. A chicken coop. Sure they snap to attention and greet and seat customers but in between they are chatting. Talking about boyfriends, shift schedules, apartment finds, sales at the mall etc.
They can also get catty too. One girl, in training (a Bambi) was talking about how she couldn’t believe the size of the breasts on one of the bartenders (check it out – Lindsay at the Addison bar). She said it was hard to concentrate on ordering a drink for a table and she kept staring at Lindsay’s rather large and full bosoms. Or, they can talk about how stingy a customer was with the size of the tip.
If you want to view a bunch of girls at once, sit up front close to the hostess stand and view the hens in the chicken coop. smile.
