Reality Show Planned Around Twin Peaks Restaurant Waitresses?

A TV reality show film crew is planning on producing a series around life at the Twin Peaks restaurants.   One can imagine the situations and stories (drama) surrounding the waitresses.   The buzz is that they had planned on flying in for filming at the Frisco location on Tuesday, but cancelled due to last minute schedule conflicts.    We’ll be poking around trying to find out the re-schedule date and let you in on the details.

In addition, photo shoots have commenced using the waitresses for the upcoming Twin Peaks Pin-Up girl calendar.   It is believed the pin up girl look will be like those classic vintage ones from the 40’s (example below).

Girl Chatter on day after Labor Day

The day after a 3 day holiday is usually slow at restaurants.   With this thought in mind, I selected Twin Peaks for a late lunch and chatting it up with the waitresses.   They were in the mood to talk and I got an earful.

There were several sitting and hanging out at my table, as their sections were either empty or not very busy.   The conversation got around to what we all did for Labor Day weekend, and one of them (sorry but I feel obliged to not reveal their names as you will soon find out) said she took the weekend off and went to San Antonio with her ex-boyfriend.  Asked if she was getting back together with him and she replied “no, we just had sex all weekend”.   Lucky bastard I thought.   The other gal (both are only 19) said she pretty much just worked all weekend, but said she was in a bitchy mood ’cause she was mad at her boyfriend.  He wanted to come over that night but she was not in the mood to see him.    Turns out he is her ex-boyfriend’s best friend.  But then there was something said about one of her best friends slept with her boyfriend so she was mad at her friend for long time.   I need a score card here.

Back to San Antonio-weekend girl with the sex weekend and her ex-boyfriend.  Both girls talked about how stupid it was because there would be complications.   Actually San Antonio-weekend girl said she is more like a guy and doesn’t have all the emotional drama of wanting to get back together.  Meanwhile, she is having halter top issues.  Her bright colored bra keeps slipping out at the bottom of the plaid halter top.  Both girls work on pushing it back underneath.   I had to sit on my hands.

San Antonio-weekend girl said she didn’t know why she wore that bra, as it was an underwire and she was slim enough (small B cup) to not need that type of bra.  She actually would prefer to not wear one she said but the fabric is too thin.   I added, “yeah, headlights on would not be an approved uniform look around here”.   She replied “hmmmm, no, it is more that my piercings would really show through”.  (honest – not making this up).   In addition, she had her tongue pierced a year ago (and yes, she laughed and admitted her boyfriend liked it).  The other girl asked, didn’t I realize about 80% of people get their tongue pierced for sexual reasons?  I was born way too early.

Just then Cougar Killer shows up.   And the party starts.

Twin Peaks Frisco – a hangout for kids and adult sport teams

On Labor, I dropped in for lunch at the newly opened Twin Peaks Frisco location (map location) and thinking being a Labor Day and all, it would be empty.   It would also give me a chance to chat with Charisse, the winner of the previous nights bikini contest at TP Addison.  My assumptions were wrong – it was not empty.  Rather a good size crowd was there.   While it was nice to sit and chat with both Charisse and Kara, a veteran from Lewisville Twin Peaks now starting bar in Frisco, what was most interesting was the character of this new store.  Here are my unfiltered observations.  First, the bar is my favorite.   It seats 32 in the U shaped configuration.   Plano seats 17 and Addison only 20 (even though it feels bigger).  Next, you can sit at the bar and look up at 3 big screen flat panels, each with a different sports station.   Total at the bar there are 8 big flat panel high def screens.   Beautiful.   Looking out across the bar at the restaurant, there are an additional 10 (just from what I could see and count) additional flat panels.   From any angle you are viewing 3 or 4 different sporting events.    In addition, there are TVs at each booth along the outside wall where you can select your own station.

And while the bar is ideal for single seating or with seated with a couple of friends to grab a burger and beer, the rest of the restaurant was clearly not your average sports bar with guys hanging out.    There were FAMILIES there.   ALOT.     A little kids hockey team was there at 10 minutes till 11:00 I was told.   Those hockey dads are probably thinking – this is WAY BETTER than Chucky Cheese.  LOL.   They took up a couple of tables and booths way in the corner and the Twin Peak waitresses were all over the awards presentations for the little kids.  Lucky kids.   Then there were parents walking in with a baby in the arms.  And there were a couple of parents with teenagers sitting in booths.    Being Frisco, this should be no surprise I suppose.   Also, considering that the founder lives in Frisco with his family, you can be assured it will remain very family friendly (he brings his wife and kids in there).

The managers are very friendly and nice – Alan, Lenny and Betina make a point of coming up and saying hi, how are you, what can we do for you, etc.    Alan thinks this location will be very sports team active, especially the adult soccer and softball teams.   It also makes sense that kids sports teams will be coming here.  I bet when the season starts, a lot of the youth soccer club teams that invade the Frisco Pizza Hut Park soccer fields every weekend in the fall will start hanging out after the games at Twin Peaks.

Here are some observations / hints to share with you.   First, if you have little ones, sit in the booth.  They can select what to watch on the TV.    If you have kids, or just an adult who likes to doodle on your beer labels, it looks like there are crayons at the hostess stand (I saw a couple of girls organizing about a hundred crayons on the bench beside the door).   If you’re a gal that is going there because of your husband or boyfriend or kids team event, don’t dismay at the sports pub menu of food items.   They have a “spa menu” for the waitresses with each dish being calorie conscientious.   I admit to asking for the spinach salad with grilled chicken sometimes – and it’s good.    You’ll have to ask politely for spa menu items, but they’ll do it if you’re nice.    Also, they do have wine – not the best – but drinkable.   With more women showing up to eat there, I heard talk about offering some better quality wines.

So I guess you could think of this new store location as a great place to get a bite to eat, have a cold beer or your favorite beverage, see some sports action on the TVs, and have waitresses dressed kind of like football cheer leaders, albeit a Paul Bunyan them.

All this family stuff shouldn’t deter a regular guy from hanging out there.  Look for me at the bar, eating and drinking and socializing.   Or strike up a conversation with Sean Salisbury of 105.3 FM, The Fan.   He is a regular at the bar.  If you want the waitresses to ooh and ahh at your table, bring a cute kid.

Miller Beer offer at Twin Peaks: Holographic Cowboys Collectible Cups

Addison Bar - That's One Big Ass Screen

Addison Bar - That's One Big Ass Screen

If you’re a Cowboy fan and won’t be going to the Stadium this year, then you gotta get an official Cowboys Stadium Cup.   If you buy a pitcher of Miller Lite (official beer of Cowboys Stadium it turns out), on a Cowboys game day, then you get 2 Official Cups free.   The inside word is that they only have a limited number of cases, so they may be gone after a couple of Cowboy games.   See the ad copied from the Twin Peaks web site below.

Charisse wins Twin Peaks Addison Bikini Contest

Charisse - the winner

Charisse - the winner

The First Annual Twin Peaks Addison Bikini Contest was held Sunday, Sep 6 at 6 pm.  And what an event.    We arrived at 4:15, thinking we could get a prime seat for viewing, but alas, all the tables in the middle were taken.   Yet, by 5 pm we felt fortunate as it was just about left to standing room only, or sit in the “Cougar Den” (separate party room with shuffle, foosball, etc and TVs).  The crowd was of course male dominated but I was surprised at the number of girls in attendance – either with their boyfriend or as a supporter / voter of a girlfriend who was in the contest.   So not only where there some hotties in bikinis, but some hotties in the audience as well.

The contest is open to any girl from a Twin Peaks restaurant, and they started to wander in around 5 pm, from Mesquite, Lewisville, Plano, Frisco and of course Addison location.    Several weeks ago they held one at the Mesquite location and several of the guys I talked to mentioned they had attended that one as well.   Each girl gets a “catwalk” across the long curving bar – they put a carpet down on top of the it.   Each girl is also asked some questions and their answers are read out as they strut down the bar top.   The questions are a bit lame but sometimes funny – like what is your favorite body part was one of them.   Afterwards, each girl walks around from table to table to ask you to vote for them.  The stakes are high, as first place gets $500 in cash.

It ended around 8 pm, with the winner being Charisse from the newly opened (Aug 31) Frisco location.  Charisse was a sweet heart and a beauty to behold.  Her swim suit was custom made (and it showed).   She worked at Hooters for a while, then switched to Twin Peaks Plano where she moved up to heading up the training there.   Now she works at the Frisco store, tending bar.   We also learned she is married, and is moving from N Dallas to Frisco, which is a more family place…suitable for raising kids I asked?   Charisse politely dodged answering that question.

Next bikini contest is in Plano, Sep 20th.  Cougar Killer and I will be in attendance.  smile.
