Reader: I think I should be a model but will serve greasy Twin Peaks food instead...

Denver was home to the first Hooters west of the Mississippi. Although that pioneering breastaurant on South Colorado Boulevard is now gone, more curvaceous concepts have come to take its place -- including Twin Peaks, which now has three locations in the metro area and its own Twin Peaks Mountain MANual,, which it celebrated with a meet-and-greet with some of the calendar girls this past weekend.

I think I'm hot and should be a model but will serve greasy food instead...

Adds Eric:

What do you get when you magnify vanity, ignorance and broken dreams? This calendar.
Do you frequent any of the breastaurants around town? If so, is it for the beer, the food...or the scenery?
