Hooters is known for chicken wings served by scantily clad waitresses, which is what brings in their mostly-male clientele. But many of these waitresses get to know their customers, and for one waitress, getting to know a customer led to a truly life-changing event for both of them.
Mariana Villarreal hadn’t been working at the Hooters in Roswell, Georgia for long. But she had already gotten to know some of the regular customers, including Don Thomas. Thomas had been frequenting the location for a while, and he and Villarreal seemed to hit it off right away.
