Season 2 Episode 8

Hooter Bowl 2: "Hootdunnit?" Hoots Wings feat. VyVy Nguyen (The Sympathizer)

In this episode of Fine Dining: The Search for the Most Mediocre Restaurant in America:

Part 1: Friend of the show VyVy Nguyen is back to celebrate Hooter Bowl 2 by joining Michael at fast casual Hooters spin-off restaurant, Hoots Wings (basically Hooters without the Hooters Girls)

○ Michael dares the NFL to bring on their legal team

○ A gift for VyVy mysteriously disappears, shutting down the entire Hooter Bowl and instead launching a Hootdunnit!

○ Dick d'Ocre tries to help Melody narrow down who could've stolen her gift

○ This Hoots Wings location was located inside of a different restaurant

○ Harrison Augustine 💸 Arrylius XIV is all about high fashion

○ The most-asked Google questions about Hooters from the predictions in the search bar
JUB & Petunia are questioned and confess to an totally-not-related crime

A guy bases his star rating on what other people think of Hoots in this week's Yelp from Strangers

Part 2: Michael is finally able to give VyVy her gift, now that Harrison has been brought into custody for stealing it last week

This Hoots Wings rents a counter off to the side in a Blaze Pizza, the atmosphere is dubious at best

○ Ghost children singing Old MacDonald

○ The restaurant quits paying its cable bill mid-meal

○ What's Going on Over There in the women's restroom when VyVy witnesses something while going to take a number zero

○ Everyone's pining for entrees they didn't order

○ VyVy LOVES funnel cake

○ Next week's restaurant pick can never be spoken aloud on this podcast
