Work it! Looking for a little extra cash? Well, if you're feeling hot, head to the ultimate Scottsdale casting call looking for the sassiest Valley vixens.You’re sexy and you know it, so flaunt what your mama gave you! (Of course, keepin’ it classy.) Well, the perfect combination of sass and sophistication is coming to Scottsdale: Twin Peaks Restaurant, apparently AZ’s savvy new sports bar on steroids.
Like every good sports bar, Twin Peaks shows everything from football to big boxing matches, but they take getting fan-crazy to another level. The restaurant features Twin Peaks Girls, also known as Lumber Jills.
“The girls wear stone-colored shorts with a belt of their choice, designed around the iconic red buffalo plaid top, similar to the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders’ attire. The print is very Ralph Lauren,” said Meggie Miller, National Director of Marketing, Twin Peaks Restaurant.
They also wear fashion-forward Ugg-type snow boots, and dress to the occasion when the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show rolls around.
The hot Hooters-like eatery first opened in 2005 in Texas, and since then, things have been booming. Later this month, the Valley location will launch on Frank Lloyd Wright, but before that, the restaurant needs AZ’s most eligible servers.
“We’re looking for fit, beautiful females with loads of personality. I often get asked if a certain bra size is preferred, but that’s ridiculous! Peaks are beautiful in all sizes and have nothing to do with our hiring criteria,” said Miller.
Yep, this Friday, January 6th, Twin Peaks is holding a casting call for potential “TP” girls. It will be from 10am to 2pm at the new Scottsdale location. Those interested should dress to impress, and be prepared to model the Lumber Jill get-up.
“The perfect Lumber Jill embodies the qualities of the beautiful girl next door. She’s sassy, fun, and playful – the quintessential social butterfly who loves to host a party. And of course, our costume requires Twin Peaks Girls to be physically fit and well-styled. I have no doubt that Arizona has the right talent to create an amazing team.”
An amazing team that will run quite the sports bar. The restaurant features made-from-scratch cooking, 29-degree beer served in frosty mugs, and a fantastic TV package showcasing all the games. The menu flaunts popular dishes like slow-roasted pulled-pork nachos piled high with homemade queso, legendary chicken fried steak, and fresh salads like chicken cobb.
And this is bound to make your mouth water: all Twin Peaks’ dressings, sauces, and gravy are made in-house. Their mozzarella sticks are hand-cut and made to order, resulting in gooey, melt-in-your-mouth cheese framed by a perfectly crunchy layer of breading. (Ooh la-la!)
And to wash it all down, Twin Peaks serves $2.99 shots all day, every day. (There’s also a menu of specialty shots, like the Hangover RX.)
“We have a fantastic culinary team, led by Executive Chefs Lex Berlin and John Franke. It’s something we’re very proud of.”
As for pay, Twin Peaks Girls receive an hourly server wage plus tips—apparently really (REALLY!) good tips. They can also win prizes during sales contests, and some are offered additional paid promo-modeling shoots. So if your piggy bank is begging for some extra cash, consider joining the TP team.
“We don’t have a specific number of how many girls we’re looking to hire, but we do need a healthy staff to handle the influx of guests.”
