I predict this venture will not succeed. We need a tag for that outcome.
 
2012-12-24 07:33:39 PM
It is on the way to my office in Tampa.  I will not be going there.
 
2012-12-24 08:17:48 PM
*facepalm* Oh, brother!

It's in the Best Western.  That's like a Super 8 with less cigarette burns in the carpet. Gimmicks are what you resort to when your food can't stand on its own.  Under normal ownership, I'd give it 8 months.  But, since he does have some money and will probably throw good money after bad, I say 2 years.

Sounds like this is one theme restaurant that comes pre-shark jumped.

Hooters times ten? Does that mean there will be live sex acts or something?

Pincy: Hooters times ten? Does that mean there will be live sex acts or something?



It's more than likely that the cuisine will be ten times more expensive-and worse.

Damn you, and your 38 seconds! And my decision to hit preview and flake out.

FTFA: To go along with the beach theme, there's volleyball courts, fire pits, cabanas, tiki huts and cabanas.

The Hulkster really likes cabanas, it seems.
 
2012-12-24 09:22:41 PM
Margaritaville seems to work. I don't doubt that this will be just fine.

Although I bet the Hulk Hogan brand will be slowly erased from this as time goes on. No sense in tying it to him except for the initial launch.

"and then brother," added Hogan, "half the servers have got black mustaches so you know they're bad."
 
2012-12-24 09:34:45 PM
Hooters x 10?? Those are some big boobs.
 
2012-12-24 09:35:12 PM
Hooters times 10? So are the waitresses going to offer to have sex with you on a hidden camera while the bartender listens in from the other room?

If it does, we'll know it will be something the boss would handle himself.

Good food and great service are what a restaurant needs, not a sideshow. Those can add to it, but won't atone for bad food or inattentive and surly servers. Based on celebrity eateries I have seen, I doubt it will last a year.
 
2012-12-24 09:55:02 PM
Michael Lomonaco won't forget what Hogan did to Windows on the World. Hope Hulk has insurance.

It will be closed down some time in the future, whenever hogan realizes it won't make money or gets to deep. Fact is a business is a business and hogan has no business in the restaurants.

/Enjoy it brother, what else do you have since your daughters oiled ass is busy getting beef jerked?

Much like how this:

has no business in or anywhere NEAR the music industry
 
2012-12-24 10:15:05 PM
The food will be terrible, but I heard the hot dogs are quite large.
 
2012-12-24 10:44:19 PM
All of you are grossly overestimating the sophistication of the Tampa social scene.

This place will have lines up and down the block. Just one whiff of "OMG, THERE MIGHT BE A CELEBRITY THERE" and people will be coming from all over the entire Gulf Coast.

And we all know what you can do in a cabana that usually deserves being said twice...

Someday someone like Kim Kardashian will try and open a place with muscular men wearing a sexy chef costume or something and be surprised that it fails.
 
2012-12-24 11:10:01 PM
Asked by the Times about his role with the restaurant, Hogan cited his fictional managerial experience.

"I'm not a restaurant manager. But I played one on TV."
 
2012-12-24 11:17:35 PM
Will they be offering complimentary orange Thermoses at the grand opening?

he dresses like a Hooters waitress. I can't believe I never noticed that.
 
2012-12-24 11:31:34 PM
The only way it can be any bigger fail is if he let's Bubba the love sponge manage the cash register.
 
2012-12-24 11:35:55 PM
Will somebody more clever than me please make an 'orange thermos' joke?

I'm being serious: Is that his relatively young daughter, or the 50-something hag ex-wife?

That's his daughter, unfortunately

I heard that Dwayne Johnson is going to be a celebrity guest chef!

People will smell what he's cooking all up and down the block.

If he comes through the hooters portion of his claim, I could give two shiats how terrible his margaritaville side goes. Boobs sell. Hooters food sucks and they do well.

I don't know if I totally respect someone's business intelligence who thought Pastamania! at the Mall of America was a good idea. But, to be fair, if I had to open a Pastamania!, MoA wouldn't be the worst choice.

Mr.Hogan may be smarter than some think he is. College educated self made millionaire, there's a good chance he is lending his celebrity to front for a fun time dining experience backed by other peoples money. Win lose or draw under those circumstances it's 'pay me' or pay me after i'm done with you in Court.

I'd love it if the napkins had to be ripped open like the old Hulk tank top. I still have one.

Roooooaaaarrrr!... napkin.

Why is this a FAIL? Is FARK losing sense of its priorities?
