As noted earlier, Hulk Hogan’s new restaurant Hogan’s Beach, will have it’s Grand Opening later tonight. Hogan recently spoke to TampaBay.com about the restaurant.
“It’s going to be Jimmy Buffett’s [Margaritaville] times 10; Hooters times 10. It’s a logical extension of the Hogan brand, with my image and likeness. We’re looking for something like Winter the Dolphin. In 36 years I’ve become so tangible to the public, and not just Americans. We have a chance to have an international draw.”
Hogan also discussed his role with the restaurant, and how it compares to the one he plays on television.
“I see myself almost like a general manager, creatively. I play a fake general manager on Impact Wrestling. But this is for real.”
Hogan’s Beach will also feature musical performances by King County and DJ Gemini to help kick off the opening.
