Hulk Hogan — remember him? — is opening a new restaurant. I betcha didn’t know that Hulk Hogan (Terry Bollea) had an old restaurant, but he had a couple.
Anyway, he’s opening his new one in the old Crabby Bill’s location in Tampa.
Hogan tells the Tampa Bay Times the restaurant will be “Hooters times ten.” I’m going to sit and imagine that for a minute.
. . .
Okay, where was I? Oh, yeah. Hooters times ten.
Reminds me of a story I think I’ve told before. Years ago, I took my son and one of my nephews to a Braves game. Afterwards, as we were heading back into Columbus, it was getting to be supper time. I asked them if they wanted to eat supper before we got back to the house.
About that time, we passed a billboard for the new (at the time) Hooters restaurant in Columbus. And, my nephew, being a mischievous one, said, “Let’s go to Hooters!” Since they were young teens, he and my son laughed.
Only, I was determined to have the last laugh. So, when we got to the exit, I took the heading towards Hooters, not the one towards the house. And, then pulled into the parking lot. Then took them inside.
They ordered their food and, with eyes wide and mouths agape, did their best to eat their wings. I ate my burger.
A day or so later, when I took my nephew home, his mother asked him about his trip. My nephew said, “We went to Hooters!”
Shocked, my sister asked, “Well, how was it?”
“We (pointing to himself and my son) enjoyed the wings, but I think he (pointing to me) liked the legs and the breasts.”
I’m not sure Hulk Hogan’s restaurant will be able to top that.
