According to multiple sources, disgraced WWE legend Hulk Hogan’s Tampa breastaurant Hogan’s Beach has closed its doors after two and a half years of business. Let’s check the eatery’s official website for more information:
At least Hulk has those Pastamania! franchises to fall back on.
The restaurant opened in the final days of 2012 with this quote, which would become prophetic:
“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.”
In 2014, the restaurant’s dress code went viral for such instructions as “no baggy pants” and “no sideways hats.” People then began to notice that there weren’t any black people in the Hogan’s Beach commercials. Funny how things come together after a while, huh?
The other notable incidents in Hogan’s Beach history include that time a lady stole an expensive wrestling shoe from the gift shop before it could be auctioned off for charity, and the saddest Labor Day rave you’ve ever seen.
We wish the staff of Hogan’s Beach the best in their future endeavors, and hope somebody remembered to give Jimmy Hart a ride home.
