Thanks to Clearwater Patch reader Den who shared his New Year's eve experiences at Hulk Hogan's beach bar in Tampa in our comments section:
Went to Beach Bar Tampa for new years eve. GM really dropped the ball on the grand opening. Had bars staffed with normal lunch hour staffing. Nobody was really enjoying themselves as most everybody there was standing in the five deep crowd, at the bar. When one customer told me that he had been waiting for 30min, I got back in the boat and left. Revenues could have easily doubled, if customers were able to be served. Staff was overwhelmed and hating it. Fire the GM, Terry. He cost ya a TON of money, on new years. Any goof should know, you would be slammed on New Years.. The bad is that it cost me 100bux in fuel to get there. The good is, that is all the money I spent, as I couldn't spend money at the beach bar. (no service).
