Kirilenko visits his Hooters

By Mike Mazzeo

Andrei Kirilenko visited his Hooters restaurant in Russia.

From his Instagram account:



Kirilenko told Bloomberg before last season’s playoffs that he planned to build five restaurants in his native country, with the first one scheduled to open in Moscow on April 28.

“Russians and Americans are more alike than different -- huge sports fans who are looking for great food and good times,” Kirilenko told Bloomberg. “When you’ve got waitresses that look like ours, it’s a slam dunk.”
