I don't know why, but my dad has a thing for Hard Rock Cafe's. Maybe it's because of all the memorabilia from a time he wishes he could go back to, maybe it's the only way he'll get that up close and personal with Stevie Nick's dress, or maybe.... it's the hurricanes! (It's 5 o'clock somewhere!) For whatever reason, he has to hit every Hard Rock there is. And this was no exception.
For starters, we have the Cleveland Hard Rock, which we all have actually been to before. My sister most enjoyed the Bon Jovi wall. Although she wouldn't let me take her picture in front of it!
I enjoyed this the most! I printed up one and sent it to my husband. He'll get a kick out of it. I called it the "F.U. Wall" because there were pictures of John Belushi, Johnny Cash, and Mick Jagger flipping the bird.
I ate a VERY delicios Twisted Mac N Cheese with Chicken. It was so yummy, I'm still thinking about it! However, it didn't want to stay with me, as everyone in the camper on the way back can testify to.... (not something I really want to relive!)
My cousin Rodney was feeling just as nostalgic as my dad. Easily noticeable when I got the full length, in detail retelling of the night he saw The Doors in concert. The real live Jim Morrison Doors, that is! What a surreal experience that must have been.
There isn't a 50's, 60's or 70's group on those walls that my dad and cousin don't know.
My mom and I were talking about how so many band names don't really last through the generations, like The Pacemakers. No, they weren't a group of old geezers with heart problems. Pacemaker back then meant to keep the pace, to keep the rhythm or beat. So it was once a cool
bandname to have, I'm sure. Now, however, it just sounds like you're an old-fogey with an electrical box keeping your ticker going.
So, here is Hard Rock Niagara Falls, NY. Where we actually did see Stevie Nick's dress.
And I had a very delicious cheeseburger and fries!
The last stop on our Hard Rock adventure we didn't actually eat at. Some of us were Hard Rock'ed out, so we chose somewhere else to eat. But, this is Hard Rock Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
I did go up to ask to use the bathroom, though. So I got a glimpse, but because we weren't paying customers we had to use a public restroom that was quite a distance away.
Isn't their motto, "Love all, Serve all"? Guess they weren't living up to their motto that day!
