hard rock cafe foxwoods
Here is the complete list, to date of my blog posts relating my visits and gifts from my friends, to various Hard Rock Cafe, Hard Rock Hotel and Hard Rock Casino locations, as well as the many pictures in my t-shirt and location photos collection
It almost started in 1988 when as a family on a trip in California we almost had diner at the Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco. The restaurant was across the street from our hotel and I didn’t know of the chain yet, I was only 15. However, when my dad heard the wait was 45 minutes, we turned around and went elsewhere.
Where in the world is Foxwoods? That was my first question upon seeing someone wearing a Hard Rock Cafe Foxwoods t-shirt at Six Flags in Springfield Massachusetts last summer. Hard Rock Dot Com informed me it’s in Connecticut about 1h30 south of Springfield. But what’s there that warrants a Hard Rock Café (knowing full well the one in Montreal – population 3 million – closed in 2009). Foxwoods is a native American reserve where has sprouted a huge casino complex in the middle of nowhere (really) – but there is an MGM Grand alongside the Foxwoods Hotel & Casino, lots of prestigious boutiques and well known chain restaurants.
We celebrated Canada Day (July 1st) and the 4th of July in Massachusetts this year. We took advantage of the long weekend to go to the Six Flags New England in Springfield and visit Boston. Naturally, a supper at the Hard Rock Cafe Boston was a must. Had I been alone, I’d have also driven the extra hour and a half to stop by the Foxwoods Connecticut location as well, but it was a little tough on our itinerary.
