hard rock hotel & casino
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
If you follow my blog, even occasionally, you are well aware of my passion for this chain of thematic restaurants, launched in London England in 1971: The Hard Rock Cafe. You may not yet have deciphered since when I’ve been visiting various locations and collecting t-shirts and cocktail glasses.
Now, back to my initial question: how many Hard Rock Cafes have i visited? That’s a harder question (which I’ve been asked a lot as well both by friends and HRC employees) to answer because before writing this blog post my answer was: I don’t know.
I visited the Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas in August 2003 during my honeymoon. At that point, the Harc Rock Cafe itself was located within the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. However, there are now the 2 distinct locations – the Cafe reopened September 5th 2009 (as the Montreal Hard Rock Cafe was closing). The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has been around since 1995. I remember we ate there and had a Rum Runner cocktail which was slushy compared to the same I’d had over at the Treasure Island Hotel & Casino where we were staying.
I visited the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic three times during my week stay in January 2011 while on vacation with a group of friends – we were 25 among which were 13 kids – at the Barcello Premium in Punta Cana (or Punta Canada as you realise it should be called when you are there – just at my hotel I bumped into 3 people I know from my industry who live in Montreal and Quebec city while there).
