When we arrived at our hotel, we were pretty beat and decided to take a nap. By the time we woke up, our breakfast from earlier had worn off and we were starving. I noticed the Hard Rock when we were leaving the train station. If the town has a Hard Rock, you can bet you will find me there eventually. I am a member of the pin collectors club and am working on my milestone pin. .
When we arrived, we were greeted in English. The hostess asked us how many and told us it would be just a minute. I made sure to ask for nonsmoking since she didn’t ask. You have to make sure in Europe that you ask for nonsmoking, or else it will automatically be assumed you want smoking. While waiting, I looked up to notice the drum set of Metallica’s drummer, Lars Urlich, overhead on a thick piece of Plexiglas. It looked pretty well hung up there, but I was still hoping our waitress would come soon.
John and I were starving, so we went with an appetizer instead of dessert. We started out with the Santa Fe spring roll. These yummy spring rolls are filled with chicken, spinach, black beans, and cilantro, corn, jalapenos, and jack and cheddar cheese. I ordered the blacked chicken pasta, which consisted of blackened chicken, spinach leaves, and tomatoes on penne pasta covered with a rich and hearty Alfredo sauce, served with garlic bread. Oh my! John went with the Stormy Blue Burger, which is a seasoned hamburger with melted blue cheese on top and horseradish and fries on the side. The portions were plenty, as we felt like we needed rolled out instead of walking out. .
This branch of the Hard Rock has been feeding Dances since 1995. Now, while critics don’t necessarily embrace Hard Rock, fans do. And they must be doing something right to have been around since 1971 and have restaurants all over the place, adding more all the time. Most people still come for the rock-and-roll atmosphere. While waiting for your food, you can check out the collection of music memorabilia that can be found everywhere, including the bathrooms. Here, I spotted yet more Elvis stuff (I assume he might have liked the Hard Rock, since I have seen Elvis memorabilia in every one I have visited). When I went to the bathroom, I ran into a large collection of stuff from my girl Tina Turner. In fact, I was gone so long that John thought I got lost! .
They do accept credit cards. They do have a gift shop on the premises for those desired Hard Rock T-shirts and pins. You can go to www.hardrock.com for more information, to make reservations up to 30 days in advance, or to see how you can join one of the clubs (like the pin club!).
