HARD ROCK CAFÉ on the strip is easily found.

Just north of MGM, and across the street from Park 2000, this 3-story behemoth building beckons you to come out and play.  Indoor and outdoor seating, plenty of party rooms, and a giant deck overlooking the strip, this is one big party atmosphere.

They have previews of their new menu items including exquisite milkshakes in old milk bottles, loaded with whip cream and a churro chunk on the top in cookies and cream or strawberry cheesecake.

Yes, I had to have one.  Their biggest new item is the actual 24-carat gold hamburger with a really thin slice of pure gold. The burger is loaded and has a side of the tastiest fries around.  Another burger is loaded with bacon and onion rings, the slider plate has 3 good-sized pieces, and the wings are great.  Plenty of salads, which I have a favorite one, spinach, fresh beets, goat cheese, and mandarin oranges.  Caesars is marvelous too. Always plenty of music going.

There are both elevators and escalators to reach the floors.  Everywhere you look are original guitars, costumes from famous movies and rock bands, and plenty of memorabilia. 

There were a firefighter and police group present yesterday and they were having an all you can eat slider contest surrounded by lovely showgirls.  Parking is just north of the venue.  If you are walking down the strip, it’s easy to get to.  Seriously, they have now added breakfasts.

Open from 7:30-12:30 A.M.  702-733-7625.  3771 S. Las Vegas strip.
