Beer and beef at the Hard Rock

It's the boyfriend's birthday tomorrow so as a pre-birthday treat I took him for lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe yesterday. Great music, alcohol, memorabilia and burgers: the perfect date for us. Although skipping breakfast and having pre-lunch coronas is pretty dangerous, I was a bit drunk by the time my food arrived..

We had the Legendary Hickory BBQ Burger, fries and twisted mac and cheese. I would recommend, best burger I've ever had. The food came really quickly and we were right in front of the music screens - they play music videos on big screens around the resteraunt, surrounded by old rock memorabilia so there is plenty to look at (and sing along to..).

After eating we popped across the road to 'The Vault', which is a mini memorabilia museum in an old royal bank vault. There was a lot in there, old guitars that belonged to Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Slash, Bowie etc. My favourite was the original lyrics to Instant Karma, with JL's handwritten amendments - so awesome to see how it was originally written - and how weird it would have sounded with out some of the additions.

So much fun, good times <3
