Hard Rock Cafe Seattle!

With my obsession with Facebook I admit that my blog has taken a backseat to frequent posts. I can see at least one of you spitting hot coffee out of your nose as you read that. OK, so maybe frequent is a word I shouldn't use in this context.

I have an excuse! Honest, I swear! Don't hold it against me!

As many of you know, I spent most of 2009 out of the State and have been spending 2010 gearing up for the Grand Opening of the 21st Century! I am proudly one of the Managers at the brand new Hard Rock Cafe in Downtown Seattle. This place is going to be so bad-ass I can't even describe it!

Cutting-edge, state of the art technology, an amazing layout that covers 3 floors. Live shows several nights a week on our second level and an unprecedented view of the Pike Place Market from our roof top terrace. We've got a great staff to start things off right and trust me y'all, this place is going to be smokin hot!

After this long process I thought this time would never arrive. It's getting real now! They just hoisted the Hard Rock Sign and mounted it today. It's a Kurt Cobain Fender Mustang replica and the first inverted guitar sign in Hard Rock history.

I slapped on a hard hat and hung outside all morning waiting to get these shots. Check it out!

This shot gives some perspective on how close we are to the Pike Place Market...Just a Fish Throw away!

This nice guy was hanging out across the street smoking his pipe and watching the excitement. I felt compelled to grab a shot and he busted out in his best rocker pose for me.

Great shots brother! You have been gone so long and working so hard for this. I wish you continued success! I bet all the folks from McGraths will be coming down for a visit!
