Hard Rock Cafe

A few days ago I was driving along I-40 West and I saw a billboard that said Hard Rock Cafe and got a little excited. I actually kind of like Hard Rock Cafe. I've been to a few and the thought of Oklahoma City having one sounded cool. So I went looking for it. Couldn't find it.

It turns out, as I find out yesterday, that I did not completely read the sign. It is an ad for the Hard Rock Tulsa...not OKC.

What the hell is that about?!?

Why does Tulsa get a Hard Rock Cafe and not Oklahoma City. Why in the hell did the geniuses that came up with that idea pass up OKC for Tulsa? Seriously? This really kind of ticks me off. I don't understand what is so special about Tulsa that gives them the right to have a Hard Rock and not OKC. I've been to Tulsa. Many times. Nothing special. Nothing, in my opinion, deserving of something that OKC does not have.

I have been to the Hard Rock Cafe in Chicago, in Washington DC, in Dallas, in New Orleans, and in Singapore. I would have liked the idea of being able to go to the Hard Rock Cafe in Oklahoma City. The city certainly deserves one. But no, I would have to drive to Tulsa to get to one.

Well forget that, I'll spend the extra gas and time and go to the one in Dallas again if I want to go.

What a crock!


  1. It's just part of a casino, Otter.

    And I'm in OKC an average of twice weekly, an' it ain't nothin' to write home about... :)

  2. I used to frequent the Tulsa area back when I was playing in bands. I don't know what it is like now but from what I remember, I was not a big fan of Tulsa.

    I'd choose OKC over Tulsa every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
