HARD ROCK CAFE Launches the WORLD BURGER TOUR!!! | Burgers and Bourbon with BJ Coleman

HARD ROCK CAFE Launches the WORLD BURGER TOUR!!!





When I did a year abroad during my college years, I practically lived at the HARD ROCK CAFE in Madrid, Spain!   On the days when tortillas and paella lacked desired sustenance, Hard Rock Cafe became my everyday go-to for delicious burgers, pulled pork sandwiches and traditional french fries!  So my devoation to this celebrity-inspired chain is unparalleled, and when I heard about their  WORLD BURGER TOUR I immediately wanted to share the good news with you!

Hard Rock’s Local Legendary Burgers, which showcase the flavor and ingredients of Hard Rock locations across the globe, are packing their bags (or buns) and making stops at Hard Rock Cafes throughout the U.S. as part of the new World Burger Tour.  For the first time, guests now have a backstage pass to sample unique burgers from five continents – cocktails as well!

These unique burger “acts” from five continents will take center stage at Hard Rock Cafes in the United States beginning on Friday, May 1 through Tuesday, June 30, 2015.

Hard Rock gives chefs at their cafes the freedom to create a unique Local Legendary Burger that captures the local flavors of their city and is only available at that cafe location…until now! More than 150 local burgers were evaluated by Hard Rock’s culinary team, with fan favorites selected to star on a limited-time World Burger Tour menu.  From the Java Lava Legendary Burger in Seattle to the Schnitzel Legendary Burger in Germany, some sizzling headliners heading out on Hard Rock Cafe’s World Burger Tour include:
