Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons to Honor Local Veterans at New Rock & Brews Restaurant in Orlando on August 9th, 2017
The second Rock & Brews in the Orlando area opened in April, and Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will be at that new Lee Vista location for a private event charity fundraiser that will benefit Fisher House Orlando on August 9th, 2017. We were at the opening of the Oviedo location over two years ago as Stanley and Simmons were on hand for the grand opening, and had the opportunity to interview them. As the daughter of a veteran who lost his sight in Vietnam (and he has dedicated his life to helping other veterans), that aspect of the Rock & Brews mission means a lot to me - and the food is great too. Read below for the press release, and check out our Oviedo article from 2015 for a look at the grand opening and food. I added a couple of our videos from that opening below as well.

Orlando's Magical Dining Month is just around the corner, beginning August 25th and lasting through October 1st, 2017. We always visit a couple of restaurants or so during this time frame as restaurants serve 3-course meals for $35.00 per diner. Last year we were invited to the Four Seasons Orlando to review their offerings at Ravello (which is my personal favorite of the Four Seasons Orlando restaurants). We also took ourselves to Fogo de Chão, which is in the Orlando Eye area - it's not the first time we've been there for Magical Dining Month and that will probably be on our list this year as well. And for 2017, more Walt Disney World restaurants are included. Besides Ravello, which I highly recommend, restaurants include Jiko, The Wave, Paddlefish, Todd English's bluezoo, and STK at Disney Springs has a very attractive menu for the month - a petite filet mignon is right up my alley, and the steaks there are excellent. So check out the press release with a link to all the menus below and start planning your meal(s)out! Another bonus is that a dollar of each meal will go to one of two local nonprofit organizations, that information is below as well.
