Sad news to report, the Cardiff HRC has suddenly closed, just 1 day shy of its 7th anniversary.
I always think HRC doesn’t make the most out of these sudden closures. I mean, celebrate the 7th anniversary anyway – advertise the hell out of it as a wrap party and go out rocker style! Give thanks to the staff (let them get some “you’ll soon be out of a job pity tips”) and let the HRC fans and collectors have a final night out at their HR cafe. Believe me, if there was any merchandise on the shelf yesterday, a lot of it would have been sold at the ba bye party. But maybe that’s just me. Hwyl fawr Cardiff!
In happier news, according to the hardrockcafe.com website, Sydney is getting another try at a cafe, which will open sometime in 2011. Tampa will also get a cafe to go along with the Casino and Hotel. St. Maarten has swung open its doors – the Rock Shop anyway! – the cafe will open sometime by the end of the year.
