Hard Rock Hotels will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, often considered one of the greatest events in music history, with special commemorations at its hotels. Some highlights include:
Hard Rock Hotel San Diego is serving free Pot Brownies to all guests checking in August 14-16, 2009. The hotel’s signature restaurant Maryjane’s Coffee Shop has been serving the chocolate desserts since opening and in an irreverent nod to the infamous Woodstock counter-culture, all hotel guests will be treated to complimentary brownies, a la mode of course, during the anniversary weekend.
Since the announcement, the hotel has created quite a “buzz” as word passes through the community, with many people wondering how the luxury property can get away with serving the special treats. The truth is: The warm, baked-to-order brownies are aptly named for the charming ceramic pots in which they are baked and not for any secret ingredients.
