guy

Guy Fieri, chef, restaurateur and cookbook author, will be joining Carnival Cruise Lines, Texas’ largest cruise operator and the Official Cruise Line of the Dallas Cowboys, for a Carnival Tailgate Takeover at the October 19th Cowboys game!

Select Carnival ships feature Guy’s Burger Joints as an on-board dining option. Guy will be at the 10/19 game, visiting with tailgaters and hosting a Burger Battle as part of the cruise line’s pre-game activities that also include a concert by country music superstars Rascal Flatts!

As part of Carnival’s multi-year partnership with the Dallas Cowboys, the cruise line’s “Fun Crew” tours the stadium lots on branded golf carts at all home games, offering exciting prizes to fans, including the chance to win one of many cruise vacation giveaways. At the October 19 game, Fieri will climb aboard with the crew to meet fans. He’ll also host Carnival’s Gameday Burger Battle, in which local contestants, working with chefs from Legends Hospitality, will create their best tailgate burger. Fieri will choose a grand-prize winner who will receive a Caribbean cruise for two on a Carnival Fun Ship.

Fieri came onboard with Carnival Cruise Lines in 2011 to create the best burgers at sea in poolside eateries on select Carnival ships. Carnival Triumph, one of Carnival’s two Texas-based ships, features a Guy’s Burger Joint, as does the recently updated Carnival Freedom, which will be the third year-round Fun Ship to call Galveston home beginning in February 2015. The complimentary roadside-themed eateries offer guests fresh-off-the-grill burgers Guy’s way, a make your own toppings bar and hand-cut fries.

When Carnival Freedom is deployed to Galveston in 2015, it will join Carnival Triumph and Carnival Magic to offer a variety of Caribbean cruise itineraries. Next year the line will carry more than 600,000 passengers annually from Texas – more than any other cruise line.

Be sure to check out the Carnival LIVE cruises! During your cruise to The Bahamas, Cozumel or Catalina Island, California, you’ll have the opportunity to see a band you love ON the ship in a theater venue. There’s even a VIP opportunity to meet the band for a photo!  To get your Carnival LIVE tickets, first choose your desired sailing date and book your cruise as usual. Then, click here to purchase your concert tickets online. Note that you must already have your cruise booked to purchase tickets.

Hard Rock International is rockin’ and rolling out a new band of cool characters to help make your little rock stars’ experience at Hard Rock Cafes and Hard Rock Hotels totally awesome!

We LOVE taking the kids to Hard Rock Cafe, whether we’re in town or on vacation…we know we can get a consistent ALWAYS delicious meal and you can’t beat the ambiance. We just visited the Hard Rock Cafe in New Orleans 2 months ago and the kids (and the big people!), love it like always.

Kids who dine at Hard Rock Cafe locations will be given the VIP treatment with Hard Rock Roxtars swag and new healthy menu options, such as Skiddley’s “Not-so-diddley” chicken breast and “Twisted ‘n tasty” cavatappi pasta.

Plus, children who stay at select Hard Rock Hotel locations with their families can rock to their own rhythm, catch a live Hard Rock Roxtars performance or take part in musical learning activities!

The Hard Rock Roxtars need your help, more specifically, the help of your little ones as Cafes nationwide are looking for pint-sized rock star look-a-likes for their Halloween costume contest, “Does Your Child Look Like a Rock Star?”

For one night during the “Does Your Child Look Like a Rock Star?” contest, kids eat free at a Hard Rock Cafe with a paying adult, and will have the chance to win a Hard Rock Cafe gift card or a 2015 birthday party for eight of their closest band members and entourage!
