Gene Simmons made a recent an appearance at Rock & Brews in Chesterfield, Missouri. He was there to meet and greet fans and present a Rock & Brews scholarship donation on behalf of a local veterans organization. I was there and I captured a few clips on my handy dandy iPhone!

 

 

Gene was super cool and made a point to hit every table in the restaurant. He was there for about two hours talking to fans and signing Kiss memorabilia. It was cool to see the records, posters and pictures that the fans brought to the event.

 

 

Rock & Brews is described by the company as "an energized dining and entertainment concept offering affordable, high quality American comfort food and a broad selection of craft brews." I didn't think the food was great, but the menu is pretty cool!!

I was able to say hello and shake hands with the legendary rocker. He was very sincere and it was a pleasure to chat with him. I was hoping to conduct an interview but it wasn't in the cards. Gene had another appearance later that day.

It was a fun day and I'm glad I was able to attend. Even though I only got a few minutes with Mr. Simmons, it was still pretty awesome. Rock & Brews is a pretty cool concept, check them out the next time your in Missouri!
