Celebrity restaurants tend to flame out in the Sacramento area, as the closures of Sammy Hagar and Guy Fieri restaurants in recent years attest.
Those places did not have a guy who spits fire behind them. KISS frontman Gene Simmons, a founding partner in casual dining chain Rock & Brews, has announced plans to open a Vacaville location in November. Rock & Brews, which started in 2012 in El Segundo, touts a selection of 50-plus beers on tap, pub-style food and a rock ’n’ roll ambiance. via Sacramento Bee
