Kiss co-founders Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley visit their Overland Park restaurant

Kiss co-founders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are in town for a benefit at their new Rock & Brews restaurant on Thursday, a event that quickly sold out. But they also are scheduled to have a bite at the restaurant at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. It will be a casual way for fans to stop by to say hello and take photos.

Kiss co-founders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are in town for a benefit at their new Rock & Brews restaurant on Thursday, an event that quickly sold out.

Simmons and Stanley are co-founders of the Rock & Brews restaurants, which offer craft beers, premium wines and a full bar. The menu includes “opening acts” like chipotle chili cheese fries, Mexican street corn and Bavarian pretzels; “VIP” salads including Tuscan Kale and Tequila Sunrise steak; hand-crafted burgers and “Headliner” sandwiches like pulled pork or sesame-seed crusted seared Ahi; “frontrow“ specialty pizzas; and other items like fish and chips, Memphis-style baby back ribs, chocolate-filled French doughnuts with raspberry sauce, and “real” beer floats.

The Overland Park restaurant is in the new Prairiefire center at 5701 W. 135th St.

The first Rock & Brews opened in the Los Angeles area in 2009. Now there are three Rock & Brews there, one in Los Cabos, Mexico, and another in Maui. Restaurants also are in development in Arizona, Florida, New Mexico and Texas.
