Over the last four decades and counting, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of Kiss have elevated making money while making music into an art form — and as evidenced by their latest business venture, their partnership shows no signs of slowing down.

Simmons and Stanley are joining up with Rock & Brews, a growing restaurant chain that, as the company’s website puts it, “celebrates great rock & roll, beers, burgers, pizza and more all in our backstage beergarden.” Sounds like a pretty good fit for Kiss’s music, right? Stanley certainly thinks so; he’s quoted in the press release announcing the venture as saying, “I am honored to join the Rock & Brews lineup, and am especially excited for our first international location in Los Cabos. Rock & Brews is truly a unique concept that embraces music and concert-style social gatherings like no other dining venue.”

The Los Cabos location Stanley referenced is due to open with a grand gala that will “welcome about 400 Kiss fans from around the world” on March 22 and 23 — at least, the Kiss fans who can afford to plunk down for tickets. The band is offering a ‘Kiss Army Rock & Brews package’ to the truly dedicated, which offers deluxe two-night accommodations for two, a private reception and photo op with Stanley and Simmons, a breakfast buffet, and…a t-shirt. The price? $749 plus tax.

If that’s a little more than you’re prepared to spend right now, take heart; the press release goes on to note that Rock & Brews will be opening new restaurants in Los Angeles and Redondo Beach, Calif.; Maui, Hawaii; and Kansas City, Mo. Maybe the price will come down for that Kiss Army package at some of those other locations.
