Hard Rock Hotel's Wine Riffs Event Menu and Date Announced for August 2022 The Wine Riffs™ dinner series at Universal Orlando's Hard Rock Hotel are starting back up again, after a long hiatus. The popular (and pricey) multi-course experience pairs music, with food, with wine (and room lighting).

The colorful and moody lit meal does tend to feature higher end culinary and next tier wines — when compared to other, everyday "signature" restaurants at the various resorts in the Central Florida area.

The $200 per person (plus tax, plus gratuity) event is not for everyone, and I'd even go so far as to say, you really need to know a little bit about food and wine to fully appreciate the experience.

Here's what's on the menu for the upcoming Friday night, August 19th, 2022 event…
