This unedited footage, taped by Dallas-based director Jim Ruddy for Entertainment Tonight, covers the grand opening of the Hard Rock Cafe in Houston on November 7, 1986. After the restaurant presents a $240,000 fundraising check to DePelchin Children’s Center, a local nonprofit organization, the audience enjoys a performance by Kenny Loggins of hits such as “This Is It” and “Wait a Little While.”
