Rainforest Cafe is a themed restaurant chain. The first location opened in the Mall of America in Minnesota, USA on February 3, 1994.

Each Rainforest Cafe restaurant is designed to depict some features of a tropical rainforest, including plant growth, mist, waterfalls and figures of rainforest animals. Some of the animals are animatronic and start making animals noises and move.  My favorite part of these restaurants is when there is a 'rain storm' inside.  All the lights dim and there is 'lightning' and then it starts to rain inside the restaurant.  Not on the customers, only in parts by the walls. But it is very fun.  Our family loved to eat here every time we visited Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Johnny Cash
Forever a first class rate

John R. "Johnny" Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author. Although he is primarily remembered as a country icon, his songs and sound spanned other genres including rock and roll, blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal won Cash the rare honor of induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
