Situated inside the cozy confines of The Village at Squaw Valley, Rocker's a cold-weather hangout flush with super-saturated Winter X-Games-y art and giant communal tables -- both normal height and high top (in case you’re not sure how to sit down in ski boots) -- plus floor-to-ceiling windows to keep the lodge-like interior filled with sun, unlike Sun, who's usually just filled with Jin.
Anchored by a monstrous 5lb all-beef “G.N.A.R. Burger” (topped w/ pulled chicken, pulled pork, coleslaw, and onion rings), the menu's got bowls of mac/chili, sandos, non-5lb burgers (for losers!), and share-sies like grilled honey lemon & garlic chicken tenders, or XXX Hot Wings, also the name of the banned-from-TV episode where Helen takes an unexpected turn for the graphic.
If you're thirsty, check out the outdoor taps or stool up to the full bar, which's equipped with 12 drafts (including the house-exclusive Rocker Blonde) and an assortment of tummy-warmers like the definitely-a-good-idea Headwall Express Punch Bowl (boasting 38oz of “innocuous punch”), and the rummy, awesomely monikered Leg Spreader, also the name of the banned-from-TV episode where Helen takes an unexpected turn for the graphic. That floozie.
And if you want to make everyone jealous of your super-sweet skills, Rocker also has an iMac station where you can edit their GoPro helmet-cam footage and upload it directly to YouTube, so just sort of haphazardly create a plot-less video that takes place outside and makes very little sense, and you too could have a massively successful show on ABC.
