Sausage or pot roast...pot roast or sausage... [In reply to] Can't Post

I sit here with a Denny's Hobbit menu, a placemat, and six trading cards!

Geeky Son and I saw Wreck It Ralph (a delight for those with knowledge of the old video arcade games, and as G.S. said, they did their research well), then headed to the Denny's near the cinemas.

Curious about the sausage, I ordered the Shire Sausage Skillet. It arrived - without the sausage! The waitress looked at it and said "Wait, where's the..." and immediately took it back for the "missing link". The 'taters, onions, peppers and 'shrooms were their standard fare for their skillet dishes, what's nice is they use red potatoes and fresh mushrooms. The sausage was pleasant, just slightly spiced with herbs, with sage being the most noticeable (yum).

G.S. had The Ring Burger. When it arrived, he proclaimed, "It's Elvish!" - meaning, there were three huge rings piled atop the bun! Laugh I noted that they had not been sullied by the Dark Lord, whereupon he added that they would have gone nicely with some "sweet and Sauron" sauce. He deemed the burger most delicious.

He started considering meals that hadn't made it onto the menu. Why no "Gollum's Fish Fry" - "so juicy sweeet!"? Probably would make folks queasy, I replied. He next rattled off "Denethor's Dessert Flambé", "Boromir's Swiss Cheese Melt", and "Forbidden Pool Fish Stew". Definitely no winners there.

He picked up the Lone-Lands Campfire Cookie Milk Shake to go, and let me have a taste. Or two. Or three. It was rich! Then we found that the waitress liked to put "extra ice cream" in them when she made them. Smile She'd given us our card packs at the table, then handed us a third when we paid. (We left her a nice tip.)

No Bilbo - but I do have Thorin, Gollum, Balin, Dwalin, Fili, Kili, two coupons for Pancake Puppies, and $5.00 off our next visit.

And we were not the only geeks there. A family in the booth next to ours was taking a long time selecting from their menu, it was obvious they were having a lot of fun with it!

I know we'll be back before the promotion ends. Frodo's pot roast, next time!

Oh, the advertisement on the placemat? "Pie, more precious to a hobbit than any Ring." You can purchase slices, or a whole Hobbit Harvest Pie: pumpkin or pecan.

Where's Darkstone?
