Beginning Nov. 6 through early January, Denny’s will roll out a Hobbit-inspired menu featuring such mysteries as “Hobbit Hole Breakfast,” “Frodo’s Pot Roast Skillet,” “Gandalf’s Gobble Melt” and the “Build Your Own Hobbit Slam,” which includes a helping of Shire Sausage — presumably just regular sausage, but who knows?
Why Denny’s? The chain told AdAge hobbits are all about comfort food — they eat two breakfasts, after all — so Denny’s was an obvious fit.
Here’s a preview of the menu, which you can start enjoying ahead of The Hobbit’s release on December 14:
- About a dozen people were critically injured when a vehicle plowed into a crowd during a Mardi Gras parade on Saturday, New Orleans police said.
- Tom Perez has been named chair of the Democratic National Committee. He was Obama's Labor Secretary.
