When we saw that Denny's offered a Hobbit-themed Menu to coincide with the release of the major motion picture, we knew we had to check it out. What could be more enchanting to a J.R.R. Tolkien fan than hearty meals which evoke the rustic grandeur of The Shire?

As if you actually needed an excuse to have "second breakfast," Denny's -- home of the mozzarella stick grilled cheese sandwich
-- will be offering up a new menu inspired by The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
starting on November 6. (The movie itself opens December 14.) Among the eleven Tolkien-themed items are Bilbo's Berry Smoothie (with real bilboberries!), the Hobbit Hole Breakfast (which sounds filthy and is probably delicious), Radagast's Red Velvet Pancake Puppies (because if there's anything Radagast is known for, it's red velvet, pancakes, and puppies), and Gandalf's Gobble Melt (which I'm sure Ian McKellen thinks is hilarious
). AdAge has a page from the menu
as well as a nerd-baiting TV spot. (via Blastr
