Hankering for some hobbit fare? I am sure that you have spent practically all day watching the Lord of the Rings Trilogy at least once. Tell me honestly, after one of those occasions, didn’t you feel like having some of the food that those fuzzy little creatures had in the movie?
If you’re thinking that I may be taking this a little too far, wait till you hear about this tradition that the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has started. Soon after Return of the King came out, they came up with the idea of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy Hobbit Feast: almost 12 hours of LoTR goodness PLUS 7 meals. How do those little critters fit all that food and drink into their frames??? ((Source: Alamo Drafthouse Cinema))
Checking out their menu and the photos of the food, though, I totally understand how spending a whole day this way can be pleasurable. How does this sound?
