Slam One Down For Free

Are you hungry for breakfast?  Are you poor (or at least cheap)?  Good news!

Just in time for the recession, all Denny's restaurants across the nation are offering their Grand Slam breakfast for free tomorrow only from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  That's two pancakes, two eggs, two sausage links and two strips of bacon -- for free.  Sure, it's no Humongous Bucket of Eggs and Meat, but it's a free hot meal!  You can also add a side of hashbrowns for only $0.99.  Oh, and your coffee and orange juice are regular price.  Don't complain, Jack Benny; you can do what my tightwad friend does and order a bowl of lemons with your ice water.  Take some sugar packets, et voila!  Free lemonade!  (Seriously, please don't do that.)

No word on how Denny's is going to track how many Grand Slams you've consumed as you eat your way, Hutt-like, across the city for free (don't act like you hadn't thought of it).  With something like 50 Denny's in the greater Houston area, you're going to have to get started right at 6:00 a.m. with the mall walkers if you want to hit them all.  Then again, that's about 100 eggs and 100 pancakes in one day...  You might want to discreetly pack some Tupperware.
