James Thurber once suggested that “the most dangerous food is wedding cake.”  Maybe not…

Denny’s has just opened a new flagship location in Las Vegas– replete with wedding chapel.  And to make one’s special day even more special, “America’s Diner” is offering a special wedding menu, topped by “The King Stack” (“King” as in Elvis):  bacon, peanut butter and bananas between two slices of French toast finished off with a bacon vodka chaser.

As Denny’s spokesperson Frances Allen observed, “a normal Denny’s is not going to cut it in Vegas.”  Indeed, this newest outlet is located in the quickly-redeveloping Old Downtown district, where it’s neighbors include a zip line that carries visitors above street-level traffic, a restaurant that holds a Guinness Record for the highest-calorie burger, and what is being billed as the world’s largest gay nightclub.
