You've got to hand it to those hobbits, they sure know how to eat. As any self respecting fan can tell you, it takes a lot of fuel to drive the hobbit engine. That's why they eat seven times a day. Exective chef John Bullington has created a seven meal feast, one for each of the different hobbit mealtimes (1st breakfast, 2nd breakfast, elevensies, etc.), spread out over the twelve hours it takes to watch the entire middle earth trilogy. Interpreted from actual meals referenced in the books, the Hobbit Feast is the ultimate Lord of the Rings sensory experience.

Now that sounds just cool as hell. Really, just being able to watch all three movies in a theater back to back to back is pretty damn spiffy. I would jump at that oppertunity if I could find a local place that was doing it. Add to it the fact that they're serving hobbit meals is just amazing. It's like some extended form of dinner theatre.
Looks like they were charging 88 dollars a person for this deal. Not bad considering it's around 12 hours of entertainment and they feed you at every turn.
