    "The real proof that this Denny's is trying to be the highest brow of all the 1,700 Denny's is the $300 take on the traditional Grand Slam breakfast. The Grand Cru Slam takes the storied combination of bacon, pancakes and eggs and adds a bottle of 2003 vintage Dom Perignon champagne. The meal also comes with a high five from the bartender."

    Yeah, I like orange juice with my eggs, not Dom. Sheesh. Maybe a nice mimosa at a nice brunch place, but not Denny's and not just plain champagne.

    After about age 18, I don't think I've been to a Denny's when I wasn't already drunk. We once bought a bottle off the bartender at around 3 AM to take home.

    The marketing 'genius' that came up with this should be fired. Clearly he is no Don Draper.

    PS I dined and ditched a 2am breakfast with friends in my 20s at Denny's. I still feel guilty.

    A high five from the bartender is included. Wow....WTF. How dumb.

    Yeah, he's high fiving me what an asshole I am for purchasing a $300 Denny's meal.
