        Too funny. How about these: http://www.yelp.com/biz/al-and-beas-m...?

        Would they "cut" it? :)

          Love it. Did you try any of LA Denny's Smaug-themed eats? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/grubgra...

          The vodka in a paper bag from Leaving Las Vegas (at the Tanked to the Gills in the Alley - Los Angeles).

            How about one tiny little wafer-thin mint from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life and a chocolate covered mint-stick from LittleJohn's in the Farmer's Market: http://www.yelp.com/biz/littlejohns-e...

                    I'm sure a few places have served Timpano from Big Night, but I can't say that I've seen it as a regular menu item.

                      I'm trying to remember, I'm sure mine has something to do with cake, meringue, ice cream, petit fours, or something like that or even baked Alaska. They had baked Alaska in a James Bond movie but it turned out to be fake. It was a bomb. Rather, it was a bomb that was a bomb!

                      Oh, in "a Christmas Carol" the meal at the end for Christmas, had roast goose, English steamed pudding, and I know what that's like it's fantastic. Yummy!
