Demand For Free Grand Slams Overwhelms Denny's

Joseph snapped this picture of people mobbing his local Denny’s in Provo, Utah to get a free Grand Slam Breakfast today. He writes, “It’s so packed the parking lot is full and people are parking along the street.” Esther says that at her local Denny’s they were so busy employees were handing out rain checks. She spoke with some people in line who had been to two other locations previously and had been simply turned away, without rainchecks. Which means, yes, people are willing to drive to three different Denny’s just to get a coupon for a free chain diner breakfast. Silly, sad, hungry America.
