Celebrating Elvis' Birthday? Bruxie and the Melting Pot Have Options for You!

January 8 is a significant day if you are loyal to The King. Presley may not be around, but his memory lives on in the form of remembrance here, there and everywhere. Don't believe us? We found two restaurant mini-chains celebrating in similar ways.
Stuffed with bananas, peanut butter, bacon and honey, the Elvis Bruxie will be the featured waffle sandwich all day. If I paired with a milkshake, that technically covers my major food groups. Ugh. Now I'm craving waffle fries!
In addition to some classic waffle porn, The Melting Pot will be offering a comparable dessert. Named "A Big Hunk O Love", this is served as a treat or trick. Diners dressed up in serious Elvis attire can order a sweet combination of white chocolate, banana slices, peanut butter and bacon bits without charge. It's only a trick for everyone else, as they will be expected to pony up $8.95 for their order. This special is only available from 5 - 10 p.m. at Orange County Melting Pot restaurants. So where should I meet you?
