From insatiable brunches to late-day bounties, Hobnob offers grub that uses local ingredients and the power of hand-spicing and hand-cooking. Brunch options include Beezly's flapjacks served under freshly whipped cream with pepper bacon or sausage patty ($8.75) or the rancher's breakfast with gunpowder crusted sirloin, two eggs, and flapjacks or french toast ($16).

Mix your food and your drink with Indiana pale ale and buttermilk fried onion rings (with homemade barbecue sauce, $7). Hobnob's heavy-hitting sandwiches and entrees are enough to hob nobs of all sizes with such flavors as the balsamic roasted portobello mushroom cap ($10.75) and the slow-roasted corned beef or turkey rueben (with crisp sauerkraut, $8.75). For meaty lovers, there’s the overnight-infused sizzle of the chipotle baby back ribs ($16 half rack, $22 full) and the explosive force of the gunpowder sirloin (rubbed with garlic peppercorn “gunpowder” juice, $22). Round off your meal with a slick cocktail such as the Scarlett O’Hara ($8.25) or The Pink ($8).

How to Hobnob
Hobnobbing involves socializing, and nobody is better than celebrities. Here are some tips to help you hobnob with the famous:
- Most celebrities are fantastically tall because they have to fill large movie screens. Do not stare or mention their obscene height.
- Celebs love to stay in character all the time and will often shoot guns or begin crying at inopportune moments.
- Don’t bother famous actors when they are with their families because most celebrity children are really foxes dressed in people costumes.
- Delaware has no sales tax, which makes celebrities go gaga!
