The Grey Havens Group celebrated Hobbit Day at Dickens Tavern and Opera House in Longmont, Colorado. There was an epic Trivia Battle of Five Armies in which many prizes were won. There was face painting, crafts, games, live music, “fireworks,” a raffle and more than one friendly hobbit to greet our guests.
The full Dickens menu was available along with Shire Specials including: Stolen Mushrooms, Whatz Taterz, Shire Shepherds Pie, Green Dragon Ale and Entdraught. We even had free birthday cake and mathoms for everyone to honor the birthdays of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. Those hobbits really know how to party!
Listen to Claywise and Badgaladriel talk about this event on Boulder’s KGNU radio. The discussion begins at around the 20 minute mark with Claywise reading Bilbo’s famous farewell speech.
