5th Annual Tolkien Toast to be held in Denver - Xoanon @ 13:14 PST
The Misty Mountains Smial of the Tolkien Society will hold their 5th annual Tolkien Toast at the Celtic Tavern in downtown Denver on Wednesday January 3 rd, J.R.R. Tolkien's birthday. Enjoy birthday cake, share your favorite Tolkien reading and have a chance to win "The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide," donated by Houghton Mifflin, as well as other prizes!

Our annual gathering to toast "The Professor!" will run from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Celtic Tavern, 1801 Blake Street. Cake will be provided; dinner, appetizers and drinks can be ordered off the menu if desired. Some of our traditions include doing Tolkien readings, singing "Happy Birthday" in elvish, and toasting "The Professor" in Mandarin Chinese to remember our friends in Tol Eressea, our sister-smial in Taiwan.

Another tradition is our free raffle for door prizes. This year's grand prize is the new "The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide"

by Wayne Hammond & Christina Scull, graciously donated by our friends at Houghton Mifflin. Other prizes include dining certificates at local restaurants, TORn t-shirts and more!
