Some minor changes to the original plan.
To say that we have been getting a lot of questions asking if TORn will be doing anything special for the fans for the World Premiere of The Desolation of Smaug would be an understatement.
Well, we finally have plans in place, and here are the details!
On Sunday, December 1st, join TORn staffers and fans at The Grove in Los Angeles for a Quest to Erebor and dinner! Click here for The Grove website and directions. The Grove in LA.
At 5pm, we will all gather in the central square of The Grove for photo ops among their Hobbit Erebor display. They have a full throne that fans can get their pictures taken in! Coming in costume is highly encouraged!
WB has alerted us that The Grove is being de-Ereborized, so the fun Erebor decor will no longer be there next week. We are still going to advise you to get to the Grove by 5pm so you have time to find parking and take in all the Christmas Decor. More options below.
At 7pm, we will gather at the Marmalade Cafe (across the street from the gigantic American Girl Store) for dinner. This is a moot-style dinner, which means lots of mingling and fan fun!
The dinner is a set menu, and we ask that fans who wish to attend pay in advance through our convenient Paypal link below! Here is what will be served:
Your choice of one of four entrees: Chicken Picatta, Turkey Meatloaf, Fish and Chips or a Grilled Vegetable Salad (you do not need to choose your entree until you get there).
Optional starter salad of either a mixed green or caesar salad.
Optional dessert of either tira misu or bread pudding.
You can see the prices in our Paypal link below.
The room is limited to 50 people, so grab your dinner ticket while you can!
If you already paid for the Moot and have decided that you no longer wish to attend because Erebor is going, please email Sarumann@theonering.net for a full refund no later than Wednesday.
As an alternative, especially for those of you from out of town, let some of us LA locals show you around town for a few hours on Sunday. Head on over to our Facebook Event page to discuss a few options.
Bear in mind that this is Black Friday Weekend, and traffic and parking will be cumbersome to say the least, so be sure to figure in travel and parking time. Also, the Hollywood Christmas Parade is going on up in Hollywood that evening, a few miles away. If you are staying at a hotel in that area, really give yourself plenty of time to get out of Hollywood and down into Beverly Hills to arrive on time. Just look for the Tolkien fans taking over the Erebor Plaza.
We hope to see you there!
