The Misty Mountains Smial Tolkien Society group is gathering Thursday evening, January 3rd, for our annual Tolkien Toast. We’ll be meeting at The Celtic Tavern, 1801 Blake St. in downtown Dever at 6:30 p.m. As always, we’ll be reading our favorite Tolkien passages and drawing for prizes. We also sing “Happy Birthday” in elvish, and toast “The Professor!” both in English and in Mandarin Chinese to honor our ‘sister smial,’ Tol Eressea, in Taiwan. $3.00 per adult (over 18) will help pay for the room. Food and drink can be ordered from the menu. Children are welcome! See you there!
