Eat like a Hobbit Day.

If you live near Austin, TX, check out Eat Like a Hobbit Day!  The party they host each year is held on the Saturday nearest Tolkien’s birthday.You’ll get to watch all 3 Lord of the Ring films (extended edition, of course) and eat the 7 traditional Hobbit meals throughout the day. The primary purpose of our party is to raise awareness about hunger in our local community and raise money for the organizations that are doing something to help.
