This week’s featured events:

Crickhollow welcomes all brave enough to attempt the sixth annual Bullroarer Took Day Pub Crawl, starting on Sunday at 12pm EDT.  Elevenses in the Bird & Baby will wrap up early to allow for visits to every pub in the Shire, with time for ale, tunes, and contests at each stop.  The group will rush over to Hobbiton’s Ivy Bush for a cosmetic contest judged by Nathrien of Material Middle Earth and Gloredh of Wandering around Arda.  The Breakfast Club will perform festive music throughout the competition.

Next everyone will amble over to Brockenborings for a brew-a-thon at the Plough and Stars. Cooks are invited to prepare their finest brew and food pairing for a panel of judges. Contestants decide whether to come prepared or use the crafting facilities along the way, but the best way to sway the judges is with a flashy presentation.  The crawl’s next stop is at the Golden Perch in Stock where the pub trivia master will be crowned. They then scoot over to the Floating Log in Frogmorton for a scavenger hunt.

Any survivors will make their way to the afterparty in Hobbiton’s Green Dragon, where they’ll celebrate the completion of our pub crawl with music and dancing.

All events are listed in Eastern Daylight Time (-4 GMT)/server time, but an additional time zone is listed for EU server events.  Please note that Europe does not switch their clocks until March 27, so the current offset between US and UK time is 4 hours instead of 5.

You may add events or post corrections in the comments section, but the fastest and best way to get it on this page is to submit a form.  I’m always open to feedback and suggestions, both here and through the submissions form, so let me know if there’s something we should feature.  Thanks for reading!

A lone wanderer arriving in the Shire. A population terrified of the mysterious happenings at the local inn. Some decidedly furry spring singers. Welcome to a magical night when old tales come to life…the Haunting of the Bridge Inn, Sunday April 3rd at 2:30pm EDT (7:30pm UK) on Laurelin.

The Brandy Badgers will present a musical based on the works of Bruce Springsteen at the Bridge Inn near the Brandywine Bridge on the Shire side.  It will be a hobbit-preferred event, but big folk are welcome to hang out in the back.


Looking back:

The Bird and Baby Yard Party celebrated Bullroarer Took on St. Patrick’s Day with poetry, music, and a re-enactment of the Battle of the Greenfields.  Take a look at Lina Willowood‘s picture of the start of the battle:
