Thursday, Jan 3rd is J.R.R. Tolkien's Eleventy-First (plus 5) birthday.
As has become an annual tradition, other Tolkien fans and i will gather at the King's Head Pub in Santa Monica to lift a pint for the professor.
We're going to get together at 6:30PM, talk Tolkien, drink, and probably have horrid (and thus authentic) British pub food.
Do join us, if you wish!
