Tolkien Trivia Night!

In celebration of the 75th anniversary of The Hobbit and in support of Save Our Springs BookPeople invites intrepid Middle-Earthlings to participate in this one-time only pub-style Tolkien Trivia contest!

Heads up, Middle-Earthlings - this September marks the most auspicious 75th anniversary of the release of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. Tonight we play host to an in-store Tolkien pub-style trivia contest for all Elves, Hobbits, Orcs and rangers. Read up on your LOTR trivia because this won't be an easy task - much like Bilbo's journey to kill Smaug, the arduous adventure to victory will be wrought with peril and ale drinking. We will supply grand rewards for the teams who finish in first, second and third place. Provisions will be generously provided by Austin's Pizza and Saint Arnold Brewing Company

We will accept up to 12 teams of 4 members each. Registration is required and costs $50 per team. A large portion of the proceeds will go to Save Our Springs. Registration is only available online. All participants must be at least 21 years of age or older. 

Spectators are welcome at this event (no registration necessary for spectating). Everyone is encouraged to attend the challenge in costume. Please email with any questions. 

Good luck!
