Monday 23 May 2011: Prepping for Towel Day at The Hobbit Cafe

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on May 23rd, 2011

Martin Freeman has been tapped to play Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming movie adaptation of The Hobbit.  This brings together three beloved works of geekdom, as Freeman also plays John Watson, M.D., in the BBC’s modern version of the Sherlock story, and he played Arthur Dent in the (somewhat regrettable) movie version of THHGTTG.

Wednesday (25 May) is Towel Day, so come along to celebrate this “elementary” convergence at the Hobbit Cafe, 2243 Richmond Avenue.  Even though there will be no Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters on offer, all the froods will be there.  See you at 8 PM.

See you there around 8 PM.

Monday, 21 June 2010: Midyear’s Day at The Hobbit Cafe

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on June 21st, 2010

image by flickr user (nutmeg)According to some reckonings of the Shire (Hobbit) calendar, today marks the either the first or second day of one of the year’s two most important festivals, Lithe.  I’m sure I don’t really know how to celebrate it–except to eat and drink at that most Hobbitish of restaurants,  The Hobbit Cafe at 2243 Richmond Avenue.  While it’s true that not all who wander are lost, try to be there around 8 PM and let us know if you’re planning on being there so we can reserve the proper table.

Not all those who wander are lostn

A Return to Middle Earth or at least hobbit cafe houstonThe Hobbit Cafe, 2243 Richmond Avenue @ 8PM. After our recent trip, that we enjoyed very much, we were impressed by the very nice selection of beer and tasty food.

This goes without saying but please remember to bring cash and be nice to your waitstaff, we are after all treating a smallish restaurant like a pub.

Also please let us know if you’re coming by posting a comment so we can arrange for enough seating.

Monday, 1st February 2010: Back to the Shire at the Hobbit Cafe

CC license 2.0 image courtesy http://www.flickr.com/photos/duststorm/It’s no secret that Hobbits love beer.  Not surprisingly, The Hobbit Cafe, 2243 Richmond Avenue, has a fairly nice selection: a series of taps are largely rotators, with a Saint Arnold Seasonal usually available, as well as at least one Belgian and one Pale, plus a decent bottle selection. And yes, they come in pints–and larger!

Come join us around 8 PM for a pint and possibly a Bilbo-esque late supper of a Smaug sandwich.  But keep yer pipe-weed smoking on the porch: this is Houston, after all.
