This is in Austin, and it's a costly event, but I know myself and at least one other member are weighing in on interested and considering it without being sold yet.
So, you know, why not toss it out to you guys, see if more people might be seriously interested and figure out whether a road trip should happen or be organized at least for those who do go?
Faithful friends from lands near and far! You've been waiting for it, and now we are happy to announce that the LORD OF THE RINGS HOBBIT TRILOGY FEAST is back for 2013!
Join us on Thanksgiving Day, Nov 28th and or Sunday, December 1at Alamo Ritz for an epic day of watching, eating, and celebrating Hobbit-style. We'll screen the entire LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy (the extended cuts of all three films!) all while eating our way through seven(!) courses of delicious food inspired by Tolkien's Middle Earth served at each Hobbit mealtime.
This is the feast to rule all feasts, the one you've been coming to (or heard your friends bragging about) for years. Tickets are on sale now, so act now!
There will be two options for the feast: A food and beverage option for $129 and a food only option will be $94. A few weeks before the screening you will receive an e-mail to specify if you would like a vegetarian option.
Also note that the feast offerings are the only food that will be served in the theater for the day. The regular menu will not be available during this screening.
