We're just two weeks away from Tolkien in Vermont at UVM, and we couldn't be more excited!
Not only is the conference practically at our back door, not only will it bring together some of the biggest Tolkien nerds from around the country, not only does it focus on Ricky's single biggest area of nerdom (philology), but...
The After-Party is at the Mead Hall!!!
Check out the Facebook event here, and get ready to geek out on April 7th from 6-9!
We're getting all geared up for our Viking Brunch this weekend!
Coffee Chaos will be canned tomorrow, Cold Brewtus is polishing up their espresso machine, and Ricky is pouring over textbooks to get ideas for historically-accurate brunch foods.
The good news is, brunch seems to be a a modern contrivance that was developed to suit the post-revelry needs of Saturday-evening carousers, which means that the event is pretty open to interpretation.
So, what we're going to do is develop a menu based on our normal rules (which you can learn about here and here), that primarily features dishes too complicated to serve on our regular menu.
We're talking shrimp sautéed in clarified butter, seared cheese, herring and pickle skewers, and a ton of cocktails specially designed for the occasion.
What cocktails? Cocktails like the Copenhagen 75, Ricky's single favorite drink he's ever invented.
See you on Sunday!

Groennfell Meadery is Vermont’s premier craft meadery. Inspired by Old Norse legends, brewed with extraordinary ingredients, Groennfell’s meads are unlike anything you’ve had before. Crisp, clean, and astoundingly drinkable, the only way to explain any one of Groennfell’s meads is to try one yourself.
