Lord of the Rings Trivia 9/19 at 8pm

LOTR.jpg

The Lord of the Rings is a film series consisting of three high fantasy adventure films directed by Peter Jackson. They are based on the novel The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. The films are subtitled The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003).

Considered to be one of the biggest and most ambitious film projects ever undertaken, with an overall budget of $281 million (some sources say $310-$330 million),[2] the entire project took eight years, with the filming for all three films done simultaneously and entirely in New Zealand, Jackson's native country.[3] Each film in the series also had special extended editions released on DVD a year after their respective theatrical releases. While the films follow the book's general storyline, they do omit some of the novel's plot elements and include some additions to and deviations from the source material..

There will be 5 rounds of Question based on the movies only, not the novels.

Prizes are as follows:

1st Place - $50 Gift Card plus other prizes TBA.

2nd Place - $25 Gift Card

3rd Place - $15 Gift Card

Best Dressed (in theme) - $25 Gift Card

Reserve your team by purchasing a ticket below. On the night, the cost of a ticket will be given back to you in the form of a gift card. Teams are to be no more than 6 people.

On Thursday 7/13, it marks 2 years since we signed on the dotted line and took over ownership of Kildare's. Naturally a party is in order to celebrate. This is your official invitation to come a join myself, Tom and Stephanie next Thursday night. I can think of nothing better then sharing an evening over a few pints with our valued friends and guests. There is no need to bring the invitation, just show up, and bring some friends. 

Not only are we celebrating our birthday, we will also be celebrating the 40th birthday of, and raising money for, our friend Erica Griffiths who is current fighting Stage 4 Breast Cancer. 

Here are the details:

  • $20 Open bar (Beer, wine and spirits) from 6-8pm as well as a great spread of food from Chef Stephanie Gray. A portion of the open bar and tips will be donated to Erica.
  • Entertainment will be Seamus Gallagher of Blackthorn fame and he will be playing from 6-9pm.
  • We will also be tapping a special collaboration keg (well actually two) from Levante Brewing who, with the help of my staff Bradley Loftus, Phil Scanlon, Bill Monteith and David Schaeffer have created an unfiltered Mango IPA just for us. We promise it is going to be delicious as all of their beer is.


We hope you can join us and celebrate all of these things in the comfort of our pub with a whole host of friends. This is an open invite to all to come and celebrate so feel free to bring whoever you wish.
