The Hobbit Elevensies event

The USF in Lakeland Library and Student Government are cordially inviting you to take part inĀ The Hobbit Elevensies.

Friday, September 21 @ 11 AM
USF Lakeland Student Government (LTB 1154)

Celebrate hobbit-style the 75th anniversary of the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel The Hobbit.

Inspired by the ideals cherished by hobbits everywhere – camaraderie, companionship and, of course, a love of good food -The Hobbit Elevensies is your chance to pop the kettle on, sit down with friends and colleagues, and take a moment to eat, drink and be merry.

This is a potluck event. Bring your favorite breakfast, brunch or lunch items, or favorite beverage – in enough quantity to share.

* What are elevensies? Well, in the Prologue to The Fellowship of the Ring, hobbits are described as such: “And laugh they did, and eat, and drink, often and heartily, being fond of simple jests at all times, and of six meals a day (when they could get them).”

So those (actually seven) meals are: breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies, luncheon, tea, dinner and supper (does not include snacks.) Elevensies is the 11AM meal.
