My wife and I caught wind of the fact that one of the local wineries, Barnard Griffin, does a trivia night each Tuesday. It seemed as good a way as any to celebrate 'Nothing to Do Night', with a little Date Night.
Unfortunately for us, the topic for the night was Tolkien...J.R.R. Tolkien. It's unfortunate because while I enjoyed the Lord of the Ring movies, I can't say I'm a Tolkien fan...especially not in the way that I am Heinlein, or MacLean fan. I actually KNOW stuff about those people. Hell...my wife and I knew it was going to be a rough night when we couldn't answer the first question(What does J.R.R. stand for?).
That didn't stop us from having a good time though. We split up a bottle of Riesling(it was a hot day!), and then we split a few appetizers(meatballs and a tasty-ass white beans and roasted fennel hummus) and a nice Caesar salad. We didn't come close to winning the non-existent prize, but I got the best consolation prize, getting to bring the prettiest girl there home with me.
