The Bird and Baby staff hosts a weekly yard party at the inn, ending “when the last guest leaves”. All good people are welcome. Sometimes there are visiting bands or other planned events, at other times, entertainment is provided by you, the patrons!

When there is a scheduled event, feel free to play music, tell stories or whatever during breaks, but we ask that you yield the stage to the evening’s main act at their discretion.

Free Beer and Mystery Food (self-service at the tables in the Yard). Please note that eating of the Mystery Food is at your own risk.

GDF 10th anniversary after-party @ Bywater
May 18 @ 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM

We’ve celebrated the 10th anniversary of Green Dragon Friday…
Now it is time to usher in the next ten years.
Welcome to the GDF anniversary after-party! Bring all yer hobbit friends!

Date: Friday May 18
Time: 7:30PM UK (2:30PM servertime)
Location: Green Dragon Inn, Bywater, The Shire, Laurelin server

Some heads might still be spinning after the anniversary main party. There’s no better cure than to go to the after-party, though. Because this will be a Green Dragon Friday much like the regular ones, with entertainment, news and gossip. And, hopefully, a new lecture too! Miss Anerra will be hosting, so yer all in grand and capable hands.

Welcome hobbits, to help start the new decade of Green Dragon Fridays!

Please note that Green Dragon Friday is an in-character roleplaying event for hobbits. Travelling dwarves are welcome as always, but we ask that men and elves do not attend the event. This is done to keep things hobbit-centric and somewhat appropriate to the lore.
