Over-the-Rhine bar Longfellow is doing its annual Halloween costume change and transforming from its typical hip drinking destination into Longfellowship of the Ring, a Lord of the Rings-themed hobbit haunt.
Expect karaoke “in the fires or Mordor,” surrounded by homemade boulders, and $4 ales. Partygoers are encouraged to “wear elf ears,” “fight evil” and “smoke pipe-weed.” The best costumes will be awarded prizes.
9 p.m.-2:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 31. Free admission. Longfellow, 1233 Clay St., Over-the-Rhine, facebook.com/longfellowcinti.
