Each woodland faun and goblin king will be dining on heirloom greens with the cursed blood oranges, toasted pecans, and roquefort, the finest of stewed ovine (or braised short ribs) or vegetarian option for our elven friends, finished with the legendary lemon souffle tart, which opens it’s delicate pastry only once every thousand years for a chosen few.

For the dwarves of the party, a cash bar is available for the evening with brew, ale, wine, and assorted cocktails. The night will come alive with the orchestral stylings of the most popular of entertainment, including ballroom arrangements from The Lord of the Rings, Final Fantasy, Harry Potter, The Legend of Zelda, Miyazaki movies, and many many more, with a full dance floor on which to take your favorite necromancer or lamia for a swinging good time!

GA – An Evening with Nick Offerman

0000_good-clean-fun-nick-offerman

Nick Offerman (Parks & Recreation’s Ron Swanson) returns to Atlanta on Wednesday, October 19th at 7:00 PM for an evening of fun, frolic, and woodworking wisdom at the Ferst Center.

This is a ticketed event. Tickets are $45 and include a signed, first edition of Nick Offerman’s latest book, GOOD CLEAN FUN. Tickets are available online and at A Cappella Books.

Author, actor, and humorist Nick Offerman charmed audiences as the disgruntled libertarian Ron Swanson in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.” Then his books, PADDLE YOUR OWN CANOE and GUMPTION, revealed the man to be not unlike the character: a back-to-the-basics woodworker with well-groomed facial hair and a penchant for patriotism. GOOD CLEAN FUN: MISADVENTURES IN SAWDUST AT OFFERMAN WORKSHOP, is Offerman’s latest book, and it at long last offers the opportunity to peek inside the woodshop where the man puts his good ol’ American values to work. Inside it, we meet Offerman’s “ragtag crew of champions,” learn projects for every skill level, sneak a peek at “wood porn,” and, of course, gain humorous insight into woodworking in modern America from the mustachioed man himself.
