Welcome to the Midwinter BallIn the Second Circle on the northern side where the more affluent shops are stands the Tavern of the Seven Stars. It is on the outer edge of the Marketplace and is surrounded by a small garden of tall trees. The tavern is only open after 6p.m. in the evening.
The Tavern of the Seven Stars
It is an elegant establishment where Gondorians and friends come dressed in their finery to enjoy an elegant dinner and dancing. There are crisp linen tablecloths and napkins that are kept sparkling white as the snow outside by Catherine’s fine Laundry Service, and every table is decked with elaborate centerpieces of flowers or greenery, and lit by glowing candles.
This evening it is even more beautiful than normal, for it has been reserved for Minas Tirith’s annual Midwinter Ball. Fresh-cut green garlands interspersed with crimson berries deck the walls and add a fresh scent of spice and growing things to the air. The Steward’s long silver banners adorned with the White Tree hang among them. Long tables line the walls, laden with holiday dishes of all sorts – succulent roasted meats and vegetables both stewed and fresh; fruit compotes and elegant pastries; fresh rolls and pickled goods. The end table is crowned with a large Wassail bowl and many fluted crystal glasses of the beverage. A formal bar at the far end of the hall is also available for patrons to obtain drinks of all sorts, from rich lagers and ales to heady meads and sparkling wines.
The Central area for dancing has been expanded to accommodate the larger gathering, and a small orchestra plays in the balcony that overlooks the hall to provide ambiance and tunes for the couples who dance across the floor.
So, come one come all to the midwinter ball! Wear your best cloak or finest gown, and lace up your dancing shoes for a whirl on the floor with your love or an acquaintance brand new. Partake of the feast of field and vine and celebrate the turning of winter toward spring again. The Yuletide and the New Year are here!
