Ahh the nights we’ve found ourselves in Little Rivendell or the Muttonpacking District or, more commonly, Hipsters’ Deep. We have to say, the NYC area really lends itself to Tolkien-esque names. What might we call the Flatiron Building, for instance…?

Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of You’d call it Talananga, duh.
