Sting The Hobbit Trivia

This is a thread stictly for trivia questions concerning the Hobbit. Knowledge of Tolkien's other works should not be necessary to answer any trivia in this thread. So, without further ado, here's the first question:

You've invited Kili and Fili over to your place for brunch. You set out a large meal of eggs, bacon, sausages, ham, biscuits, and pancakes for them to eat. They both seem very grateful. However, when you serve them both something to drink, Fili responds with a huff, "Uggh! I can't drink this!"

What did you serve Fili to make him respond so harshly?

Silmaril

This is a cool idea. I'd have to get my book, but right now I don't have it. I'll post later with the answer if someone doesn't before me!

I also would have accepted Apple Juice.

Your turn, Rose.

Well, since Rose hasn't posted in a couple of days, I'd say it's anyone's turn.

Can I go? Here's my question, though it's easy. Where was Smaug's weak spot? I can't remember it, but I'm pretty sure my guess is correct.

Because you just wait for acknowledgement. That's how all of the threads are. If the poser of the question does not return for a few days, I'll go ahead.

As starter of this thread, let me make some clarifications.

1)If you have the correct answer (and have been told so) but fail to post a question in two days time, it's up for grabs.

2) Please wait for acknowledgment of your answer before posting a new question.

3) If acknowledgement is not received in two days and you can provide evidence that your answer is correct (i.e. direct passages from the book), you may go ahead and post a new question.

4) The questioner may give hints at his/her discretion.

5) The person who answered the question correctly may pass his/her turn on to somebody else, if he/she desires.

Musnud: I recognize your signature as a quote from the wandering man at the beginning of Timeline! I'm looking forward to the movie adaptation which should be released some time this year, and which was filmed in Montreal, Canada!

A desire for wealth...

Telephirion, I just finished the book, and I was duly impressed. I'm also looking forward to the movie next year.

I'm pretty sure Arwen Imladris was right, but we've got to wait for the other dude, don't we?

Wealth is okay...I'll take it.

I was really looking for something about treasures.

Quote:
If the elf-king had a weakness it was for treasure, especially for silver and white gems; and though his hoard was rich, he was ever eager for more, since he had not yet as great a treasure as other elf-lords of old.

Question

Okay, let's see....

Bilbo decided to invite Gollum over for tea and scones on a Tuesday afternoon.
So he ambled over to Proudfoot & Hornblower's Telegraph Services to send the invitation to Gollum's little cubby hole inside the Misty Mountains.
After receiving a message in return concerning something about "being delighted" and "talk about precious things," Bilbo returned to Bag End. As he entered his front door, he mumbled to himself, "I must write this down, so I don't forget."

Where did Bilbo decide to write down this get-together with Gollum?

His calendar! At least, I'm sure that was right, without looking at the book.

This is probably simple, but I can't think of much else--

Why couldn't Bilbo see the edge of Mirkwood when he climbed the tree?

Even tho they were almost in the end of the wood, the tree was in the lowest spot in the surronding area (something like the bottom of a bowl) and it created the illusion that the end of the wood wasn't in sight

I haven't read The Hobbit soon so the best I can think of:

What was Bilbo's present for Thranduil and why did he make it?

The gift was a pearl-and-silver necklace, and it was in return for the food that Bilbo took.
