Gather your sorting hats: a Harry Potter dining event is making its way to New York City this August. The "Wizard's Brunch & Dinner" will be in the city for one weekend only, August 17th and 18th, and we’re almost positive Hogwarts cosplay will be as big a deal as the food.
Tickets are now on sale for this traveling dinner theater (adult tickets range from $135 to $150, plus fees), which has delighted Potter-obsessed crowds everywhere from Denver, Colorado to Liverpool, England. The immersive experience invites Muggles to learn spells, drink witchy brews, and visit fortune tellers. Picture Medieval Times for the J.K. Rowling set. Honestly it looks pretty intense:
Wizard's Brunch & Dinner will take place twice a day, with different sessions available for fans of all ages, and others strictly for adults. Pier 60, the site of this fantastical extravaganza, will be transformed into a replica of Hogwarts Great Hall (floating candles included). The venue will house the various Potter characters and activities like competitive quizzes and live music, and the themed, three-course meal will be prepared by New York City-based chef Abigail Kirsch. Everyone is encouraged to dress up.
