If you're looking an enchanting shindig, prepare to hop aboard the Hogwarts Express. Or pretend to, complete with all the Harry Potter costumes such a journey needs.
To mark more than twenty years of book and movie magic, the Brightside is once again celebrating a certain boy wizard, his wondrous world, and the stories that defined many a childhood. Of course, their latest Harry Potter party is a grown-up affair as always, complete with freshly brewed Butterbeer.
Plus, apart from drinking and dressing up (which everyone does, so consider yourself warned), there's plenty of other potty party fun to be had. You'll be partying in spaces decked out like the great hall, the forbidden forest and a giant quidditch pitch (complete with live matches) — and if you need help getting around, you'll be given a marauder's map upon entry.
Take a Defence Against the Dark Arts class from a magician, find out whether the sorting hat thinks you're a Gryffindor or a Hufflepuff, get your fortune told, grab a free house badge, get snapped in the photobooth with glasses and wizard hats, and just generally magic the night away. Tickets cost $24 if you get in quickly — because the early owl catches the worm — and $29.10 afterwards.
