If Harry Potter movies were still gracing cinemas, exploring the boy who lived's adult life, we're certain he'd be a brunch fan. It's a magical meal, after all. But if you're in Brisbane this October, you can enjoy the next best thing.
Whether you're still not over Harry or you just wish you'd had the chance to attend Hogwarts because you know you're destined to be in Gryffindor (and to be seeker on the quidditch team, obviously), you'll want to make a date with The Wizard's Brunch. You'll dine in a Great Hall-like space, matching your meal (Pixie Puffs, please) with 'magic' potions (aka cocktails, we're assuming) and — hopefully — butterbeer. And you can bet the menu will include every Potter pun you can think of.
The particulars such as the exact date, venue and how many galleons you'll have to spend haven't been revealed as yet, though keen muggles can sign up to The Wizard's Brunch email list for more information. What we do know, from the Sydney event held earlier this year, is that there'll be long tables topped with candles, goblets filled with wine and Harry Potter characters mingling with attendees. This video should get the vibe across:
Folks in costumes pretending to be Hermione, Dumbledore and others isn't really our idea of a magical HP experience, but perhaps a few firewhiskys will get you in the right mood. And if not, you can just sit tight for the next Fantastic Beasts film to be released or the Cursed Child stage show to hit Australia.
The Wizard's Brunch will take place in a yet-to-be announced Brisbane location in October. We'll let you know when you can buy tickets, and you can sign up for updates here.
