Important Information about Harry Potter parties!

ARE YOU READY FOR MAGIC? We are so excited to celebrate all things Harry Potter with you this weekend, but have some important information you need to know in order to get the most of this experience.  
 
PLEASE NOTE: Both Harry Potter parties are COMPLETELY SOLD OUT. Although we wish we could magically expand our physical spaces, due to fire code regulations and safety, we cannot make any exceptions for last-minute ticket sales or entry.

Getting Your Book at Midnight!
Copies of Harry Potter & the Cursed Child Parts I & II will be distributed at midnight outside our Pacific Avenue doors. We expect all the books to be handed out within 10-15 minutes so there isn't a need to line up early.
