Denver can't get enough Harry Potter-related entertainment. Potted Potter: the Unauthorized Harry Experience, is playing through March 31 at the Newman Center at the University of Denver; the Colorado Symphony will present Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince at Boettcher Concert Hall in August.
And now the details on the long-promised Wizard's Brunch & Dinner have finally materialized. The "immersive dining experience in a magical world" will be in Denver Thursday, August 22, through Saturday, August 24, with two sessions each day at the Exdo Event Center. But you might need to be a magician to get a ticket: They've been doing a disappearing act since early bird sales started this week, with even kid's seats at a family-friendly seating going for a quick $100.
Here's the fine print:
For one weekend we will be inviting you into the amazing Exdo Center which we will transform into a wonderful wizard world! Seated on long tables, you will enjoy a magical feast and fine wizard liquids as our masters and ladies immerse you in a unique universe created especially for you. Early bird pricing is active - tickets will be going up an extra $10 after the early bird period....
Each ticket includes a three course meal plus all the entertainment and events of the day. You can also purchase a 3 hour beverage package that includes spirits, beers and wines. There will be a cash bar available on site.
We encourage everyone to dress up for the event, but guests are welcome to come in whatever they wish!
At this event you can expect great food, magic from our wizards, potion lessons and some brilliant entertainment all set within a great location in the heart of Denver!
Tickets run $45 to $160, and they're going faster than you can say "Merlin," according to organizers of the international sensation, who noted on March 27 that 70 percent of the spots were already gone. (Sunday's family-friendly brunch was already sold out; a Thursday evening family-friendly event had been added.)
