If you are slightly obsessed with all things Harry Potter, you have to visit the Yellow Umbrella Friday evening. They are hosting a “Fantastic Feasts and Where to Eat Them” dinner. Every witch or wizard will be presented with 7 courses, each inspired by a Harry Potter book (in order). The cost per person is 2 galleons and 8 sickles ($18 for all you muggles). Dress robes not required, but highly encouraged! Send reservations by owl post (or call 765-569-2233 if you don’t have an owl). Reservations are required by Thursday at 5, as this menu will require nearly as much preparation as polyjuice potion.
