Pandemonium Books & Games, the sf/f bookstore and gaming spot in Central Square, Cambridge (Massachusetts), runs a weekend-long geek culture festival in October called Geek Central. Events happen all around the Square and will include a geek-themed burlesque show, panels with local sf/f authors, and more.
Some of us who have been informally throwing events like the “Hogwarts Alumni Reunion” at Arisia and going to afternoon tea in costume, etc. have been talked into throwing a Harry Potter themed Costume Ball at the Elks Lodge! So, here we go!
It’ll be mere days before Halloween, which only makes it an even better excuse to get your Potter on! We’ll also have prizes for best costumes.
Note: this costume ball is for adults! Alcohol will be served.
PRICE: Tickets are on sale now. EARLY BIRD SPECIAL: only $10 for the first 25 early birds to purchase! After that it goes up to $15 in advance, $20 at the door.
DATE: October 26 (Sunday) 2014 from 7pm – 11pm.
HOW TO PURCHASE: Visit Hogwarts Alumni of Boston and use the online shopping cart there.
We’re also looking for volunteers and sponsors. If you can help out in any way, whether working a door shift, helping decorate, donating prizes, or spreading the word, drop us a line!
