Local British-style pub, The Victoria Freehouse, has hosted a number of geeky, super-fan themed events in the past few years, including trivia nights for Game of Thrones and Doctor Who. And in October, they are continuing the magic with a series celebrating the beloved universe of The Boy Who Lived: Harry Potter.
You might have heard about their Quidditch Beer Pong Tournament. Not a Quidditch champ? Fear not, there are other ways for muggles to take part in the fun, including three weekly rounds of trivia and drag performances.
Harry Potter Quizzo
There are three dates for quizzo on Tuesdays through the end of the month: October 11,October 18 and October 25.
Reservations are required to play and are limited to teams of six or under, and are only accepted by phone: (215) 543-6089. (No minimum per team.)
There is a $20/per person food and drink minimum to participate and a $25 non-refundable deposit (deductible from your tab) is required for each reservation. Parties must arrive in-full for their scheduled reservation to redeem the deposit. Learn more about their reservation modification and cancellation policy.
Team seatings begin at 7 p.m. and the game begins at 8 p.m.
After quizzo ends, the party will move upstairs to the Front Street Dive for a Hogwarts-themed burlesque performance, “Harry Potter and the Closet of Drag”, where robes and invisibility cloaks will be shed en masse and with flair by local favorite kings and queens. There’s a $10 cover at the door and audience cosplay is encouraged.
