Apparently, 2016 is the year for awesome Harry Potter-themed dining events. First, we learned about the upcoming City Winery dinner, themed (albeit a bit lightly) to Harry Potter. Now, we've heard about a dinner that sounds like it's taking it to the next level for Potter fans.

At Ada Street on Oct. 29 and 30, guests can experience a "Great Hall Halloween Feast." If you haven't been to Ada Street, take it from us: it's long, dark, windy entrance and its many dining spaces lend itself to this sort of dinner very well. Guests will arrive at the Three Broomsticks, enjoy a welcome Butterbeer, be sorted into their houses and sit down for dinner.

The dinner is four courses, paired with themed cocktails like Pumpkin Juice and the Dementor Antidote. There's firewhiskey for dessert and (in a bit of a stretch) "Quidditch beer pong" on the patio. Whatever, it'll be fun.

Tickets are $75 and include tax and tip. Buy them now, because we have a feeling this one will sell out.
