https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/d/e/a/a/event_330717002.jpeg

Welcome Harry Potter Fans!

We are HP-NYC, "The Group That Shall Not be Named". And Harry Potter isn't over till we say its over.

We are the largest HP fan club in the world with over 4000 members. Our members span every type of person possible but we are united in our love of these books.

We meet regularly on the 1st Thursday of every month and have special events almost every month. If you are looking for a way to meet new friends and forge new relationships in this huge city of ours, then you've come to the right place.

Our Events

We have a wide range of events and activities that are as diverse as the interests of our members. We strive to provide an experience that allows you to indulge in your talents and creativity while having a tremendously fun time.

Some of our events include:

- Trivia Nights

- Board Game Nights

- Movie Screenings

- HP Themed Crafting

- Fan Fiction Readings

- Cosplay Photoshoots

- Wizard Rock Shows

- Convention Presentations and Appearances

- In Costume Ice Skating

Sponsor

Our main sponsor is Jordan Dené (http://www.jordandene.com/) - Maker of kitchen armor, outfitter of crayon soldiers.

Jordan Dené is a matchmaker of sorts, first introducing and later marrying practicality and pop culture. Pennsylvania-bred and Brooklyn-based, Jordan specializes in creating aprons with geek-chic graphic designs and creative curios like the best-selling crayon bandolier (as seen in Real Simple’s holiday gift guide).

Although initially sewing was solely supposed to be a creative outlet, thanks in part to Etsy’s enthusiastic crafting community, Jordan’s hobby quickly turned into a wonderfully hectic small business.

Jordan’s products are crafted with individual care and are fashionable, functional and 100 percent customizable. With handcrafted items like the ever-popular TARDIS aprons, golden snitch necklaces and canvas bags embroidered with whichever Hogwarts House suits your fancy, Jordan’s shop has everything to fit your niche needs.

New Year, New Us…TGTSNBN 2.0

UNO Pizzeria & Grill

Many of us are disappointed, angry, and disgusted by the comments made by JKR and they do NOT represent TGTSNBN. Many of you know this, but every day there are new members that may not, so it is time for an upgrade. This group is about community and we want to hear your thoughts and get your feedback on how our group can be better. Join us on Feb 2nd as we discuss our:

  1. Updated Mission Statement
  2. The recent formation of our non-profit corporation (Urban Wizards Social Club Inc.)
  3. Intentions to represent our fandom moving forward with YOU!
  4. Event ideas you would like to see this year or even further in the future.

We want our actions to speak louder than words - New Year, New Us…TGTSNBN 2.0

Our monthly Meetups are almost always free to attend. We usually hold a raffle with some wonderful potential prizes. This helps fund our operating costs as well as supplies like prizes, crafting materials and more.

Please do not let this discourage you from attending if you cannot contribute at this time, it is only a request, not a requirement. Thank you for your support!
