Crimes of Grindelwald '20s Party w/ NYDA!
From the Facebook event page ( -- The second Fantastic Beasts movie, The Crimes of Grindelwald, is being released, so NY Dumbledore's Army (the NYC chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance) is calling all wizards and witches together to mark the occasion with a 1920s-themed bash! Located above a former speakeasy in a neighborhood where infamous gangsters such as Al Capone once roamed, The Museum of the American Gangster will take us on tours to learn about organized crime in the Prohibition Era. Guests will also mix and mingle next door at the William Barnacle Tavern, a former speakeasy that will be our The Blind Pig for the night! They specialize in absinthe, for witches and wizards who favor this particular potion! The best part? All proceeds will support survivors of domestic abuse. No matter whether you're planning on seeing Crimes of Grindelwald this weekend or not, ALL Potter fans are welcome to enjoy this fundraiser! 1920s costumes and/or wizard attire are highly encouraged!!! ***TICKETS WILL GO ON SALE SHORTLY, PLEASE STAY TUNED!! There will be tours at 5:30pm and 7:30pm.*** About the Harry Potter Alliance - Join NYDA - Facebook: Twitter & Instagram: @hpanyda

Our main sponsor is Jordan Dené ( - 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.
