Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

Built after the fires of '84, Hogsmeade Hall is a plain, one-story building used by the lower and middle classes to host meetings and occasional events - free of charge.

Art Exhibit by Baxter Keene
Today – 1:44 AM

At six stories tall, it is the tallest building in Hogsmeade. It is tall and clean, with neat lines and elegantly understated decor. When first walking inside, one enters the waiting room. A welcome witch sits at a desk near the entrance, while farther off there are hallways that lead to a tearoom and hospital shop. The emergency waiting room is shared with the regular waiting room and is often filled with wizards and witches with all maladies including steaming from the head, extra limbs and pungent boils. Two lifts operate themselves to carry patients and staff to the other levels.

Loss of a Lock by Ginevra Blackwood
November 30, 2018 – 2:21 PM

Donated by all three major ladies' clubs, the Memorial Ballroom stands as a eternal tribute to the lives that were taken in the Laughing Plague of '84. The foyer consists of a massive fresco featuring each and every person the sickness is known to have taken (at their prettiest and wealthiest -- the rich don't want to dance with beggars!) dancing at an elaborate affair. The building itself is two storeys: the bottom the ballroom proper, as well as the cloak room and kitchens, and the second floor for cards and parlour games, featuring a small stand for musicians, some chaises, and a balcony overlooking the dance floor.

Birds of a Feather by Everett Griffiths
December 13, 2018 – 2:45 PM

A worn-out wooden sign hangs over the door, depicting a wild boar's severed head leaking blood onto the white cloth around it. A shadier pub and inn, the Hog's Head is known for its cheap prices as well as its sometimes crooked clientele. (Description credit goes to J.K Rowling and HPL) The Hog's Head caters primarily to the working class.

Painted Blind by Ophelia Devine
December 7, 2018 – 10:50 PM

The Painted Lady was opened in 1883 by a mysterious Eléonore Lévesque. A tea room by day, the decor is tasteful but indulgent, sporting mauve wallpaper and white walls and trimming. Customers enter the tea room and find themselves in the foyer where a large painting of a lady takes pride of place. Through an archway, is the tea room itself; round tables are found throughout the room and topped with white table cloths trimmed with lace.

Just a Butterbeer by Ava Gedge
November 28, 2018 – 1:05 AM

A well-known inn and a frequent haunt of Hogwarts students. It's warm and comfortable, is packed at all hours of the day, and is a great spot to drink butterbeer. They also serve firewhisky, gillywater, mulled mead, red currant rum, as well as muggle liquor. The food is fresh and delicious and is a popular place for citizens of the working and middle classes.
