Did you know?

Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

Now that he had walked up to them, he couldn't exactly whirl around and get going. That would be rude. And was not, presumably, how straight men seduced their future wives.

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.
Hogsmeade Hospital
7 Topics   |   25 Posts
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.

Touch-A Touch-A Touch-A Touch Me by Nathaniel Herondale
Yesterday – 4:01 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.
The Hog's Head
0 Topics   |   0 Posts

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.

We could fall apart by Elsbeth Lupin
Today – 3:25 AM

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.

Bachelor #5 to Stay Away From by Barnabas Skeeter
Today – 2:16 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.
