I don't have a good picture of it, but suffice it to say it was utter chaos. Tons of people waiting in line, employees handing out house scarves and broomsticks for an overpriced photo op (Hufflepuff scarves didn't seem too popular, for some reason...), and everyone screaming and cheering throughout.

Chaim'l had suggested White House Express as a good place to get a decent lunch, and so I ordered what seemed to be a decently-sized burger and some fries.

Here's what arrived - it was a good eight inches tall:




It's a good thing you told us there is a burger in there. I wouldn't have known.

No, just incredibly busy with v2.0 at the moment. There's still a lot to come.

LYR is not a good place if your primary objective is the NL, it's too far north.

That trip happened last March, see here.
