Milwaukee's annual Yule Ball - based on the Harry Potter books and films - is two evenings of magic and splendor with gorgeous decorations, joyful and dance-friendly music, a carefully crafted cocktail menu and a marketplace with some of the most unique baubles money can buy, but the heart of the event is the people who attend.

The Tavern at Turner Hall opens Oct. 3. But we got a peek at the new venue during its soft opening this weekend. And, while it's definitely still a work in progress (just read the myriad signs on the walls), it's not difficult to see the way the venue will embrace both a new identity and its Milwaukee history in a relatively seamless way.
