As we reported last summer, plans are in the works to build a wizard-themed pub at 5135 Ballard Ave NW.
Now we know that the name of the pub will be The Splintered Wand, according to a Washington state liquor license application posting.
The Splintered Wand will be part pub/part wand shop. The wandmakers call themselves Piscataqua & Balch, with a complex and individualized process of creation. Wood for each wand will be determined by the recipient’s date of birth, and are then infused with one of 12 magic essences.
The opening is still a ways off, but we’ll keep you updated when we know more.
