Recently this reporter did an in-depth investigation of the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade. What I have found may shock you. An employee recently fired by Madam Rosmerta (check out her story on page15)has spoken exclusively to me. I was told that Madame Rosmerta's mulled mead's secret ingredient is none other than Flobberworm Mucus! So you may want to check out her other drinks before you imbibe any more of them!

While reviewing the Three Broomsticks customers employees and service , this reporter, Rita Skeeter has noticed that some service is better than others. One has noticed that a certain owner always seems to have a twinkle in her eye , a chair a table and a Soda with Cherry Syrup at the ready with a smile and giggle for a certain short customer. I won't name names but some of us have to wait our turn while this individual doesn't. Could there be love in the air at "The Three Broomsticks"?

Most of us have visited The Three Broomsticks to sample the variety of drinks and beverages that are served there. But new information has come to light that she may or may not be using magic to keep her customers coming to refill their glasses. Last week, Liam Moore, a regular visitor and resident of the quaint town of Hogsmeade, declared that he felt the sudden urge to return to the bar, even while he was attempting to leave.

"I felt a strange sensation in my gut, as if something was compelling me to just sit down and remain there for all eternity," he said with a confused expression on his face, "The next day, when I stopped by for a quick drink, I saw her adding something to a barrel of her well-known butterbeer." Many believe that it was a few drops of a love potion, watered down to let people keep their wits about them, and make them start to love the general atmosphere of Rosmerta's bar.

This theory is further supported by the well-known fact that she adds Sugar-Shrub, a common plant used for sweetener, to her extra-sweet butterbeer. This could potentially mask any residue or flavor of the love potion, and hide her treachery from the rest of the community.

So next time you travel to The Three Broomsticks, be very aware of what you are drinking, as the next time you stand up to leave, could well be during the middle of next year.

Reviewing The Three Broomsticks one might taste something different in the butterbeer. Many had said their butterbeer is sourer than usual. In fact many have been buying the extra-sweet butterbeer instead their usual butterbeer. Many have demand for the old butterbeers that were used to be made. Many believe there were lemons added were added to the butterbeer. Next time if you visit The Three Broomsticks you will be expected for some sourness.

While The Three Broomsticks may seem like a friendly, cozy place to stop for a drink at first, a little in-depth digging reveals a scandal that may have many avoiding the place for months to come. One of its most popular drinks is the butterbeer. Many mixed reports have come in, some saying the drink is the best thing they had ever tasted, others claiming it was surprisingly flavorless or sour. One determined reporter investigated deeper and found Madam Rosmerta has been giving different types of Butterbeer to people! Depending on whether she favors you or not, she will give you the amazing butterbeer that has given The Three Broomsticks its popularity, or the sour kind. Now that this scandal has been released, you can judge for yourself how good this place actually is. And of course, this secret has been revealed to you by none other than, yours truly, Rita Skeeter.

Readers will be shocked to read that Madam Rosemerta of The Three Broomsticks is a widow! In a startling revelation it was revealed that she was married to an unnamed muggle for six years before his mysterious death. Sources cannot confirm whether Madam Rosemerta was involved in his death, but court proceedings are said to have been complicated since they involved both muggle and magical law. It is intriguing, however, that the Madam has kept this scandalous secret so close to the chest - if there is no guilt, why hide it? Take a peek next time you visit Hogsmeade, and you'll see that no ring adorns those pretty fingers. Is Rosemerta hiding something? Is she ashamed of her controversial solicit? Or is she simply readying herself to make her next move?

Dear readers, I have been over to drink at the dingy place called The Three Broomsticks! I had to stop by and see if the owner had revamp the pub but alas it is still the same old, outdated place to have common drinks. The owner seems oblivious to how customers walk in and out. They rather go to a better establishment like Madam Puddifoot in Hogsmeads.

I have finally learned the secret as to what makes the Three Broomsticks so popular and how they keep their customers coming back. A former employee confided in me that they add a secret ingredient to all of their drinks that is so addicting that no one can stop drinking them. Now you know why everyone goes there. They’re all addicted to the drinks.

The three broomsticks was not always a pub. It was once a base of operations for a spy team. They eventually sold it to Rosmertas grandmother.

The Three Broomsticks is a questionable cover story for a black market witch. The proprietress, who goes by Madam Rosmerta, is really using the bar as a shady cover-up for her non-tradeable materials business. Need some of those hard-to-obtain or illegal potions ingredients? Want some dragon eggs or venomous tentacula seeds? She's the one to see. She has contacts around the world who ship items to her away from the Ministry's watchful eye. This includes various dangerous creature eggs, including acromantula (ostensibly harvested in the Forbidden Forest itself, a mere five minute walk from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!), chimaera (shipped from the Middle East on illegal magic carpets), and dragon (sourced around the world, any breed of dragon available - for a fee).

I have learnt that a Hogwarts student named Jacob discovered the Cursed Vaults at the school. Jacob had drawn maps and diagrams showing how to get to these secret locations that were scattered around the school. Rosmerta has always claimed that she knew nothing about the whereabouts of Jacob’s notebook, but during my research I was able to meet with Jacob’s sister. She told me that int he 1980s, Jacob had been smitten with the older woman who was a barmaid at the time, and before his disappearance, he gave his notebook to Rosmerta. When Jacob’s sister confronted her about this, Rosmerta claimed that she knew nothing about it. I believe that Rosmerta has hidden the notebook somewhere at the Three Broomsticks, probably under the floorboards.

Hogwarts might want to keep better tabs on their students. This reporter personally witnessed an un-named, tow headed Slytherin sneaking out the back door of The Three Broomsticks in the village of Hogsmeade. Could Madam Rosmerta be using her feminine wiles to recruit him into spying on the teachers? Or is she perhaps buying items pilfered from the Potions Master? Yours truly, Rita Skeeter, believes those in charge need to look into this before it is too late!
