Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Take a swig of some Butterbeer and wolf down a Krusty Burger as Universal Studios Hollywood reopens sans rides for this ticketed food and shopping event.

Starting March 12, Taste of Universal will offer admission to shops and restaurants in the theme park’s upper lot, which most notably includes the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the Simpsons-themed Springfield, USA, as well as the debut of Minion Cafe and a cluster of spots near Hollywood & Dine.

Each ticket, which costs $44 on Fridays and $49 on Saturdays and Sundays, includes a choice of five items out of about 70 different culinary options on offer (Universal notes that 30 of them are making their debut just for the event).

On the shopping side, you’ll be able to return to all of your Wizarding World faves, hit up the Animation Store and preview the Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash shop, which sits next to the upcoming attractions. Look out for some physically distanced photo ops along the way, too.
