What we're about
I started this group for two reasons: 1) to meet other adults who love all that is Harry Potter and 2) to create a community chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance, a nonprofit coalition that draws inspiration from the Harry Potter novels to go out and do good in the world and fight the real-life dark arts. Because why not use our passion for Harry Potter to do good! Together we can make a positive impact in our community, which is real magic! You can read more about the Harry Potter Alliance here (http://thehpalliance.org/what-we-do/).
My hope is to alternate meetups between volunteer events and social (Harry Potter-inspired) gatherings (because friendship is a form of magic too!).
We also have an active monthly fantasy/sci-fi book club where we talk about other books that may have also inspired us or at least helped get us through our Harry Potter withdrawals.
Some ideas for future events are Harry Potter themed potlucks, movie nights, wand-dueling paintball, and I've always wanted to do a Harry Potter themed murder mystery dinner but would need a lot of help with that one.
If you are into things other than Harry Potter, great! Let me know and we can work those in as well. I just love themes and costumes really, and I realize that there are a lot of cross-over interests that we probably share.
Please email me and let me know your ideas, interests or if you would like to host a gathering or get involved in helping me run this meetup! ILeftMyWandinSF@gmail.com
