There are so many Harry Potter events coming up in the next year so we have a LOT to discuss! Tickets for the Houston Hogwarts Express are $3.50 per person. If you have any questions, please feel free to post them in the comments or on the event on Facebook. We can't wait to see all of our new and old members there!!

From the magical folk that brought you the original Night of a Dozen Wizards (The Ascendio Envy party), we proudly present Night of a Dozen Wizards IV! This will be a fun filled day of Harry Potter shenanigans, including swimming in the Black Lake, games, activities and movies! Bring your favorite HP item or collectible for show-n-tell, bring HP games to play, dress in your favorite HP costume, and bring HP-related food or drinks. This will be a pot-luck event and all attendees are expected to contribute. It is a BYOB shindig and all LEGAL AGE witches and wizards who choose to booze are expected to party RESPONSIBLY! The party is being graciously hosted by Marek Dorman and her husband at their house in the Tomball area, so please RSVP to get the address. We will open a thread on this event page so that everyone can coordinate and list what they plan to bring. It would suck if everyone brought plates and cups and no one brought anything to put in them! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask! Hope to see everybody there! (Don't forget your swimsuit!)
