Being a Harry Potter fan isn't as easy as it was just a few years ago, when the saga was tops. But that backslide didn't stop diehard fans of the series. An Enchanting Evening of Wizardly Wonders went down on Saturday night at the Mercury Cafe, with performances by Harry and the Potters, the magical Potter Puppet Pals, and Mega Gem, a "pop-punk orchestra" that includes at least one local Quidditch player. Not enough magic for you? There was also a sneak peek at a new board game based on the search for Horcruxes, plus a costume contest for the best-dressed witch or wizard.
