Need your Harry Potter fix?
Feeling spontaneous?
Ready to get in the holiday mood? 

Let's meetup this Sunday to enjoy sweet treats at the next best place since Honeydukes.

Who: meetup.com, hp_chicago and anyone else who would like to come (kid friendly!)
What: Casual meetup for friends of the Boy Who Lived and the bands that are keeping the series alive
When: Sunday, November 18, from 2-4pm.
Where: Sweet Occasions and More, Andersonville
5306 North Clark (at Berwyn)
Chicago, IL 60640
773.275.5190

How: I'll try to secure a table based on RSVP's and will have my DA sweatshirt and huge Deathly Hallows Bag with me. If enough of us convene then we can adjourn to the party room in the back. There's street parking. Public Transpo: Take CTA 22 Clark bus, CTA red line to Berwyn Stop and walk .5 miles West, or Ravenswood Metra stop and walk N on Ravenswood and Rt on Berwyn to Clark (approx. 1 mile). 
Why: Because I am new to the fandom, psyched about making new friends, sharing wizard rock music, discussing these and other books, attending HP cons, concerts and parties and keeping up on current events!

Please RSVP and if you cannot make it then I hope to meet you next time!

Thank you to everyone who made it to the meetup today. We had a great turnout with 9 of us at Sweet Occasions! For those who couldn't make it-we had a great time chatting about wizard rock, upcoming events, book 7, The Twilight Series, The Steve VanderArk case, The Terminus/Mugglecast dynamic, how we got into HP, what we're looking forward to and what we're reading now. We're psyched to meet again at the Dec. Remus Lupins shows at the NIU Muggle Ball and Magic Tree Bookstore, Oak Park, want to plan something together for Feb. and coordinate a chicago group for Wrockstock. I won't be able to stay as organizer of the meetup.com group so please keep posted on upcoming events here or my jensjourney page and check out ihearttheweasleytwins on myspace for interviews that I will post soon from our meetup today. Thanks to everyone who came, happy thanksgiving and see you at the Dec. Remus Lupin shows! Jen

Proposed local meetup event Calendar:
Dec: The Remus Lupins
Feb: Some sort of Valentines wrock event
May: Wrockstock
August: Wrock Chicago/Terminus
TBD-HBP Movie Release

P.S. Here are the book series recommendations from the meetup today:

1. Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Series. Check out stepheniemeyer.com and be in touch as you read it! We're here for you.

2. Libba Bray's A Great Terrible Beauty and Rebel Angels.
