Saturday, August 15, will herald the third annual Chi-Wizard Tournament, a “Harry Potter”-themed pub crawl established five years ago in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, under the creative tutelage of Elyse Hertko. She decided to celebrate the release of “Deathly Hallows – Part 1” with an appropriately themed pub crawl just between friends. However, that crawl soon grew and turned into a phenomenon.

- “My brothers, my sisters. The clock is ticking faster. We who live for freedom, for truth, and for love. The moment has come to share my vision of the future that awaits if we do not rise up and take our rightful place in the world. Where we wizards are free. Aurors, join me in this circle, pledge to me your eternal allegiance, or die.”
