Haven’t used your fishnet stockings in a while? Well, if you need an excuse, there’s an RHPS party going on at The Firehouse followed by a screening at The Film Bar. Time-warpy!
Get your Frank-N-Furter on around 9pm.

Apparently it’s Harry’s big 35, and I have a very strong feeling that there are least some of you who already knew that. Either way, it’s hard to say no to an HP shindig, especially when Hufflepuff Haiku Contests are involved, which they are.
Join other fans at Lawn Gnome Publishing around 8pm.

For some reason, I love when people take boardgames and make gigantic takes-up-an-entire-room versions of them. Makes me feel like that scene in Big when they’re playing on the giant keyboard, I guess. If you’ve never played King of Tokyo, don’t worry, it’s basically Yahtzee. You’ll pick it up in no time. You may even become… KING.
Check it out at Game Depot AZ starting at 10am.
I’m also a big fan of fans diving deep into discussions about their favorite IPs. Enter the Potter Professors, who are setting up camp at the Southeast Regional Library to have an interactive discussion about all things Hogwarts. If you show up, don’t hold your inner HP fan back. Get in it.
Starts at 1pm, and be sure to register.

This expo is throwing its hat in the valley’s ring of nerdy events, and they’re looking for a few good geeks. Show up at the AZ Collector’s Marketplace to check it out and maybe join the ranks.
Gets going around 2pm.
