How well do you know the Harry Potter universe? While many can recount the details of each installment — be it the movies or the books — unless you’re writing your own fan fiction, you probably haven’t had to spell out the series’ unique language. Avada kedavra, alohomora, and arithmancy might sound easy when said aloud, but there are tricky parts to each of those words. At the Harry Potter Drinking Spelling Bee, folks will get buzzed while demonstrating their magical vocabulary. Registration scores you a pint of Butterbeer. The more you spell correctly the tipsier you’ll be, as every correct word merits a shot of Polyjuice potion. (Let’s hope it turns you into a perfect speller.) 21+.
