As a card-carrying Harry Potter nerd, I am well aware that Harry Potter was born on July 31st, 1980. On his first birthday, Voldemort came to Godric's Hollow and killed his parents, Lily and James Potter, forcing him to go live with his horrible Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon until Hagrid showed up on his 11th birthday to tell him he was a wizard and that he'll be going to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The point is, a lot of crazy stuff has happened on Harry Potter's birthday. Dude needs to relax, have a couple of butterbeers, and celebrate. To that end, Highlander Beer in Missoula is looking to make that happen! They'll be holding a Harry Potter birthday celebration on Wednesday, July 31st. Here's the info from their Facebook event page:

Head to Highlander Beer on Wednesday July 31st to celebrate our dear friend Harry Potter's birthday!

Join us outside in the Highlander Pavilion for games, trivia, costume contests, BUTTERBEER on cask and MORE!

More details to follow! Stay tuned!

The event is going down from 5 to 8. Please leave your Hippogriff parked outside.
