Wanna feel old? (Does anyone say yes to that question?) The first Harry Potter book, The Philosopher's Stone, came out in 1997, which means that the 10-year-olds who read it are now 30. Suffice it to say, J.K. Rowling's series of young-adult fantasy books and their subsequent film adaptations have a lot of grown-ass fans. On Saturday, L.A.'s most fervent "Pottheads" gather for PotterCon Los Angeles, a fan event that features a Hogwarts-style "Sorting Ceremony," a costume contest, trivia and specialty cocktails. And — wait, let me guess — butterbeer. Pour some out for Alan Rickman. 18 and up welcome.
