Magician Clare T. Ashley provides a Harry-Potter-inspired guide to the weekend.

There are plenty of cultural events happening this weekend - high and low. But some of Chicago's muggles are more in the mood for one last evening with the Harry, Hermoine and Ron. Yes, Harry Potter and the gang are back in the eigth and final film of the series--but that doesn’t mean the magic is goine. For some, magic is not just something that happens in books or movies but part of their nine-to-five life. Clare T. Ashley is a magician in Chicago and she joined Eight Forty-Eight  to share some tricks and her ideas for the weekend as the latest Weekly Guide.
