MAGIC: Hoppin' Hogwarts!! There's a Wizard School Scavenger Hunt today at the Getty Center!! Potter-esque participants will set out in search of sorcerers, potions masters, owls, dragons, giants, unicorns, mermaids, sharks, knights and cloaked would-be Dementors. The hunt, guided by trick questions, is designed for teams of kids (10+) and adults, and a "cheat sheet" will be provided for Muggles. Getty Center, 4:00-6:00 p.m.
