THE HARRY POTTER ADVENTURE: Bet your favorite wand that gaggles of wizards will be gathered at movie theaters tonight, awaiting the 12:01 a.m. debut of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1." But some of those lucky gaggles will be watching two earlier Harrys ahead of 12:01, "Order of the Phoenix" and "Half-Blood Prince." Get info on the AMC theatres that have joined in the adventure. First movie starts at 6 p.m.
DOWNTOWN ON ICE OPENS: The chilly Pershing Square skate place will be there for the next two months, but tonight is day number one. And we like the late-ish hours, too; it'll stay open for a good chunk of the evening. It's always lovely to pirouette while looking up at the glowing windows of nearby hotels and office buildings. Movie-like, even.
DINE IN DOWNEY 2010: Several restaurants will gather at Downey's City Hall to grill up what they do best. We're happy to see Bob's Big Boy on the list, of course. Dear Bob's: Please haul in that special sauce by the gallon. Gallon? Maybe by the tub would be better. Delicious. $10 wristbands; 5:30-9 p.m.
