So... what do we do with the kids???

Just lately we’ve had a number of people asking if the San Francisco Magic Parlor is appropriate for small children… and I very  much appreciate parents asking in advance.

While there is absolutely no objectionable language or material at all… we highly recommend the Parlor experience for adults 16 years and older.

For a family-friendly foray into magic may I suggest the wonderful San Francisco Magic Show at Pier 39 staring my colleague Timothy Noonan? It’s a great afternoon family option.

And… we hope to see the parents some evening when they have a “night off” from the kids!
