Wow! Our 18th month at the Magic Parlor 3-1-14. It snuck up on me.

It’s happened so quickly. 
One and a half years! 
Sort of snuck up on me…

So this Saturday, March 1st we’ll be doing something special at Our San Francisco Magic Parlor performance.

Please spread the word ...or better still experience the Magic for yourself!

How time flies.

Delightfully schizophrenic Magic in a Paradoxical world!

Wonder what to do on a dull Monday evening?

If you enjoyed your Magic Parlor experience, I think you’ll like this very different magical night. Long time colleague magician David Facer is presenting his show “The World of Paradox” at The Garage space in SOMA.

David’s one-man magic show introduces five diverse characters, each one with a different point of view, but all proving that “impossible is not a word…”

If you say you’re  a friend of the San Francisco Magic Parlor I bet you’ll get a special discount on your tickets.

Valentine’s Weekend was amazing for me!

I made a bunch of new friends, the camaraderie between everyone was palpable and I think we’ll all fondly remember the holiday we shared.

It was crazy in Union Square as there were tons of people watching the Chinese New Year Parade. My guests get lots of extra points for finding parking making though the crowds, and being on time. Hugs!

We presented 3 dozen long stemmed roses to lovely ladies–
Gifted 75 heart boxes of chocolates to guests–
Conjured up a potent Love Spell three times–
Even earned a standing-O (maybe that was their sugar and champagne kicking in?)

Now where will I find a real Leprechaun for St. Pat’s Magic Parlor weekend???


Thank YOU Martha for your wonderful FB comment!!!

          “Wanted to thank you for a wonderful Valentine's Day!....we loved your show! are amazing!.... I am adding my experience with you to my collection of fabulous things I did for my birthday!....thank you!”
