On Halloween Eve

Halloween hauntings unfold the winds blow.
Spells begin to brew and bubble.
Claps of magical thunder roar.
Wands are raised and waved.
Mysteries unfold!

Welcome to Halloween Weekend at the Parlor...

If you’ve followed the San Francisco Magic Parlor, you know one of our favorite eccentrics is Emperor Joshua Norton. He’s been in the show since we opened!

He had his own imperial currency printed that was pretty much accepted everywhere in town without question.

WELL! I’ve finally got to see an actual genuine Norton Bond Bill. They were HUGE! At least 8 by 4 inches.

My Parlor replicas that are given away at our shows are just over dollar size. Well starting next month our bills will be HUGE too!

Thank you Emperor Norton!

(Here’s some info about that fine fellow.)

“Buried Treasure, An Underground Adventure” with Walt Anthony

For those who did not know, as well as a magician, I have a twenty-year history as a professional actor...

I’ll be portraying Mayor Adolph Sutro (of Sutro Baths, Cliff House, Comstock Silver Baron fame) at what will be a very unique “underground” adventure “Buried Treasure” Celebrating 125 years of Jewish San Francisco History.

It’s a free event and you’ll also meet:
Levi Strauss, Wyatt Earp, Emperor Norton, Alice B. Toklas, and so many more folks you did not know were buried here (and alive for the day) or even that they were Jewish celebrities!

“Stories never end. We end."

I seem to find endless quotes that resonate with me as I read and reread the jewels in Peter S. Beagle’s words. 

They inspire me to do better magic and better tale-telling in the world. 

Quote from  Peter S. Beagle (from Slight of Hand)

You’ve made the San Francisco Magic Parlor a huge success.
