Folks:
I'll be in Las Vegas for work in two weeks, arriving on Sunday, February 10th, and flying out the morning of the 14th.

If anyone is there, or would be (for some weird reason) be willing to make the trek...it would be great to get together with you.

Cheers,
Steve

Hi Everyone,

I made a very last minute decision to meet up with Steve in Las Vegas on Monday, February 11 and Tuesday the 12th. If any of you happen to be in the area on those dates, it would be fun to meet up with you in person and have a session.

I fly in early Monday morning at 8am and will be leaving on Tuesday evening at 8pm. Let me know if you're able to join us and I will firm up some plans for us to get together.

Happy Friday!!

Rudy

If you go to Hotwire.com, you can get some excellent bargains.  For instance, the Stratosphere hotel is going for $12 a night (plus their $37/night resort fee); the Rio is going for $27 a night, plus the $36/night resort fee.  Those are on the Strip;  downtown has some good bargains as well; the Plaza is going for less than $65 a night for the two nights.

There's always airbnb as well, of course.

Rudy and I met yesterday, last night and this morning...and we were joined by some incredible folks, namely Allan Ackerman, Ed Kwon, Frank Zak and our own Steve Christian.  We ended up at the Mandalay Bay's Foundation Room which overlooks the Strip.  

So, many thanks to you guys...It was an absolute joy.

We all did...and I want to publicly thank Rudy for flying down to Vegas; I'm in awe that he did so, and his presence made the rest possible.

I had such a great time with you fellas. It was well worth the trip south.

Each of you, Frank Zak, Ed Kwon, Steve Christian, Allan Ackerman, and yourself...made it memorable in different ways. Thank you.

I hope that one day, we'll have a Magician's Forum gathering where I can meet more of you face to face.

Rudy

Frank is one of the friendliest people in magic.  Back in the day - Late '90's - Frank mentored Allan as he tended bar for a short time.

There was also a regular at Saturday lunches where Frank worked around at that time was also a member of this forum who recently passed. Lew Brooks was a brilliant mind who knew more than a little about a lot and was genuinely interested in helping those who were willing to learn. Although we lost touch over the years I miss him badly now!

RIP Lew.

Frank tells the story that he hired Allan to work behind the bar, but that Allan came to him after a short time and said, "If I'm gonna keep working here, I'm going to have to revamp my entire style!"

Frank was/is all about immediacy in the magic, based on his years at the bar.  He said if you did three tricks, that constituted a set, and you needed to be able to interrupt your flow to "get the money" from your customers.
