Hi: 

I'm new to the forum. I perform close-up and stand-up magic, and help operate the Chicago Magic Lounge, a twice-weekly show that recreates the old days of Chicago magic bars. Glad to be here.

Hey John, welcome, hope you enjoy your visits.  The Lounge sounds really interesting, Chicago has quite a magical history.

Always good that people have these little magic theaters. Welcome, John. Hope to get a stay in Chicago one day. I've changed planes there, driven through, but never stayed.

Thanks, everyone. That link again is http://www.chicagomagiclounge.com

Last week, we were able to publicly announce our plans to create a standalone, permanent location for a full-time Chicago Magic Lounge. We'll be doing a groundbreaking ceremony with all the trimmings in a few weeks, and hope to have the place open in late 2017. It'll be the first full-time magic bar in Chicago since Schulien's closed in 1999.

John gave me a tour of the Chicago Lounge last week when Jon Armstrong was there. It is FANTASTIC! Seven magi working the tables for an hour. Then a 20 min opening act. And then the headliner, Jon Armstrong. Jon opened with a sequence of rubber band items for a group of about 120 people! I would never have thought of doing that. It killed, BTW. Finally there was a 30 min close up show in the "back room."

Anyone within driving distance should check this place out.
