Just found out about this event. It's happening this evening and it's free to register. Matt Baker will be introducing the presenter at the 4:00 session. Looks fascinating! 

Amaze and amuse your family and friends armed with just a deck of cards and a little insider knowledge, thanks to blogger, author, and Spelman College math professor Colm Mulcahy.  Professor Mulcahy will demonstrate, explain, and teach several original mathemagical creations that will highlight the power of mathematics to educate and entertain.  BYOC (Bring Your Own Cards)!

Prof. Mulcahy has a cool book titled "Mathematical Card Magic." He'll probably mention it today. It's an eBook. Unfortunately it's not a PDF download. You have to go to a special site and use their reader. There's a lot of math involved, too. So be aware.

Yeah but it's combinatorics - the fun side of math!
