My actual birthday was last Monday but the real celebration took place Saturday at The Magic Castle. I had really high expectations going in and, thankfully, it didn’t disappoint.
We were required to have dinner at the castle but after we were free to wander. On our way to one of the main shows we found a guy sitting at a table by himself. When we realized he was a magician we asked for some magic and he obliged. I assisted in a few of his tricks but felt too much pressure. I was over analyzing the simplest commands like “pick a card” or “stick your finger through this cigar cutter”. When that was finished we caught two main shows and two smaller acts.
Even though each performer made it very clear that whatever we saw was an illusion or sleight of hand, I still found myself asking “WHAT? HOW?” after every act.
It was just a great time and if any of you have the opportunity to go, GO.
My family booked this months ago. I was warned well in advance they have a strict dress code but didn’t bother checking until a week before. Luckily I still had enough time to make a dress.
To end the week I went to Father’s Office with my siblings. They’re known for the Office Burger which is rated one of the best in the world. While I wasn’t blown away by it, my brother teared up after the first bite. I’m not kidding.
Hope all of you had a great week!
