stretch-limoThis month I received the reprint of my book Bamboozlers Two.  These books continue to do well and I receive many compliments on them from around the world.  Volume Three was released in June and I am slowly writing Volume Four.

I’m having a blast at my new gig Boston’s in McKinney.  See the show times in my blog for October. Magicians are already trying to steal this gig like the one that was stolen from me last year.  I love magicians for the most part but there are a select few out there with no scruples.  Anyways, if you are a non-magician who likes to see magic up close then I hope you’ll come out and see me and support Boston’s.  The atmosphere is great and the food is amazing.  My favorites are the double-meat pizza and the spinach and artichoke dip.

pinball-tourI worked for many regular clients this month, had some radio spots, played in some Texas Hold’em tournaments, and hung out with my friends the Trippis a few nights.  Next week I have four gigs two of which are at the Dallas Market Center.  We have a “thankful for friends” celebration dinner planned, a Thanksgiving packed with family and food, and lots more shows before the month’s end.

One highlight this month was going on my friend’s Jared Guynes pinball tour.  Jared, who helped build my new website, rented a limo and 13 of us joined him to hit three of the largest private pinball-arcade collections around town.  Each collection surpassed the other and it was a fun-filled day with lots of new friends.  The limo was packed but we had lots of laughs and a great lunch at Quaker Steak & Lube.  Yes, it’s a real place, and better than I imagined.  One of the home’s had my favorite arcade game called Omega Race.  It was a day full of good memories that made me feel like a teenager again.  I did lots of magic for those in attendance and booked a party out of it.  Thanks again Jared!  I’m looking forward to your Ninja Turtle / Vanilla Ice party in February of 2014.
