For over ten years, Jim Sisti's The Magic Menu has held a unique position in magic as a consistent, reliable source of information for working professional restaurant and bar magicians, written by working professionals.
Each quarterly issue is packed with information for the working performer, with helpful articles, honest and concise reviews and, of course, original magic from established professionals and unknown pioneers making their mark.
Issue 63 focuses on Alternative Venues for the close-up performer. High school graduation/post-prom parties are examined by editor Jim Sisti as are supermarket promotions by Phil Smith. Co-editor Andrew J. Pinard takes a look at how your approach can effect the way others view magic and magicians and staff writer Dave Shepherd interviews magician and "deep thinker" David Parr about theatricality in close-up magic.
Also in this issue, regular columnists Paul Green, Richard Robinson, Eric Henning and David Acer are rejoined by Andrew Pinard with his "Nuts & Bolts" column, where he tackles the often-controversial topic of performing fees. Mark Zacharia reviews the School for Scoundrel's "Street Shells" and Harvey Berg's "Final Exam."
