Facebook

Had a fabulous time bringing #thewonder to the folks at Facebook a couple of weeks ago.  

The group was working hard in "lockdown mode" and needed a break. Nothing that 30 minutes of mind reading couldn't fix. A good time was had by all. 

Family House FANGtastic Halloween Gala

Saturday, October 29th, we entertained in the VIP Cocktail Reception for Family House's FANGtastic Halloween Gala.

The event took place in the penthouse of The Fairmont, in San Francisco. It was my first time at The Fairmont, which is now one of my favorite venues. The Penthouse offers an amazing view of downtown San Francisco from it's large patio.

There are multiple bedrooms and baths, spacious dining and living rooms, a billiard room. and a cylindrical, two-story library with a history and secrets all it's own.

One of the bookcases is actually a hidden door that leads to the roof. My hostess told me a couple of stories about two former presidents who used that door in very different ways. I'll tell you about it sometime.

There is also one new secret the library now holds -- a pack of cards set for a miracle on my next visit. 

A Beautiful Mystery and The Ugly Truth

I'm often asked if I know how all the magic works. If I were to see something performed, would I know how the secret. Sometimes yes, sometimes not.

So, let me introduce you to a beautiful mystery of the Piddington's -- a performance they gave over the radio, mind you. The Ugly Truth behind it is only a click away. I choose to #wonder about it. How about you?

Do let me know what you decide.

Wine & Wonder

Our son's school has an outstanding PTA which fosters a great sense of community. The big fundraising event each year is a gala evening for the grown-ups with a silent auction that includes "Pay-to-Play" events -- a variety of one-of-a-kind experiences hosted by parents to raise money for school programs.

Couldn't think of a better way to be involved than to organize an intimate, little evening of magic for a select audience.

As this was our first go at something like this, we capped the event at 5 couples and quickly met the limit. Guests arrived and were offered hors d'oeuvres, wine and beer. Once settled, I presented just over an hour of close-up magic behind the bar.

Hopefully this is the start of something special.

Event Planners need #THEWONDER too

Recently had the opportunity to emcee and perform at the #SFNaceGala2014 at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. Had a fabulous time reading minds of some of San Francisco's savviest event planners.
