Re: Magic Castle Reservation

Unless you are escorted in by a member or on a performer's guest list, entrance requires a dinner reservation.

That is the weekend of the AMA awards show, so the Castle will be packed to capacity. Even members without dinner reservations might have a hard time getting in.
