Re: iPad App

Re: Magic and/or food in Phoenix?

Book dealer, Andy Greget, is located in Scottsdale. He doesn't have a website or email so a phone call is required. Easely's Costume and Fun Shop is still in business I believe. The caveat is that it's magic section is small.

Yes - I concur with the others. There are many wonderful restaurants.

Re: M-U-M to be reduced to 10 issues each year.

Its most likely an issue of cost control. SAM as well as many social organizations are struggling. Membership is aging. Younger people do not seem interested in club meetings. It would not be unexpected that at some point in the future clubs like IBM, SAM, Eagles, Elks, and others will vanish.

Re: Gonzo "hands empty" move

The gimmick was a Ed Mellon Jim Swoger creation. I purchased one as a kid in the late 60's from Swoger's House of Enchantment. Swoger made it look like a miracle - thus the name, Miracle Money. I believe Meir credits them.

Maybe I am missing something but if there is an act or event at a convention one doesn't want to see, then simply skip that event. Or choose not to attend the convention. Last I checked there are no magic police rounding people up and making them attend. :)
