A new magic shop opened here in Melbourne yesterday called 'Trick or Treat'. It's a magic shop & rehearsal studio/party centre run by Tammii & Tim You, combined with a gourmet cafe and catering service run by Tim's brother Brad (Chef) and his wife Erin.
As far as I know this is a first in the world of magic and it's working incredibly well! Yesterday hundreds of families turned up and, while the kids went crazy in the magic shop, the parents enjoyed coffee and cake in the cafe. A week before they opened they'd had over 60 enquiries from people wanting to have birthday parties there and, on the opening day, almost a dozen reserved dates for their functions.

Does anyone know of any other magic shop in the world like this?
