I should be in Honolulu staying at the Hale Koa Resort beginning next Tuesday Jan. 18- Friday Jan. 28. I will be attending the magic show at the Hale Koa and was wondering if there is more magic stuff, etc. going on. Thanks.

Is that the one that a few years ago had some POGS for a local young magician? I found a book (don't remember which) there so our visit was worth it.

The wonderful Curtis Kam used to have the main show at the hotel but is no longer there. He does perform at "Dave and Busters" (or something like that) doing walk around. I'm sure you'll find him somewhere amazing people. He's worth tracking down.

There is (was?) a large production show at another hotel called "The Magic Of Polynesia" that is worth seeing. Very polished and professonal.

There is also a local magic group (IBM or SAM) consisting of some good folks. While performing at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Liz and I gave a small lecture to the group regarding two person mentalism. You may be able to catch a lecture. I'm sure you'll be welcome with open arms.

All in all we found the magic community to be very congenial.

Have a good time,
Ted (Leondo)

Besides IBM & SAM chapters, there is also a large independent Magician's Guild, "Pacific Rim Inner Secrets of Magic" (PRISM); Contact Dennis Awai at (808) 753-1138;

Curtis is no longer at the Dave & Busters; I was able to take in his closing performance, he performed the "Rat Trap" effect, the audience loved it;

Mark Allen Maricio has replaced Curtis at the Hale Koa, I hear he is very good;
