So we are intrested to see magic shows, shops, meet magicians, etc.

Definitely stop by Tannen's, which is found at 45 W. 34th St., Suite 608, between 5th and 6th Aves.

Also, just around the block is Cafe Rustico, where you can find folks like Sol Stone, Wesley James, etc, on Saturday afternoons between 12 and 6 or so. That's on 35th between 5th and 6th. Brian already mentioned Maui Taco, which is where you'll generally find Doug Edwards and other folks.

Finally, check out Monday Night Magic if you have the opportunity. They just recently moved to a new theater which I hear is their best place yet.

What ever happened to the famous Fridays at the Polish Tea Room? Does anyone still go there, or have I been out of the business too long?

You should also try to catch Simon Lovell's show at the SoHo Playhouse on Saturday night, and Steve Cohn Chamber Magic show on Friday if tickets are still available...

Dear Hanno Rhomberg:

The S.A.M. Magic Table continues to meet on Fridays at the Edison Hotel Cafe on 47th Street between Broadway and 8th Ave. in Manhattan. They meet from 12:30 to 3:00. This past month some of the vistors to the Table were George and Nina Schindler, Lee and Jerry Oppenheimer, Eric DeCamps, Bob Friedhoffer, Torkova, Ed Goldsmith. Tony Robins, and Albert Lasher. I am always there as the host.

Starting at the Hotel Dixie this Magic Table has met in Times Square since the early 1940s. A that time NYC was the hub of the magic world and many magicians gathered weekdays at the Table.

Today the gathering at the Table usually is small - 5 to 6 people. I would visit Maui Tacos at 330 Fifth Avenue (32nd Street and 5th) on Saturday afternoon and" the Pizza place" Rustico's on 35th St between 5th and 6th Avenues the same day.There different magicians at each of these locations.

If you or any of the Genii Forum members are in NYC please join us at the Table. If you have question you can reach me at my office at 212 725 5258.
