Philadelphia, PA - Loss of A Magical Place

Where local magicians eat, meet, and greet.

A few weeks ago, I took a trip to Philadelphia with some friends and my godson, who shares my passion for magic. Looking around the web for some place to visit, I turned up some very interesting descriptions of Irv Furman's Hocus Pocus Magic Shop, so we planned an excursion.

I called the place several times, but the phone didn't seem to be working. Doing a little more searching, I finally came across the shop's website ( www.phillymagic.com ), which sadly includes the following:

"NOTICE: IRV FURMAN PASSED AWAY A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS. DUE TO THIS ALL PURCHASING HAS BEEN SUSPENDED."

Looks like we missed something special.
