The Future and Past Collide (in a good way)

Sunday August 5 is another Young Adults Night where young men and women who have reached the ripe old age of 13 can enjoy the Magic Castle during evening hours (in the company of an adult). Remember that the dress code applies!
Were Hot for Firefighters (in a good way)!
Firefighters Appreciation Night is August 6 and honors the men and women of the LAFD who saved our cherished Magic Castle last October. $45* includes a buffet, roaming performers, a full lineup of shows, beer and wine tasting, and more. The festivities start at 5:30.
