if it will make you feel any better, I live in Hawaii, so I won't be able to go to the Magic Convention OR David Copperfield. (gotta work) Howzabout you give me a call when you're here and tell me how David did? Or at least to go have a drink and watch one of the hidden legends of close up work the bar. (Surprisingly, I speak not of myself, but Bobby Acoba. He actually lives by the rule that the magician shouldn't do anything but direct the proceedings. All the magic is done by the spectators. They choose the card, they shuffle, someone else cuts to the selected card, Bobby takes a bow.)
He'll also make you work for the crowd, but he'll buy you a drink.
email me your dates here if that sounds like a good time.
