Going to Chicago

Postby Guest » October 22nd, 2005, 8:56 pm

I am from Seattle, WA and I am heading to Chicago and I am looking for anything having to do with magic. I was wondering if there are any magic stores or shops that are really good to check out. Maybe there is a convention that is going on that I should check out of even a jam session to go to. Hope to hear from you.

You might also want to see the longest running theatrical magic show in the city, "Supernatural Chicago," as reviewed in the January 2005 issue of Genii.

Or "The Houdini Seance," which is being presented on behalf of the Chicago Assembly of the Society of American Magicians.

For more about both of these events, please visit www.SupernaturalChicago.com
