    Valentines Dinner Party Monday Feb. 6, 2017 - Sky Buffet. Milford, MA. Barn members hosted a Valentines dinner along with live magical entertainment. Many thanks to the amazing (volunteer) close-up performers. Thankfully, no cards fell into the Lo Mein. Our party concluded with a duo of parlor performances. Steve Brenner magically made a volunteer run to the bathroom with excitement. Dennis Pimenta produced an adorable bunny and many laughs. Bravo!

    Card In Pocket - A Classic

    1. Spectator mixes the deck and counts down to a thought of number between 1 and 10 and remembers that card. Replace selection on top of deck and place remainder of cards on top of all.

    2. Magician places the deck behind back and puts bottom card on top and places the next bottom card into his pocket telling spectator that this is his card.

    3. Count down to thought of number, place the card at that number aside on table. Palm off the top card of the deck and remove it from pocket as if it is really the thought of card.

    Mr. Fingers teaches a simple miracle with cards.. give it a try!

    Magic Barn recollections - Jim Rainho, Shawn Farquhar & Parker Swan.
