Magicians gather at Rustico on Saturdays, in a longstanding tradition to share information, help each other with tricks, and socialize. The group is attended by magicians of all levels from beginners to working pros. Many future magic greats got their start by learning from fellow magicians at this weekly get-together. Anyone interested in magic is welcome to attend. [Please note that the group normally does not meet on the weekends of major holidays such as Labor Day, Memorial Day, and July 4th].
The Magic Table
Times Square Diner & Grill, 807 Eighth Avenue (49th Street)
Fridays at 1 p.m.
The Magic Table is another longstanding gathering for magicians. It has always been based in the Times Square area, harking to the time when the neighborhood was home to multiple magic businesses like the Tannen's and Max Holden magic stores. It is frequented by a group of dedicated regulars as well as magicians visiting New York and occasional surprise guests. (See a Today show piece about the group here).
Magnets is a newer group that meets for weekly jam sessions and also occasionally sponsors its own lectures, workshops and shows. This group is also open to everyone interested in magic. The location has recently changed and is not fixed. Check here for further information when available.
