The Saturday magicians group has met regularly for decades, according to some longtime members since the 1940s. Prior locations include Cafe Rustico, Governor Cafeteria, and Reubens Deli. Most recently the meetings were briefly held at another deli on 33rd Street.
The group has been one of the hubs of the New York City magic community, a place to learn from other magicians, share knowledge, try out new tricks, and pick up the latest news. Over the years many notable magicians have attended the get-togethers during the course of working on their skills and building their careers, however it is a resource that is available to anyone who is interested in magic. We have a separate write up about the group in our Magic Guide (scroll down until you find the blog post "Magic Guide, NYC).
We will stay up to date on the status of the group's locations and report back with an update if anything changes.
