Just want to give a BIG shout-out here to a fine magic presentation by Bob Solari and Bill Wisch for their "Metro-Magic 1" convention on Sunday in Lyndhurst, NJ. There were tons of coin guys there to see Steve Dushek, Darwin Ortiz, and Bobby Gallo do their thing. These guys were absolutely amazing. There were fine dealers all over the place and the magic just wouldn't stop. The Café here was well discussed and admired along with many members in attendance, like Mano, the very clever Eric Jones, Joe, Rob Elliot, even Mr. Jonathan Townsend, and the absolutely amazing Mickey Silver.
One of our own, Eric Jones pulled out about 100 coins from his bag and did a little something with nearly every one of them. The guy is amazing. And Mickey Silver, UNBELIEVABLE! Forget what you heard, seeing is believing...The guy is absolutely one-of-a-kind in his ability and personableness! It was a full fledge evening of great magic, especially of the coin, front and center stage or in the hall way on your way to the bathroom or going for a bite to eat - The magic was everywhere! After watching Duscheck and Darwin do some amazing things, then Bobby Gallo just hit you with another shot right between the eyes. It just wouldn't stop and folks just loved it.
Bob Solari and Bill Wisch were most gracious hosts and worked throughout the evening making sure all was well with everyone, and spared no expense in bringing in great talent and great interest to and from the magic community - They are to be applauded. It was pretty well organized, a lot of sessioning going on all over the place. Great place to see and learn from some of the very best coin men out there, as well as close-up and cards. Hey, was that David Roth???...You better believe it was.
Great job guys on this first one, the next one you're gonna need the Hilton. It was quite amazing and I can't wait to next year's get together. Wonder who's coming to that one??? Thanks so much for making it happen. It was absolute magic!
