At this years FFFF I presented a tribute to the magic performed at the Forks Hotel by Eddie Karl and others. I posted it on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnVfAai-MbM

If you have a photo of anyone working the tables at the Forks I would like to include it in the video. email me magicrcook@aol.com

I was wondering who presented this tribute. A friend of mine sent this to me from Buffalo. I watched with tears in my eyes. You see, I new and worked with all of these guys at the Forks in the 70's. Very few still around.

Could someone tell us the subsequent history of the Forks hotel after Eddie died? I remember reading the Ray Mertz column in The Magic Menu that it was remodeled and did have magic/magicians there afterwards...but what happened then? And when did it close? Just curious.
