Sounds like someone needs to do some research and may not be ready yet.

Dear Magic_Man101

Go to Table hoppers and Party Strollers and do some research there.

The only way to get ready is to start building the right repertoire. There is a lot of good advice there about choosing the best effects from the start, before you've wasted time buying/learning impractical Magic for the venue.

Once you've got at least 6 strong, practical, effects, do a search on approaching the restaurant.

Don't rush it. If you try before you're ready it will shake your confidence later and may turn a potential client off for Magic.

Good luck!

How to approach them walk in the door at 10:30a.m. or 2:30p.m. ask for the manager or owner. Show them some great magic or offer to give them a demo of the few customers in the place then and there. Tell the people if they liked what the experienced, to tell the manager or owner before they leave.

With all due respect I disagree. What can you do for their bottom line? Entertainment ain't it.

Actually, most resturant owners think it is all about the food, decor, and service, is what sells the business. Most resturants want to increase their slow days of business.

I believe you have to have a good product to offer, if you do not have the personality and material, then how can you sell anything to the business.

Magic_Man, are you in a tourist city? If not you will have to change your material weekly for repeat customers. In a tourist city you can use the same material over and over, and only change a trick or two occassionally.

Remember, you will not have any time to learn new tricks, so you have to have a good base to begin with. If you have a 100 tricks that do not require any set up time or can be automatically reset at the finish of the trick, then you have a good start. You must be able to do all these tricks without thinking.
