David roth was in the lobby talking to Mickey Silver About 9pm.I sat next to Ken Krenzel at the close up show.Rich Morrata was also there.
I wish I had seen. Jonathan Townsand but I missed him.When I saw Mickey Silver I looked for a name badge saying Vinny but didn't see him either.
As denny said the dvd Steve was selling from 1982 had most of the effects. It only cost $10.
VcosNJ his site is stevedusheck. Just google it.
This is my 17th year on being a member of the cafe.

Just want to give my 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!

Mickey emailed last night to say that Roth showed up later that evening. That's good, and Ken Krenzel, Herb Zarrow and a few others made quiet appearances. Quite a turnout. There are a few nice pics of Mickey and SteveD clowning around at the restaurant in the afternoon. Had lunch next to Meir Yedid, Dick Brooks, DorothyD and Bob Little. Got to meet Eric and Marion there and then had to get moving around 6pm. Nice and social gathering. Smile

Did you folks catch Darwin setting up from a brand new pack while talking for his first effect? Impressive.

Mr. Townsend, Darwin is quite phenomenal. Got a chance to catch his act and he's exceptional, on another level, a real pro. Also, got a chance to meet and speak with Mr. Roth and he was pretty nice. He actually was more interested in Darwin and his cards than anything else. He had a very big smile on his face as he watched Darwin separate an entire deck into suits from memory, calling each card before turning it over, center dealing all the way. Remarkable! I like cards but not like I like coins, but it's hard not to like someone as gifted as Darwin Ortiz.

Hey Mr. Townsend, wish I had asked you to show me your VCA, been wanting to see that from you. Maybe next time for sure, ok?

I was there from 10:30am to 5:30 or 6pm. Even got to say hello to Marion (MB...) and we got along. Are you going to NEMCON?

Welcome! My name is Mark Zacharia and I had the privilege of performing in the lobby area during Metro-Magic. This gave me the opportunity to meet so many of you! It is energizing to be surrounded by genuine magic enthusiasts. Bob Solari is one of the true gentlemen of the magic community. He went out of his way to make sure everyone felt taken care of during his convention. Next year promises to be even better! Bob won't let me tell you the other pros whom he has signed yet for next year's lectures and close-up sessions, but I will be there lecturing and sessioning with you again. Please make a point of telling me you're from The Magic Café!--Mark Zacharia
