Does anyone do this as a final of the show?

I used to own it and performed it for a few years. It's a nice piece of magic.
I never considered it for the street for what are obvious reasons to me:

Props are a bit out of place, e.g. a briefcase
Repeat requires extras
Laminated cards seem out of place on the street and quite contrived
Angle issues unless you're using a servante instead of the briefcase but then where do you put the laminated cards?
What do you do with the replacement supplies and your leftover lemons?
Lemon juice destroys props. Just ask Kozmo.

There are a million other ways to do the same trick without having to do The Lemon Game.

A fine trick. An inconvenient venue for it.

Thanks Frank for your advice. Yeah, I understand, I will see if I can do some modifications, instead of cards maybe a clear force bag with the prizes. The briefcase it's on the floor and put on table when trick starts. But the juice it's a pain, yeah... thinking, thinking, thinking...

We own the Lemon Game, and have not used it in years for all the reasons Frank states above. It is just not practical. Some of the pictures on the cards are really dated, especially the computer one. We would have sold it long ago, but the lemon juice stained the inside of the brief case as well as the bag.

You should checkout Doc Eason's Bar Magic Video with the bill to lemon on it.
I believe the routine was originally Steve Spill's idea.

Nevertheless, a perfect street bill-to-lemon.

I've used Steve Spill's Bill to Lemon on the street, and it worked great!
