I've been a hobbiest-beginner for about a year. Never performed. I wanted to entertain my mom at the restaurant this weekend, but I chickened out at teh last minute and didn't bring any props. But at the restaurant I thought, "What the hell," asked the waitress for two rubber bands, and was amazed at the big reaction I got from that little jumping band trick. Emboldened, I vanished a drinking straw... and then another. Now I was getting looks from the next table. I asked the waitress for a paper towel, and I vanished the salt shaker using Al Schneider's routine.

They were asking for more, and I couldn't believe these simple tricks played so well. I was kicking myself for not bringing sponge balls and coins. And don't get me started on D'Lites. I would have leveled the place.

I AM SO HOOKED! I can do this, and I'm lovin' it!

Just had to share.

Some of the best tricks are the impromptu ones! When people see you grab a bunch of stuff and improvise with it, it's more impressive than pulling out a bunch of stuff from your pockets - you get much more credit.

When learning magic we often see magicians performing for magicians. The tricks are elaborate and difficult. We forget that the simple tricks are miracles for a lay audience.

Congratulations on becoming an entertainer.

This is exactly why there are countless threads here on the Café about "What do you always carry with you" "What do you never leave home without"

mine is a couple decks of cards, a sharpie, my Wallet for CTW some rubber bands on my wrist. a silk and a TT and a pocket full of "change"

Oh, and if you ever get Greg Wilson's On the Spot video, you will see a very nice impromptu spongeball routine with napkins. Worth thinking about for your restaurant performances.
