As many of you know, the New York Magic Table, which is a longstanding tradition in the City, takes place on Fridays at lunchtime at The Café Edison in Times Square.

This tradition has been going on for a long time and has been kept alive since the passing of Mike Bornstein by SAM Member Tom Klem who is the Host of the table.

The table has regulars such as Jerry Oppenheimer as well as folks who just show up from other states and countries who are all made to feel welcome.

It is a wonderful tradition that continues right in the heart of the theater district in Times Square.

The Café Edison which is the restaurant in which the Magic Table has been meeting since the 1980's is in danger of being closed at the end of December 2015.

The building owners have announced that they will not renew the restaurant's lease.

This restaurant is a rarity in New York in that you can get a decent meal for a fair price. The cheeseburger deluxe which comes with fries, cole slaw, a pickle spear, lettuce and tomato costs about $8.50. Good luck finding that for such a price in a sit down restaurant with a nice clean bathroom in the city.

The entertainment community, New York City residents and the Magic Community are spearheading a campaign to save the Café Edison. New York City politicians are also getting involved.

If you want to read more about the table, go to the Placematters website to read about its rich history.

Also, if you care to sign a petition to save the Café Edison and the Magic Table, please feel free to go to Change.Org and sign the petition.

The owners of the Café have always been very kind to the Magic Community by reserving a table for us even when the Café has been full to capacity and they have never tried to rush us along in order to give the table to other waiting patrons.

Please sign the petition to help keep the Café open and to keep the Magic Table right where it has been for years and where it should stay.

Thank you.
