I used to work in a oub years ago before I got into magic. The only thing I knew was the french drop. People loved it when Id play with theire change. Now cards are my thing and I have a good collection of tricks. The thing is, should I be just showing people tricks in an informal situation, I meant to say, going up to them in pubs and showing them, or should I be more tactful?

When I first got into magic, we used to do tricks for people in the bar all of the time. We were also regulars in the bar.

We had fun and we rareely had to pay for a drink.

If the bar you are visiting doesn't have a problem with it, give it a shot. (As long as you are not competing with regularly scheduled entertainment.)

Get That Money
If they like the magic at the bar and you do what you do well. Don't do it for free. You have to buy book,videos,gimmics,cards,coins. Hell make it worth your while. I mean don't go in there and demand a million, you'd be crazy. But let the bar personel know what it is you are going to do and if they would come to some kind of terms with you.
My thinking is if people start asking for you and you are out of town, the owner would be stupid not to go out and find a magician.
So let it be you.
Don't stop having fun just stop doing it for free...

Be true to your art, and it will be true to you
