For gambling sleights, are any of the magicians posting in this thread familiar with Darwin Ortiz? I would love to see him live... used to do some card stuff (hobby, and never great at it), and he was my absolute hero.

For me, Ricky Jay is one of those that continues to blow my mind regardless if I can follow what's going on or not.

I love Ricky Jay - and he's a decent actor in his own right.

The Magic Castle is an incredible spot. I grew up with a now-retired professional magician as a father, and every year or so would attend for a sunday brunch. I still have yet to go during the evening following my 21st, but I can definitely say this is the kind of place you want to go, at least once. I'll echo that the parlors are where the magic happens (pardon the pun), my dad still goes often and says the talent in recent years has been up and down but the closeup is solid.
