    Here is an online photo album from the event - I am waiting on my own images.

    http://essentialeye.com/galleries/A-Barack-cadabra

    I should be easy to spot - only guy with a pocket square. (I also am wearing a black suit and a black tie and have a bit of unfortunate facial hair)

    I have already received one big booking as a result of being seen there, and we raised over 21,000 dollars that night!


    Damn magic man, you really are a Jew. [​IMG]
    Very cool though. Glad you're gettin some other exposure too.

    Looked like fun!! Wish i could have been there...!

    I'm looking at picture 10 of your slide show, and it looks as if you have some chalk or powder on your suit! Magic really does get dirty, doesn't it?? Unless I'm dumb and it's actually not there..[​IMG]

    He is the genuine article. Mr. Lesko was a delightful person, as was his wife and son. I have to say, despite the rather loud pattern, his suit was very well-tailored. He lives in Rockville, MD incidentally.

    Hope you lit a candle and drank a tall, slow bourbon Friday night.

    I guess the Riddler-pattern isn't very popular in ready-to-wear.

    I feel very validated.

    The high-end restaurant that I was in negotiations with for a regular performance gig, that had said they would have "loved to have me in better economic times," turned out to be telling the truth as they just shuttered their doors.

    Until LK has declared his out-ness in a letter to Prof Fabulous, he is not to be "trusted" as a true-blue (or true-pink) Ghey. One must follow certain protocols when coming Out.

    Thats really great man, I hope that it happens for you. As long as you got a bit of free time and use of the facilities, working on a cruise ship for a while would be pretty cool!!

    No questions, but I just wanted to mention that that sounds like a great opportunity.

    P.S. I finally picked up An Expert at the Card Table.
