I am super excited to announce our End of Summer road trip to the "Chicago Magic Lounge". What is the Chicago Magic Lounge you might ask. In there own words, "Converted from a 1940s-era, commercial laundry building, the Chicago Magic Lounge is a 7,200 square-foot, Deco-style, state-of-the-art theater and lounge complete with secret doors, elegant performance areas and speakeasy magic bar – all dedicated to the art of sleight of hand, prestidigitation and Chicago's contribution to the magical arts. This is a one-of-a-kind experience that we cannot wait for you to see."

If that wasn't enough David Williamson will be Lecturing and performing. David was recently honored with the award for 'Magician of the Year' by the Academy of Magical arts in Hollywood. Considered to be one of the world's most talented magicians, David Williamson knows the secret of capturing the imagination of any audience. A born showman and an unusually accomplished sleight of hand artist, David dazzles audiences with a unique and delightful brand of entertainment, blending heart-stopping magic with sidesplitting hilarity. David has been featured on ABC's Champions of Magic, where he appeared with Princess Stephanie as he performed his miracles at different locations in and around Monaco. David has also co-starred in several top-rated prime-time network specials including CBS' Magicians' Favorite Magicians, NBC's Houdini: Unlocking His Mysteries, and NBC's World's Greatest Magic III. He was seen recently on The CW's Masters Of Illusion TV series as well as America's Got Talent. In 1981 David won first place in the International Brotherhood of Magicians' sleight of hand competition. That year he also became the first ever recipient of the prestigious Gold Cups Award of Excellence in close-up magic. David was voted "Close Up Magician of the Year" two years in a row by his peers at Hollywood's renowned Magic Castle. He was also twice awarded the "Magic Castle Lecturer of the Year" and the "Magic Castle Parlor Magician of the Year". David was voted "Most Wanted Magician" at the 2003 FISM convention in Den Haag.
