Strolling Table to Table Entertainment
I'm a professional illusionist and mentalist who has worked with restaurants to increase the overall atmosphere of their establishments.
I've been looking for new restaurants around the Queen Village area and have chosen to post for any recommendations on philadelphiaspeaks.
I'm interested in hearing from you all -- where do you want to see me next?
I look forward to hearing your responses.
I like magicians, but absolutely hate being bothered when eating. If you're doing close up magic, there's Beau Monde and Society Hill Playhouse in our neighborhood that have small stages and seating for small audiences; they may be interested.
I didn't know Beau Monde has a stage...is it something they set-up for special events? What sort of shows do they have? Regardless, now you've made me really crave a crepe.

They may be worth a call.
Years ago there was a guy who did it at Downey's, Abilene's when they had upstairs dining, and this one bar/restaurant that was two doors away from beau monde(can't remember the name but it was blue and owned by Christian Dicicco).

I can completely understand that you may not wish to have a performer entertain you. I'm very selective about those who I perform for. I'm not the type of guy to go running up to your table with a wallet on fire saying "Look at this trick!"
I typically perform via request or if there is a long wait/back-up in the kitchen. I am familiar with the individual who worked at Downey's and have learned that they aren't seeking that type of entertainment at the moment.
I'll definitely check into Beau Monde and Society Hill Playhouse. I appreciate the suggestions! Keep 'em coming! :-)
I also remember Downeys (only like a year ago) having a guy show me some card tricks while I was at the bar. Not sure if he went with the rats and old kitchen appliances, but you can probably check with them!
