Last night at The Friendly Chef Adventures in Hillsburgh we had another sold out Magic & Martini. Chef Pam Fanjoy prepared a gourmet meal and the room was packed. Thank you to everyone who attended.

We have one upcoming performance scheduled for Friday, June 23 before we take a break for the summer. Readers can use the discount code shaken for a special price on tickets when purchasing online

Magic & Martini Returns

Happy New Year to everyone. After a bit of a break (which was actually a December packed with holiday parties and year-end celebrations) Magic & Martini will be returning tomorrow night for another season. Our last season was a great success with fourteen sold-out in the fall. 

Dates are now available for shows in Toronto, Oakville and Erin/Hillsburgh. Magic & Martini is an evening show that proves magic is really meant for grownups. Tickets are open to the public (19+). The show is an attempt to re-create the atmosphere of intimate hotel lounge performances of great magicians of the past. As a result, we have very limited seating and the first three shows in Toronto are already sold out

We'd love to see you at the show. Come for dinner & drinks and enjoy an evening of amazing magic. Readers of the blog can use the code secrets for a discount on the price of tickets. 

Magic & Martini in Hillsburgh

I'm thrilled to announce a special extension of Magic & Martini coming later this month. My new show, organized by the Grand Spirits Society will be coming to the Friendly Chef Adventures on Trafalgar Road in Hillsburgh. 

This comes as the remainder of our shows in Toronto and Oakville for the year are sold out!

The owner of the Friendly Chef is Pam Fanjoy, the winner of Chopped Canada. Pam will be preparing a special dinner for guests. Tickets for the show are available with the option to pre-order dinner. (You can see the show's special prix-fixe menu here.) 

This is further afield than any of my shows have been before, but if you live in the area, or know someone who does, please feel free to join us. Readers of this blog can use the code chopped for a special discount on the price of tickets when purchasing online. I look forward to seeing you there for an evening of fantastic food, finely crafted cocktails and some astonishing magic. 


Early bird tickets are also available for Toronto in 2017. You can book online now
