Recently, I heard a lot of chatter about the Magician at the NoMad hotel and how amazing the performance was. So, since I am on a big kick of entertainment-is-better-than-dinners-out, we went with some friends on Friday night. To say HOLY SMOKES is an understatement. It was absolutely incredible and a must see. HOLY SMOKES! Amazing, ridiculous, smart, and oh so magical. It was unclear what to expect, but I knew that the Magician, Dan White, is widely respected, and therefore, I was hopeful for a good show. And indeed, it was a good show. And has left me thinking about it since the performance. Regardless of how Dan makes the magic happen, he is a genius and oh so smart.
I actually volunteered and had a pretty insane part in one of the tricks. It was WILD. Without giving anything away, someone read my mind (heard me yelling it) when he touched her forehead.
RUN to the NoMad. RUN. It is FUN and DIFFERENT (versus another dinner at a restaurant), and I highly HIGHLY recommend going to see The Magician at the NoMad. He is absolutely spectacular and memorable.
