My good friend Gene Urban is simply amazing with his card tricks and mind games. Seriously. If you haven’t had a chance to meet Gene or to see him blow people’s minds with a deck of cards, you are missing out.
Gene often performs for companies like Lucent, Google, UBS, The NFL, Microsoft and more, but some of us local yokels that hang out with Gene know that he rarely goes anyplace without a deck of cards in hand. Luckily, the super-cool people at The Duce in downtown’s warehouse district have invited Gene to share his magic with people on Tuesday nights at 6:30.
What: Super cool magic tricks
Where: The Duce 525 South Central Avenue ( Central and Lincoln )
When: Tuesday nights 6:30PM to approximately 9PM
Why: The place is cool; it will blow your mind.
One of the best examples of Gene performing for a local group was his impromptu performance at the Lucky Strike grand opening. As we were leaving, a group of Lucky Strike employees were gathered near the front door and Gene happened to ask one of the pretty little ladies if she believed in magic. As Gene performed a few card tricks, I had to laugh at the utter dis-belief the girls had for what they were watching.
The Duce is “a restaurant & lounge, entertainment destination, vintage one-stop shop, a coffee joint, old-fashioned soda fountain, fresh produce and dairy market, news-comics-candy stand, old school gym & vintage bike shop…and that ain’t all!” Go check it out, it is one of many cool new destinations popping up in the downtown area.
