Chicago Magic Lounge, Chicago’s home for close-up magic, celebrates its one-year groundbreaking anniversary with “Magic Day” Thursday, June 7, 2018. Officially declared “Magic Day” by the Cook County Board of Commissioners, Chicago Magic Lounge will host an evening of incredible talent while celebrating the Chicago Magic Community and its contributions to Chicago-style magic.
The special evening kicks off with a champagne reception at 5:30 p.m. in the Harry Blackstone Cabaret. Invited guests will get a real treat as Chicago Magic Lounge welcomes members of the Chicago Session including Simon Aronson, David Solomon and David Finkelstein, for an intimate Q&A. The celebratory evening continues at 7:30 p.m. with the Mainstage Signature show starting with an hour of close-up magic, followed by stage performances by Chicago magicians John Sturk and Trent James. More magic ensues throughout the evening, but a magician never reveals all of their tricks!
The official declaration of “Magic Day” was made on June 6, one day prior to the momentous groundbreaking of the Chicago Magic Lounge. Stating, “Now therefore, be it resolved, the President and the Members of the Cook Country Board of Commissioners, congratulate Chicago Magic Lounge on the occasion of its groundbreaking and for its contributions to the history, local economy and community fabric in the Andersonville neighborhood and Chicago at large, and do hereby declare June 7 shall henceforth be known as ‘Magic Day’.”
The newly constructed theater at 5050 N. Clark St., designed by Morris Architects Planners, has ushered in a new wave of entertainment, bringing back “Chicago Style Magic” under the leadership of Donald C. Clark, Jr. and Joseph (Joey) Cranford. From magicians to mind readers, Chicago Magic Lounge provides guests the unique, one-of-a-kind experience of seeing wonders up-close and personal in a venue unlike anything else offered throughout the country.
