I am going to vegas and wanted to know if there are any magic shops around there or any card magicians to see do close up magic

Most of the bigger casinos have the Houdini's Magic Shop, but check out Denny & Lee's for the pro shop. I'm not sure who's working close up around town, but I think some of the magic magazines carry that info.

Definitely check out Mac King's show. It's amazing.

Also, check out Boomers. It's a bar out away from the strip that has all the magicians meeting there... I think on Wednesday nights.

The Houdini shops are complete crap. They sold me my first trick years ago (the UFO floating card), it was a little more on the difficult side so I gave up. Luckily I finally got back into magic and started with some easier self working stuff. I went back to one recently (a different one from the first one) and they were pushing the same *** trick. A lady asked what would be good for her ten year old son and they pushed the trick on her as well. I advised her not to buy it. I was really upset that a store with Houdini's name on it would have such a bad selection of tricks.

Definitely check out Denny's & Lee's Shop and also make sure to see Mac King's show (1pm & 3pm at Harrah's). Stay away from World's Greatest Magic Show, just saw it a few weeks ago and it was pretty bad.
