What?!? It's [i]very[/i] easy to get from Hicksville, New York to NYC! You can take the Long Island Railroad from Hicksville right into Penn Station.

(Yes, there really is a Hicksville, New York. I grew up in the next town over, Bethpage.)

As Chanor already posted two days ago, not only is Maven giving a performance at Monday Night Magic, he's doing a lecture as well, sponsored by Tannen's.

Max's best line at the lecture:

"Mentalism is fast becoming to the 21st century what packet magic was to the 70s and 80s."

Second best line: (as Marc Salem in the audience successfully picked out the predicted envelope out of six possibilities) "[With Maven-cocked eyebrow] I guess he really is as good as they say . . . "
