I always have card warp with me. That has been my go-to pocket trick for over 30 years.
I must have done it many hundreds of times by now. Always plays well.

The first thing I do is Ring Thing with my ring or a spectator's one. Something with one coin also is frequent. After, if it gets serious, I go on with cards or other stuff that I have in my wallet.

I will always carry a ring, a silver dollar, a sharpie, and business cards everywhere I go just in case someone asks to see something. Then if it comes up that I perform magic (notice I said IF, not when; I feel like that mentality makes an important difference in your approach to impromptu performance), bam, I'm ready to show some magic.

That said, the only extra gimmick I will always carry for a specific effect is a shrinkie sharpie (homemade) for some fun visual sharpie magic! Credit to Homer Liwag, learned it from his Rice Papers. I get excited when I go somewhere and see a sharpie. You can shrink it then restore it instantly, or, if they don't particularly care about the sharpie and I'm making an impression, I'll shrink it down and just give it to them as a fun keepsake. I add a dab of gorilla glue to the cap so it will never come off (not that it's likely to anyway, but JIC), and most fun loving people won't try too hard to get the cap off of their souvenir. Then I'll just ditch their sharpie to a pocket and make another later. Great self-supplying effect.

Pocket Space Plus is very strong imho when performed well. I bring out both the “deck” card and prediction card at same time and it blows people’s minds.

A mentor taught me: "Dogs do tricks. Magicians do magic."

If there are children, I'll do a strike vanish with a pencil an pull the coin from the kid's ear. Depending on the reaction, I might do a follow up of ring and spring (personal favorite). If the kid is good, I'll let 'em keep the prop.

With adults, I'll do something quick with a copper/silver.

I haven't had any wise guys ask for (demand) a trick here in Montana, but when happened back east, I had a bunch of abusive humor to accompany a trick. I don't believe in abusing anyone, but I made exceptions for wise guys and bullies.
