Hello Friends & Welcome to Ben Silver’s Monthly Newsletter.
Being the World’s Only Magician and Certified Sommelier this Newsletter will focus on 2 things, you guessed it… Wines and Illusions.
For those of you who haven’t seen me in a while Click Below to see my current promo video.
Each month I will post 2 videos.
One video on wines I have tasted and reviewed. This gives you reassurance to buy wines with confidence from your local retailer or online.
However, the second video is the best part of this newsletter. I TEACH YOU MAGIC! That’s right, it’s against magician’s code but the magic I teach you has already been leaked, that doesn’t mean it isn’t impressive, it just means someone leaked it already.
All of these tricks will be fairly simple with few minutes of practice and will make you the best Grandma/ Grandpa/ Uncle/ Dad/ Mom/ dinner party guest. However, I strongly urge you not to share the secrets because if everyone could do it, it wouldn’t be cool.
I will also update current press about myself and/or the magic and wine communities. I will let you know where I’m touring or performing this month. Please come see me or drink a glass of wine with me if I’m in your neck of the woods.
This Month’s Videos and Press
Magic Trick of the Month
Today’s video is a simple yet strong trick with a difficulty rating of 3. The trick is a Torn and Restored magazine page. It is slightly angle sensitive and needs about 7- 10 minutes in front of the mirror to perfect. Good luck, email me with questions.
