Hello Friends and 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, here  is a quick refresher video of who I am and what I do.

Each month I will post videos on wines I have reviewed as well as a best buy guide for wines at different prices giving you a chance to buy wines with confidence from your local retailer or online.

However, the best part of this newsletter is that I will 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 some A-hole already leaked it, and since it’s out… I’ll consider it public domain.
 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. If someone ask you how you learned it tell them to go to my website and email me.
I will also update you about my current adventures and major happenings in the magic and wine worlds. I’ll also let you know where I’m touring or performing for the upcoming month if you want to come see me perform in person or grab a glass of wine with me if I’m in your neck of the woods.

This Month’s Videos and Press

First the Press,  I was just named the most unique business in America by Yelp…

Today’s video is a simple yet strong trick with a difficulty rating of 1. The trick is a vanish and retrieval of a toothpick. It is angle sensitive and needs about five minutes in front of the mirror to perfect. Good luck, email me with questions. Click below for the trick.
