Peter's Finally Friday Blog - WOE Complex Tour - The Disappearing Plate and Sally is now in a magic show!
Hello, my fellow WOE Friends!
We made it to the end of the week! Hopefully, you accomplished something good or maybe even something great!
Speaking of something great; Sally, my seventeen-year-old daughter, and magic lover has started as an assistant for Mr. Minselli, her idol. Her first show was today. She will be helping with two to three shows a week while she attends school, and a few more when she has a break. She also started part-time as a hostess for the Magic Plate. She's starting to earn her own money.
She gets to help with two to three big illusions on stage. She is also learning to do card tricks. She hopes soon to be doing close-up magic in the Houdini Theater queue or The Magic Plate Restaurant. She wishes to be a teacher, like her mom, but she's doing the magic for pure fun! Go, Sally!
We have a brand new WOE Short Story: Back to the Elevator in the Graveyard. Alex returns to the place he never thought he world again. This new story follows the WOE Short Story: The Elevator in the Graveyard. You can find both in the WOE Short Stories section.

I have attached the latest HR Picture: Kids Mimic their Parent's Ability.
If you haven't read this week's WOE Cares Need to Know topic: Autism Spectrum Disorder, please do. It has crucial information every parent should definitely read, and it's great for anyone to have this understanding of what Autism really is. Knowing is the first step to understanding.
This week's WOE Complex tour: The Magic Plate
I mentioned this restaurant in the WOE Story. Sally, Jennifer and I ate there a few nights ago, and man is it a blast.
The whole restaurant is loaded with special effects and has roaming magicians that perform close-up magic at your table. There are also several small stages where magicians will bring up a guest and perform a trick or illusion. Everything is broadcast on screens around the restaurant.
The Magic Plate is very highly themed and interactive, much like Dining in the Basement, in The Dark Room. As you enter and wait to be seated, the tricks start coming. Portraits on the wall change, and things from across the room appear and disappear.
When we got our menu's, we were looking at all the choices, when all of a sudden, all the prices disappeared. Then they came back. We also had a candle on our table that would periodically extinguish itself and then reignite.
One of the magicians who came to our table made me laugh so hard, I almost spit out a mouth full of food. His name was Bill, and he was fantastic at coin tricks. He made Sally's eyes get huge several times.
The roaming magicians spend about five minutes at each table, and you will likely have two to three during the time you are there. Plus, there will be a periodic stage show somewhere around you.
It's a lot of fun, and if you have the WOE Meal Plan, you can use a lunch or dinner credit and pay nothing more. As usual at the WOE, drinks, and tax are always included, and there is no tipping. At the end of your meal, you get up and walk out. I love it!
I hope you have a great weekend. Please keep those who have sacrificed themselves for this country in your thoughts and prayers on Memorial Day.
Thanks for reading! Until next time,
