Schedule Change For Wow Cafe and Wingery

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I will be performing at Wow Cafe and Wingery this Sunday at 12:00pm-2:00pm, September 2 rather than tomorrow from 8pm-10pm.   Today was spent mostly getting some things done for a new magic trick I am learning (always trying to come up with new material to perform)  shopping and paying bills (ohh yes, the bills, don’t we all pay bills).  Other than that, not much really to write about.  Anyway, I hope everybody is having a wonderful week!

Another Day Running the Business

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Just another day running the business!  I had to get the gift certificates for my confirmed monthly e-mail subscribers.   Drew two names and waiting to hear back from them.  Also been doing more directory submissions for the business as well such as yellow pages and superpages.   The company also has a business Twitter page.  Currently, the company has a marketing firm doing the background graphic and icon for that particular page.  Looking forward to seeing how it looks!  Other than that, not a very busy day aside from having to walk the dog every so often!   Also, one last thing, if I haven’t mentioned it already, we do have a Facebook business page now:  http://facebook.com/DavenportMagicalEntertainmentLlc .  Like our Facebook page when you can!  You will probably have to login first though before you can see it!

Applebees in Macon Was Packed Out Tonight

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Worked Applebee’s in Macon and it was PACKED OUT!  I stayed busy from start to finish and stayed over 30 minutes to help the restaurant out.  Very busy!  Felt tired when I got back tonight.   One of the magic tricks that was performed was where a borrowed spectator’s ring vanished from their own hand and re-appeared tied on my shoelace on my shoe without me ever bending down towards my shoe.  That particular trick went over really well!

I also made a submission for my business to superpages.com.  That was pretty interesting filling everything out.  Getting ideas on directory submissions and search engine optomization.  Well, tonight is going to be a short blog post.  Feeling tired right now!  You guys have an awesome night!

Taking Care of My Dog and Working on the Business

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Well, today was spent mostly walking my dog, giving him a bath, medication prescribed by the vet and using the deshedder and brushing his fur.  Training him to sit right now using I think it’s called Pavolov’s method.  Rewarding him when he sits and use this method to condition him to sit when I tell him to sit.  I also just got my business verified and approved on yahoo.com, so Davenport Magical Entertainment LLC now shows up in the yahoo search engine as a local business and people can write reviews on it.  I just verified with Bing as well and waiting for their review to be complete and still waiting on the verification code from google.  I am going to have to do some manual submissions to some of the major directories such as White Pages and Yelp.

Family has a board game party again this Sunday.  We played Talisman last Sunday and it was a LONG game but we had fun.  My wife May ended up winning the game and beating the rest of us.  Next week we’ll be playing “Betrayal at House on the Hill 2nd Edition” and we are going to be playing for $30 gift certificate prize to Wow Cafe and Wingery in Warner Robins GA (being loyal to my restaurant clients).  Anyway, time for me to end this blog post here.  I hope everybody had a great day!

Great Time at Wow Cafe!

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I love working Wow Cafe! It’s always a happening place on Friday night and the crowd is always awesome!  I had a ball this evening!  I noticed the Facebook business page is getting more likes.  That’s great news!  Glad to see a few more likes coming my way on the business page.  Tomorrow it’s Applebees in Perry!  Looking forward as always to working that gig!  Well, time for me to close the blog post.  Later!

Facebook Business Page Up And Going!

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

We got the Facebook business page up and going!  Man, it’s been a long day though making sure everything was set up as best as possible and in the proper order.  Facebook business page is looking good!  Very happy  and proud of it.  Now, I have to consider other aspects to the business as far as marketing is concerned.

Just to remind folks, I will be at Wow Cafe and Wingery in Warner Robins, GA tomorrow from 8pm-10pm.  I will also be at Applebees in Perry, GA this Saturday from 7pm-9pm.  Looking forward to performing at the restaurants in the next few days!

Played A Game of Talisman Tonight

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Played a game of Talisman tonight with my wife.  We had bought the “Highland” expansion which was an interesting expansion and added a variety to the game.  My wife won the game and beat me!  Ohh well, can’t win em all, but it was fun.

Tomorrow, I will be practicing the “Quarters” trick by Daniel Garcia.  Got the first part down, but now working on the second part.  Not easy, but I’ll eventually get it down with enough work and practice.  I am also looking forward to using my Facebook business page once it is complete.  Applebees has asked about it, so I am anxious to get a full, complete and well done Facebook business page going as soon as possible that way I can start using Applebees to promote my restaurant clients special events where I will be appearing.  Anyway, it’s getting late and it’s time for me to get to get to bed.   Good night!

Fun Time Performing and Life is Grand!

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I am getting better and better with my magic.  The quarter through the glass trick is also getting much better with performance experience!  Very happy.  Ring and string routine with an ending that has the ring on the key chain is awesome!  Plus the rubber band tricks have come a long ways too.  Love it!

Feeling a little tired right now.  My wife is a big fan of the game called “Talisman” which is a board game (again we are big board gamers).  She just bought the “Highland” expansion, so we are going to be playing that particular game this coming up Sunday at my brother in laws.  It looks like it’s going to be a fun and awesome game.  Anyway, life is grand!  I am absolutely happy and couldn’t ask for any better.  I hope everybody else is doing great! Y’all take care!

A Night of Practicing

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Been practicing a magic trick that I have been performing just to keep my skill level up with it.  Plus the more I practice the better I become at doing it.   Also been adding the second part of the magic trick to it as well.  The trick involves taking a quarter and visually penetrating it through the bottom of an empty glass and then doing it a second time in a the opposite direction.  Pretty cool trick and challenging to master.

Also took my dog out for a walk tonight.  Seems we are getting in better shape.  Plan on going for a long early morning walk as well with Brillo (my dog).  Anyway, this post is short and sweet and I hope everybody had a wonderful Monday!

Relaxing Sunday With Family

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I had a nice, slow, relaxing day with family today.  We went over to the brother in laws house and played “Betrayal at House on the Hill 2nd Edition” a few times and had a blast.  It seems I can’t ever win at this game.  My brother in law wins and so does my wife, but I am always on the losing side in this game.  The point is not so much winning as to have fun, which, I had a ball and plenty of fun.  Wife and I also went on a nice little ride in our car, just to get out the house and enjoy the town.  Overall, not much to say about today other than it was a great relaxing day spending time with the family!
