The chance to meet a person who has influenced magic for generations!
Chris Moore created one of the first magical theme restaurants in America! The
“Magic Moment Restaurant” on Siesta Key in Sarasota, FL. Opened in early 1977.

To magicians, magic was infamous in bars all over the country, Chicago, Atlanta,
Buffalo and others. Of course, the “Magic Castle”, however, was a private club.

Chris’ love for magic started at age seven but after getting out of the Navy, he
pursued a management restaurant career.

A surprise visit from corporate, while managing the Stagg & Hound in Madison,
WI sparked the concept. Corporate wanted to know why his store was doing
more business on Tuesday, than the rest of the chain was doing on Saturday.

Chris calmly said: “step into the lounge”. Originally performing magic himself,
he had expanded to local magicians. Guests were coming in for dinner, then
heading straight to the lounge for magic entertainment and a nightcap.

Chris’ mind moved quickly after the visit and “The Magic Moment Restaurant”
was created! It was highly successful with a secret entrance, a menu magically
produced on a silk, and a magician performing close-up at your table during
dessert. The restaurant was even franchised in England.

In 1983, Chris sold his shares in the restaurant and moved to Indianapolis, IN
where he opened “Illusions Restaurant” in Carmel, IN. Some of the lounge
performers were: Eugene Burger, Mike Webber, Jonny “Ace” Palmer, Jamy
Ian Swiss and many more along with the head table hopper, Michael Close!

During this period, Chris has developed many close-up ideas and routines
of which 98% are original with only 2% stolen! He will explain these to you
and offer to pay the shipping on any purchased from his website for a limited
time after the lecture.
