Once you find your spot it's pretty simple, just wait for someone that looks like they'll stop for you and say something like, "Hey, check this out", As long as you've got omething that looks interesting with you hey'll stop and watch. Once you start several people will stop and you can just go through your routine.

I usually just gauge the people. I have an interesting little flourish I do with cards where I can shoot them in the air and catch them different ways. I just do that as I gaze around, see who's attention I'm catching. After that I just go up to those whom I see interested in me and I ask them to let me show them something. (Oftentimes they'll just come up themselves). I do other things to get people interested too, but really its all about finding that "window," which I suppose for every magician its different. It just takes time and experience.
