I'm starting to perform magic more frequently now. I have a Java Moon Cafe really close to me. Do you think it would be good when I turn 14 to apply for a walkaround gig or a stand up show or something? There is a stage at the one by us and I thought it would be really cool.

Depends, can you really perform or do you just do tricks? Working restaurants is more than doing tricks, it is keeping families entertained and the kids quiet so mama (who decides where the family eats) is happy.

Because of your age they might not take you seriously, although i am only 16 but pass as 18 years old because im 6 foot 1. Also as Paddy said you can just perform your favourite trick then walk away, you need to build up a strong routine and make it funny and entertaining for the adults and the children :)

I know that already, I have a table act all set up and ready to go. I might wait though. I'm only 5 feet tall. If I grow by then and actually look 14 then I might go and try it out. I was reccomended by Six Flags great adventure to come back when I was 14 so I'm not sure if the cofee house would be best haha

If you take yourself seriously and respect yourself then others will to. Cary yourself well, demand respect, and don't tolerate anyone who won't respect you. I began performing at restaurants when I was 13 so yes, you can start performing at restaurants.
