That was a great write up by Rick, I learned a few things and also disagree with a few things he has to say. The one major thing I disagree with is where he says not to do card magic in restaurant work. I understand not to do alot
of card magic because you will remind them of one of their uncles that does card magic. But if you do Slither on them for the 1st trick their mouth drops to the floor and right then they know you are the real deal.
As far as asking for tips I also understand how alot of magicans feel not to ask for tips if you are being paid big from the owners. But also if you ask less from the owners with the agreement that you work on tips the owner will see that you will work harder so that you make more money by getting tips. At outback steakhouse the owner is so impressed when my tips jar is full because he knows that I worked hard that night to make the tips. Understand what im saying? Anyways that was a great write up and im thankful you posted that for me to read.
If you have any other articles that help with restaurant work please post I would love to read them so that I can better my routine at tables.
