I'm officially bored, and I've never made up a routine before so I'm gonna try to make up a few for a restaurant.

I think I would always start off with a Sponge Ball Routine, I like the one in the Demo Video, so I'll use that one. However I'll get the spectator involved with some multiplying balls in hand.
Then I'll branch off into 1 of these different routines

The Monte Routine
To start it off I would do a simple Las Vegas Coin Vanish by Greg Wilson, I hope this'll get their attention.
2 Card Monte
Color Monte
Ultimate 3 Card Monte

Jumping Cards Routine
All of these have to do with cards jumping and moving all over the place.
Start with simple Snowshoe Cut with their card jumping through the air into a pair.
Wave the Aces/Pair(e-team)- Get the card to jump up into the pair
Here and There(e-team)- You guys know this trick, first I'll get the card to jump to the top, then through hands.
Biddle Trick(e-team)- I really love this trick, everyone should learn it. I'll tell them to squeeze the cards and their card will jump to the middle of the deck.
Ambitious Card- Since this one's long I'll have to cut out 1 of the previous effects.

Money Routine
Questionable Trick by Greg Wilson- It happens in their hands and is a cool effect.
Quarter in sugar
Quarter Bite
TT Bill Switch
Pen through Dollar
(Maybe Improv Nightshades)

Restaurant Stuff Routine
Stirring Silver- Jay Sankey, A ring goes on and off the wide end of a spoon.
Ring Fright
Crazy Man's Handcuffs (with a ring)
TT Sugar To Sugar Cube
Quarter To Sugar
Hungry? Why Wait? Quarter Bite

Mentalism Routine
Invisible Deck
Twisted Sisters
Pyro Perception
DB Visual Riffle Force- I'm working on this one, anyone do this regularly? PM me.

Misc. Effects
I think these are just things that don't fit anywhere, however I'm told are restaurant worthy.
Recapped Revisited
Vanishing Silk
Short Distance Spinner Effect
Hummer Card
IT Effects

Well there ya go. I know I'm gonna get a lot of, "You can't do that" :roll: "You aren't ready" "You don't have enough experience" :roll: "Your Routines don't make sense", but I'm just seeing if these would be alright if I had gotten the practice needed.
If you guys don't know the effects of some of these, just ask. I picked lots of popular ones that seemed do-able. I hope to pick up AOA vol. 1 so I can learn those nightshades and some other card effects. I've gots lots of the instant downloads, but most of those are too long or setup. I also have a raven, which would be killer for my coin routine. Also I might buy a die-cipher II or something mentalism related.
Thanks for reading!
Suggestions for any tricks missed or tricks out of place would be greatly appreciated.

You got a great setup, the only downfall I saw, was that there too long. You cant do these if they're waiting for their food(If its those kinda restaurants then maybe yes). Make em a little shorter. Or you can wait till there done then go into your routine. Oh if you want tips show them a trick that they can keep a souvenir, Like paperclipped.

I don't know if I would start with a card trick everyone has an uncle bill that does card tricks. (and most of the time he does not do them well) Prove your worth first then break ou a card trick. Just my two cents, Mick
