kinda long, i apologize, just my story of getting a restaurant job at Outback(possibly)

well i went to work today, hated it as usual, but this time i brought my ID to work(but left it in my car til the end of the shift)
so i go outside, get my ID and a regular deck of cards, and do the ID routine to several ppl(cuz the first one told just about everyone how crazy it was)
suddenly, i said @#$% it... went up to Chris, the toughest manager ever, and said "let me show u some magic."..... and he said "Sure."
i did the ID routine to him while most of the "hardcore" kitchen crew was around... they all screamed... so i put the deck away and ask "more?"
they said ya, so i pulled out the other deck(tho they thought it was the same deck) and went just started slammin him with BTP effects
2 Card Monte
Ultimate Transpo
Ambitious Card
the whole crew was floored
i jokingly said to my manager "i couldve done this and more to entertain ppl waiting for food and tables all night"
and he replied "if u wouldve done this before your shift, i would have cleaned tables for u so u could have done magic instead"
so i went ahead and told him what i could do for him, and he wants me to go talk to him tomorrow... i also told him i plan on applying at several restaurants for the same job, so i think he is interested(because no other restaurant has or has had a magician)

WISH ME LUCK!!! I WILL UPDATE!!!

sweet, question is, do you have routines?!
I can do many many effects, but I have no idea how to group them together. How much $$$ are you getting and what are ya gonna wear?
Any other advice would be great. :twisted:

i'm not sure on the money/wear thing yet... i'm going to talk to the manager about that today...

as far as routines, i'm workin on some right now...

card magic routine would prolly be 3-4 effects off of BTP(quick and good... 2 card monte, ultimate transpo, ambitious card)

i'm workin on other routines and i am probably gonna make a decent sized order if i get the job confirmation... i have alot of tricks to do too, and i always run routines on friends, but i'm tryin to develop good and practical ones for table hopping...

also, my routines will change weekly if possible... i'll try to throw a percentage of my earnings into new magic each week

EDIT: come to think about it, i read magic grants post again, and i'll probably stick to what i do all along... have maybe a set routine or two, but just be prepared to do any effect i feel comfortable with... and just stick to what appeals to my audience... i always kinds throw routines together on the spot
