I am about to TRY to get my first job in table-hopping, I am going to stick with card routines, tell me what you think:

:arrow: Perfecto (Stealing Pips)
:arrow: Here than There (BTP)
:arrow: Do as I do (ID)
:arrow: Thought force (Stealing Pips)
:arrow: predicto (my original, an amazing mentalist effect)

Critiscism is welcome...

I've heard people get bored of all card tricks!
Some of my NUMBER 1 Non-card tricks include

An Xpert Coin Bend
Hundy 500
Crazy Mans Handcuffs
Pinnacle
Simple Sponge Ball Routine
Quarter Bite
Raven Vanish
Pyro Perception
Stealth Pen/Re-Cap
Psychokinetic Silverware
Impromptu Nightshades

The list goes on and on!
Routining is the HARDEST thing to do w/ effects!
I still haven't found my happy routine, but I'm trying.

I read in Pace's books that some people can just walk around a restaurant with a deck of cards and do a great job, but it's all about the skills and preferences of the magician. He suggests variety, but don't ever do anything your not comfortable with for the sake of variety.

Well you can stick to cards, but make sure you know a good amount of effects, and can perform them well. The only thing that might be bad about cards only would be kids, who would love cards if they could only understand the routines. If the customers of a restaurant are mostly older, you may have a good shot. Otherwise, at least score some instant reset gimmicks for the kids. It wouldn't hurt to learn a sponge ball routine either(it's easy, trust me).

One comment I have received a few times- and only from laypersons (i.e. "the audience") is that sometimes card routines are hard to follow. And I am not saying that this was in response to my card work (but I am not saying it wasn't..."
I like Paul Harris-type card work, have for years. Especially where cards were "objects", rather than "cards". This seems to avoid the flurry/confusion problem.
I prefer coin work- but sometimes I get the same response to coin work.....
