I'm moving to an out of the way place. I still within driving distance of two city-like areas. Both are areas I'm sorta close to have a mall with a bunch of restaurants scattered around them. Paddy, I don't see how where I'm moving to makes a difference. I know that the restaurants haven't had a magician before.
I really love the specific information you gave. Think you might be able to be a Democrat running for office. You just typed all that and said nothing.
If you are going to be in Los Angeles the answer will be one thing, if you are going to A--hole Air Force Base in Podunk Alaska, it will definatly be different. Malls are private property and most will NOT allow you to be in the food court. Ruby Tuesday's in a mall here in Cincinnati hired me for a Xmas promotion, and they had to get Mall permission in order to allow me in. I had to show the mall my insurance policy and get a "Certificate of Insurance" nameing the mall as a "co-insured" before they let me. Maybe that is why they haven't had a magi. Get you liability insurance either through SAM, IBM, or Fellerman's then you amy get into a mall, but not before.
