I do magic rarely, but whenever I do it don't charge a thing, usually use it as an ice breaker, fun, laughs or personal enjoyment :lol:

Also say that you got a better deal at another restaurant but enjoy this one , but the money is better. If you do a good job then he will definately raise the pay. A small bluff will easily be the difference between a small pay and a large pay.

For me I don't Work restaurants right now, but do perform for people otherwise. My rates depend on how many people, but are normally $100 and hour for a close-up show depending on how many peopel are there. About the same for a kids show. Then for corperate events I charge about $300 like said above. I have only done one corperate event, but am hoping for more.

It all depends on who you are working for...

Are you planning on approaching the local Denny's in Preston, Idaho? Or are you planning on going to a classy joint in your downtown district?
