I've been working as the Old Orleans house magician for over 18 months now and it is always a pleasure to entertain the customers. On a Tuesday evening or Saturday lunchtime you can find me performing magic round the tables while people are waiting for their food or relaxing with a drink by the bar. The staff always make me feel welcome and like one of the team, which helps contribute to the great friendly atmosphere. It was even more special than usual this Tuesday. It was my birthday but, as it fell on a Tuesday, I was working in the restaurant rather than out celebrating. But the staff weren't going to let this go unnoticed and decided to put on a special presentation half way through my stint. A group of them appeared with a huge piece of chocolate cake with sparklers in it and a megaphone! "Old Orleans - we have a special birthday in the house - it's our house magician Mike!!!" and then straight into a rousing chorus of "Happy Birthday". I was very touched and the cake tasted lovely. Big thanks to everyone at Old Orleans - what a great bunch of guys and gals!
