Brought to you by the producers of San Francisco’s long running (and always sold out) Absolute Magic, Magic at the Rex is an evening of mystery, wonderment and laughs. In an intimate nightclub setting at the classic Hotel Rex, you will be up close and personal with every flick of the wrist and wave of a hand of Adam Sachs and Sebastian Boswell III.
Sebastian Boswell III is a most remarkable man who does fantastic things. As Mr. Boswell would modestly admit ,words cannot do justice to his performance of unusual feats he has learned in his travels over the world; suffice to say that you will be riveted.
Close-up Magician Adam Sachs is as nimble with his fingers as he is with his wit. Writing in the New York Times, William Safire described Adam as a "wise guy, wiseacre." Adam is sophisticated and refined, but he sheds all that before the shows begin.
Magic at the Rex will occasionally include a guest magician.
But don't take it from us, here's how the San Francisco Chronicle described the earlier show, Absolute Magic:
Forget the pyrotechnics, fog machines and cheesy background music - this isn't Caesars Palace. Absolute Magic focuses on the interactive and communal aspects of a magic show rather than the spectacle. Featured are local magicians RJ Owens - whose avuncular charm and offbeat brand of comedy magic will have you somewhere between smirking and outright chortling (depending on your sheepishness) - and Adam Sachs, with his mystifying sleight of hand, which may require reminders to close your mouth.
Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, and there is a two drink minimum.
Parking is available at nearby public parking garages including the Sutter/Stockton Garage. Please note that seating will begin at 7:30 PM. You may also meet and relax in the classic bar next to the salon for pre-show drinks.
Did we mention that Adam and Sebastian sometimes wander to the Rex’s bar after the show and mingle over drinks for discussion and more close up performances for the guests . In other words, you may ask them questions they won’t answer, like “how did he do that?” and questions they will answer, like “why do you do that?”

Moscone Center is the largest convention and exhibition complex in San Francisco, California. It comprises three main halls: Two underground halls underneath Yerba Buena Gardens, known as Moscone North and Moscone South, and a three-level Moscone West exhibition hall across 4th Street. It was initially built in 1981 by architects Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum as one single hall, Moscone South, and named after San Francisco former mayor George Moscone, who was assassinated in November 1978.BackgroundThe South of Market Area where Moscone Center was built was claimed by the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, and a protracted battle was fought by the displaced low-income residents during the 1960s and 1970s.Although the Center is named after the murdered mayor, Moscone opposed the development of the area when he served on the SF Board of Supervisors in the 1960s because he felt it would displace elderly and poor residents of the area. As mayor, Moscone convened a special committee of proponents and opponents of a convention center. Hearings were held throughout SF seeking citizen input. A compromise was reached which was supported by Moscone. He put the matter on the ballot and it passed overwhelmingly.Labor organizations supported the construction of the Center, and were granted full labor jurisdiction. All labor in the Convention Center is performed by I.A.T.S.E. Local 16 Stagehands, Sign and Display Workers Local #510, Brotherhood of Teamsters local #65, IBEW Local #6, Security I.A.T.S.E.

San Francisco City Hall is the seat of government for the City and County of San Francisco, California. Re-opened in 1915 in its open space area in the city's Civic Center, it is a Beaux-Arts monument to the City Beautiful movement that epitomized the high-minded American Renaissance of the 1880s to 1917. The structure's dome is taller than that of the United States Capitol by 42 feet. The present building replaced an earlier City Hall that was destroyed during the 1906 earthquake, which was two blocks from the present one. It was bounded by Larkin Street, McAllister Street, and City Hall Avenue (a street, now built over, which ran from the corner of Grove and Larkin to the corner of McAllister and Leavenworth), largely where the current Public Library and U.N. Plaza stand today.The principal architect was Arthur Brown, Jr., of Bakewell & Brown, whose attention to the finishing details extended to the doorknobs and the typeface to be used in signage. Brown's blueprints of the building are preserved at the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley. Brown also designed the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House, Veterans Building, Temple Emanuel, Coit Tower and the Federal office building at 50 United Nations Plaza.
