Saturday some magic was made at Strange Brew for the Youth Sailing Club. I didn’t even know Belize had a magician and I was pleasantly surprised with how good he was. It wasn’t David Copperfield in Vegas flashy but it was way way better than coins and card tricks (which is all I was really expecting, to be perfectly honest). Ozzy the Clown, I found him on Facebook, is the real deal- a magician that pulls live doves out of hats! Here’s a quick recap on the fun at Strange Brew on Saturday.
The sailing club was treated to a free lunch and magic show in the afternoon (Thank you Strange Brew!). I didn’t get over there to take any pictures because I was sweating buckets, cleaning rooms, and doing endless loads of laundry at our guesthouse… ah, the life of a little hotelier- it’s not all sunbathing and rum punch, people! Mitch gave us his version of events though: he gave his burger to Coach Glenn but ate his fries and the Magician turned a plate of fire in to a bird then turned the bird in to a rabbit. WOW! I was fully committed to attending the evening show and buying some raffle tickets to support the club’s fundraising initiatives to buy another Lazer boat.
As Mitch promised, the show was wonderful! Fire, birds, rabbits… magic! What a wonderful evening of unusual entertainment. I even won one of the raffles- a pedicure gift certificate. I’m going to re-gift it to my favorite little sailor who never wears shoes and needs a pedi pretty badly.
