If you find yourself in the San Diego area in early November and have a thing for magic, puzzles, cards, Chris Ramsay, or free food, definitely head to Art of Play‘s open house. Here’s the description from their Facebook page:
Join us this fall as we open the doors to our secret warehouse in San Diego, CA. Guests are invited to browse our collection of designer playing cards, games, puzzles, and unique items that you will not find anywhere else.
Mingle with magicians, cardists, puzzle masters and playing card collectors. Enjoy complimentary food and beer on tap. Play a game of Giant Janga or try and solve one of our many puzzles. Shop our entire catalogue or browse dozens of out of print exclusives in our annual warehouse sale.
For those not familiar with Art of Play, they sell “luxurious playing cards to ingenious puzzles and stimulating amusements— each beautiful item in our collection holds a whisper of mystery, brimming with potential for surprise and delight.” The open house is a kid-friendly event, and a good opportunity to browse their wares in person. (And if you find any of the 2015 Virtuosos, hit me up, ok?)
