Bar Joke of the Day
Against the Lawyers
Bar Joke: A man stomps into a bar, obviously angry. He growls at the bartender, "Gimme a beer", takes a slug, and shouts out, "All lawyers are assholes!" A guy at the other end of the bar retorts, "You take that back!" The angry man snarls, "Why? Are you a lawyer?" The guy replies, "No, I'm an asshole!"

Bar Bet of the Day
Bet Category: Snifter control
Bet Supplies Needed Bar Prop Bet
The Bet: * Empty Brandy snifter or wine glass * Olive or bottle cap or cork * Glass or ashtray or any container to place the Olive or bottle cap into.
Who can get the bottle cap into the cup using the snifter alone. They will try scooping it, flipping it, using the stem or base. They will fail.

The Catch: With a little wrist action, you can begin to swirl the cap or olive around then carry the swirling cap to the cup and drop it in.

1. Make a friendly wager that whoever can move the olive into the cup using only the snifter wins a drink from the other person.
2. Let the other person go first.
3. After they fail, Turn the snifter upside down and begin to pick up the olive by swirling it around the inside of the snifter.
4. Drop the olive into the cup.
5. You win…

Drinking Game of the Day
Ring of Fire
Type of Drinking Game: Card Game
Supplies Needed: Deck of Cards
# Players: 4+
Buzz Factor: Drunk

The game begins with a deck of cards face down in a circle formation basically layed out in a ring(flared in a circle). Clockwise around the ring one player at a time takes their turn flipping a card face up and places in the middle of the ring. All cards 2 - Ace represent a different game so it's kind of like 13 games in 1.

When a player turns a.....
2- MAKE A RULE (this rule is carried out until the end of the

3- PROPOSE A TOAST (the card turner proposes a toast to whatever he/she wants. All players must consume some drink after the toast as a sign of respect)

4- 4 FINGERS (whoever turns this card has the power to delegate up to 4 fingers of drink to ANY player. They may give them all to one player or divide them up to a maximum of 4 players. 4 fingers is the amount of drink if you hold 4 fingers from the pinky to the pointer finger next to a drink.)

5- KING OF THE RING (The king of the ring has the power to make anyone drink whatever he/she likes whenever he/she wants until a new king is elected)

6- LADIES DRINK (all female players consume 2 fingers of drink)

7- CATEGORIES (the card turner selects a category e.g brands of clothing, golfers names, football teams, planets etc and one at a time players give an answer until either someone can't think of one or their answer isn't correct. They then drink a minimum fine of 2 fingers. 2 fingers is amount of drink as high as 2 fingers.)

8- GENTS DRINK (all male players consume 2 fingers of drink. 2 fingers is amount of drink as high as 2 fingers.)

9- BUSTA RHYME (the card turner says a word and players must give a word that rhymes with the original e.g lick, sick, prick, kick etc until either someone can't think of one or their answer isn't correct. They then consume minimum fine of 2 fingers. 2 fingers is amount of drink as high as 2 fingers.)

10- SNAP (the last person to put their hand on top of the upturned 10 card must drink the minimum fine of 2 fingers)

Jack- THUMBMASTER (thumbmaster can place his thumb on the edge of the table whenever they like and the last person to do so consumes minimum fine of 2 fingers)

Queen- QUESTION MASTER (Question Master can ask people questions whenever they like and if any other player answers a question they must consume minimum fine of 2 fingers)

King- EYE MASTER (the Eye Master tries to catch the eye of any other player. A player caught looking directly into the eye of the eye master must consume a minimum fine of 2 fingers)

Ace- 21s (a game of 21s proceeds starting with the card turner)
After a player turns a card, the next person in the ring turns their card and on and on.
Each person takes turn taking a card until someone makes a stack that equals 21.
If you bust(go above 21) you drink.
If someone gets 21, everyone else drinks.
21's Number Values---
2 to 10 = the # 2 up to 10
J,Q,K = 10
A = 1 or 11 your choice
Joker is wild card
The 'power cards' are 5, Jack, Queen, King.
They remain with the player who turned them until the next time the card is turned. So a player who turns a Queen will be Question Master until the next time a Queen is turned.

Rule Challenges: If at any point during the game a disagreement occurs between players (e.g A word kind of rhymes in BUSTA RHYME or who was the last person to put their thumb down during THUMBMASTER) a 'Council' will decide the outcome. Anyone can call Council at any time and a majority vote (shown by placing a clenched fist in the middle of the table) is final. All players at the table are involved in the council.

The standard minimum drinking fine is 2 fingers but can be adapted to the drink involved e.g. a fine of 4 fingers for lager may be adapted to only 2 fingers for wine or 1 finger for straight liquor.

Cheat Sheet



5- KING OF THE RING- make anyone drink at anytime til new king reigns.


7- CATEGORIES- name things in the same category until someone can't name something.


9- BUSTA RHYME- words that rhyme until someone can't rhyme.

10- SNAP - Last hand on card

Jack- THUMBMASTER - thumb at edge of table

Queen- QUESTION MASTER- asks a question at anytime if someone answers they drink. Until new question master reigns.

King- EYE MASTER- If eye contact is returned the person making the eye contact drinks until new question master reigns.

Ace- 21s- play 21 until someone gets 21

The 'power cards' are 5, Jack, Queen, King. They remain with the player who turned them until the next time the card is turned.

Magic Trick of the Day
Pick a Card, Any Card…

Magic Category: Card Magic Trick

Supplies Needed: Deck of cards

Summary: Someone picks a card out of the deck, remembers it, shows everyone accect you, them returns it to the deck. The deck is mixed. Amazingly, you find the card.

Secret: Remember another card in the deck which magicians call the Key Card or the Locator Card and place your spectator’s Chosen Card next to it. In order to find the spectator’s Chosen Card you must know where the Key/Locator Card you memorized is.

Set up: Ask a person to pick any card and show everyone accept you. Tell them you can sense which card it is after they cut the deck a couple times.

Step1: Choose a card to memorize and put it at the bottom of the deck. (Bottom of the deck is the top card if all the cards were faced up and bottom card if all the cards are face down) We will use the King of hearts as an example.
Step2: Ask your spectator to select a card. Let’s say they choose the 2 of spades. Turn around so you don’t see the card they chose.
Step3: Have them show anyone else that is around, so that they can’t try to say they chose another card.
Step4: Cut the deck in half then have the spectator return the card they chose to the top of the deck. Complete the cut by placing your bottom card (the King of hearts) on top of the spectators chosen card.
Step5: The King of hearts or whatever your Key Card is will now be on top of the 2 of spades(Spectators Chosen Card). You may now have the spectator cut the deck a few times. Your memorized card will remain next to the spectator’s card. Important: Don't shuffle the deck because the Key Card and Chosen Card might get seperated. Important: Don't make a big deal about cutting the deck of cards or mention mixing the cards because he spectator may want to shuffle them. Just say 'Cut the deck a few times'.
Step6: Now spread or fan the cards flat on a table or in your hands.
Step7: Find your memorized card, the King of hearts. The card UNDERNEITH it will be the spectator’s card, the 2 of spades. Ask the spectator if they see their card - Look away and tell the spectator you are looking away because you don't want to see what they are looking at.
Step8: Cut the spectator’s card to the top of the deck. Ask them the name of the card they chose. Turn over the top card and there it is… Tip and Important Lesson: A famous twentieth-century magic inventor and author, J.G. Thompson Jr., once said that if you know 100 ways to find a card and only one way to reveal it, your spectator, audience and friends will think you only know one card trick. But if you only know one way to find a card and 100 ways to reveal it, it looks as if you know 100 card tricks. The Revelation: This is the way a magician announces, reveals or displays the chosen cards identity. We at eMagicNow.com have the simple Pick-A-Card trick paired with a few fun and interesting revelations (ways to reveal it). To learn more about card magic tricks buy an interesting book like Street Magic By Tom Ogden or check out your local magic store.
