When we're not reporting about the latest news going on in the world of magic, we're trying to get out to as many shows and events as possible. Often, this means we get to hang out with some of the coolest people in the business. Recently, GeniiOnline owner and illusionist Randy Pitchford flew out to Las Vegas to check out Mat Franco's new residency at the LINQ Hotel. During the evening, he rubbed elbows with some of the industry's biggest names and brightest up-and-comers, as you can see in the photo below.
