8 awesome adventures for the weekend

Good Things Utah

Wondering what to do this weekend? Look no further, we’ve got you covered with two segments and eight ideas total! Check it out!

Tonight, 1/8 and tomorrow, 1/9. Master Magician: Wonder and Wizardry for a New Year with Rhett Guter. They say he brings people’s jaws to the floor, and to head to his website and have a look for yourself. He’ll make you think more than twice about what’s possible with a deck of card, or your own phone. Rhett has been stunning the people of Manhattan for years, and was 12 years old when he performed his first magic trick in middle school. He found his magic mentor shortly after, who began teaching him card manipulations, coin tricks, and sleight of hand with everyday objects. He was introduced to the world of Magic but really, the world of performing arts. Getting up in front of a crowd, captivating them with an illusion that asked them to believe, if only for a moment, that the laws of the universe could possibly be altered. That was the real magic.
