Beyond Brookledge is a three-day entertainment extravaganza of music, magic, and performance. I went last year with my daughter Jane and we both loved it (see photos below). Part of the fun is that the performers are also attendees, and everyone mingled at meals and other times. It's hard to describe how special and fun this event was.
This year, Beyond Brookledge is taking place May 29-31 once again at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa, Riverside, California. A ticket includes 2 nights hotel accommodation, scheduled meals, ‘round-the-clock entertainment and social activities with renowned magicians, musicians and comedy performers. I can't recommend it highly enough. I plan to go again this year, and Jason will be there too.
(I had such a fantastic time at Beyond Brookledge that I asked the co-producer, Bob Self, to partner with us on our upcoming Weekend of Wonder).

There are few intellectual exercises better than a good game of chess against a capable opponent, which is why a lot of old hands at the gameplay it online. But there’s still nothing like the tactile thrill of moving a knight into checkmate. (Or sweeping the pieces off dramatically when you lose.) That’s why we’re […]
Got a real music junkie on your list this year? It’s a good bet that they already have a solid pair of earbuds, but probably nothing quite like these Seeds Earphones. Here’s the thing: Wireless earbuds are all the rage right now, and there are a lot of good reasons for that. But for true […]
