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).

The notion of two people sleeping in the same bed always inspires romantic visions of love and intimacy. However, most quickly realize that the romance of sleeping together is often quickly replaced by the realities of the act. One partner snores. The other talks in their sleep. One grinds their teeth. The other hogs the […]
