For many of us, the highlights of summer include the new Batman movie, frequent visits to the ice-cream truck and riding your bike to work to save gas money. To add a bit of mystique to the routine, head for the Airport Hilton Hotel (10330 Natural Bridge Road) for the 52nd annual Midwest Magic Jubilee
. Three gala shows take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (August 7 through 9), each featuring breathtaking magic by dozens of magicians, including native St. Louisan Jonathan Levit (host of VH1's CelebraCadabra
), Mark Mason from the UK and Jay Scott Berry (pictured), producer of Scotland's The Palace of Magic festival. General admission tickets for these shows are $8 to $15, and VIP seating is $20. And don't miss Steve Daly — America's only "comic, female-impersonator magician" — at 10:30 p.m. Friday (tickets are $10). To order tickets or for more information, visit www.mmjubilee.com
or call 314-532-4021.
