|A new sign greets guests and AMA members to "Houdini's Magic Castle."
The name change was embraced by AMA member Mike Caveney who was overheard to say, "It's about time Houdini got some recognition." The only hold-out was member Patrick Culliton who felt a more accurate name would have been "The Houdini-Hardeen Magic Castle."
Additionally, the Castle dress code will be amended to allow straitjackets.
The new name is effective as of today, April 1st.
