Houdini 100th Anniversary in November. Pre-party at Dave & Busters, after party at Ten Penny.
On the afternoon of November 6, 1916 Harry Houdini performed his world famous upside down straight jacket escape high above the streets of Pittsburgh while thousands watched in awe. Harry was in town to perform a run of shows at the New Davis Theater. Before his first performance, he wanted to make the cover of all the next morning papers.

Sunday, November 6th, 2016 is a date that I have been dreaming about for a very long time. I am inviting you to join me as I attempt to bridge Pittsburgh past and present and perform the very dangerous upside-down straight jacket escape high above the streets of Pittsburgh.
On November 6th, 1916, Harry Houdini performed this very dangerous stunt himself at the corner of Liberty Avenue & Wood Street in downtown Pittsburgh and now 100 years to the day I plan to recreate it at the very same location!
