Magicians adopted wands as their default stage tool after deeming yardsticks too bulky and laser pointers too likely to send rabbits into a killing frenzy. Hop along with this Groupon.

Against the red curtain of Rib Trader's stage, Merlin blends comedy with grand illusion while his costumed servers top tables with dinner. A housemade soup du jour warms up appetites before a choice of sauce-slathered ribs or chicken and sides of honey-baked cornbread and baked beans transport stomachs to medieval times. For no extra charge, chefs accommodate vegetarian and diabetic-friendly diets and can upgrade plates with double chicken for protein lovers or amateur poultry collectors. Shows take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. Click here for a schedule of upcoming performances.

Merlin's Magic & Comedy Dinner Theatre

Calling on the alchemic knowledge of ancient mystics, Merlin's Magic & Comedy Dinner Theatre blends gut-busting comedy, jaw-dropping barbecue fare, and mind-boggling magic tricks on the Rib Trader stage. Clothed in medieval garb, Merlin unleashes a flurry of illusions, levitating water glasses and assistants and confounding minds with sleight of hand and recitations of tax manuals. While audience members attempt to make sense of their newly stretched reality, a cadre of costumed servers piles tables high with ribs and chicken—or chicken strips and french fries for wee ones—and oversees edible disappearing acts.
