The first rule of the Magic Castle is: Do not talk about the Magic Castle

Yeah, I went for the clam.

Tonight, because we know people who know people who know people, Jul and I are headed to the ultra-exclusive Magic Castle in Hollywood with some friends. How exclusive? Check out their page of rules for guests to get in:

Before you come to the Magic Castle, we would like you to know about our club rules:

  • The Magic Castle is a private club. You must be a member or have a guest card from a member. You must have your guest card with you when you arrive at the Magic Castle!
  • Dress Code is STRICTLY ENFORCED and NO ONE UNDER 21 is admitted. Photo ID is required.

  • NO ONE UNDER 21 will be admitted to the club at any time except for Sunday Brunch.

  • Please be sure that every member of your party has a legal picture ID (drivers license or State issued ID card) with them.

The Magic Castle has a strict dress code for evening guests:

Men
  • Men must be in coat and tie (standard or bow tie)
  • Exceptions to the "tie rule" are: turtlenecks, bolo ties, ascots, jeweled collars, ruffled collars and banded collars.
  • Military Dress, ethnic and/or religious attire will also be allowed.
  • No zippered jackets, outdoor jackets, polo shirts, t-shirts, denim (or colored denim), shorts, sandals, flip flops, sneakers or sneaker-like shoes are allowed.
  • Leather jackets (with buttons) and leather pants are allowed.
  • No casual attire will be allowed. Think business attire!

Women

  • Women must be in a dress, cocktail dress, elegant skirt & blouse combination, pant suit with a matching jacket (think business suit), or evening pant suit ensemble.
  • Military Dress, ethnic and/or religious attire will also be allowed.
  • No outdoor or zippered jackets, polo shirts, denim (or colored denim), Capri pants, shorts, skorts, flip flops, sneakers or sneaker-like shoes are allowed.
  • No casual or inappropriate attire will be allowed. Think elegant attire!

Dresscode for Friday Lunch, Saturday & Sunday Brunch:

Men, Women & Children

  • Think "Smart Casual"!
  • No shorts, tank tops, sandals, or flip flops are allowed.
  • No inappropriate attire will be allowed.

If you have any questions about the dress code, please call the Castle before you make your visit. Guests who do not meet the dress code or minimum age requirement will not be admitted to the club.

Of course, the fact that we're getting in should tell you that it's not that exclusive, but that post isn't nearly as interesting.
