The San Francisco Magic Parlor theatre has been home to Walt Anthony's “Magical Tales of San Francisco” for the last two years and has become a popular pastime in the city's fashionable Union Square.

And, this Valentine's Day, Conjurer & Teller-of Tales Walt Anthony will shower couples with a special box of chocolates and a rose for the ladies as well as a magical love potion spell that sure to get things "hot."

During the February 14 performance, as with any night at the San Francisco Magic Parlor, guests will be entertained by San Francisco’s most revered and feared eccentrics along with some of the city's quirky history. Each of Walt's vignettes offers captivating tales entwined with astonishing magic.

Nestled within the gracious 100 year old Chancellor Hotel, time stands still in the intimate Parlor Theatre where the whimsical ambiance suggests a brief moment in history when wealthy Europeans dined at Maxim’s and frolicked at Moulin Rouge.
