"Nothing Up My Sleeve!"
Tucked away in a little row of shops off the Riviera lobby is the Las Vegas Magic Shop, which proudly proclaims itself "Nevada's Oldest Magic Shop." Here you can find everything from classics like the Chinese Linking Rings to the complete Criss Angel Magic Kit. In fact there's an entire display case dedicated to local favorite son Angel, featuring videos of his Mindfreak show and more magic. Since magic tricks have always been pitched to kids and adolescent boys, there's also (as was inevitable in magic catalogs when I was a boy, anyway) a generous selection of novelties and practical jokes. If you want a pair of oversized boxer shorts that make it look like your big old butt cheeks are poking out and mooning your friends, they have you covered.
