Wouldn’t it be great to learn how to hypnotize your loved ones into taking out the trash on time or learn how to mind-control your boss into giving you a raise? If you want to discover more about hypnotism, mindreading, and sixth-sensibility, take in Brian Imbus’ Miracles of the Mind shows this weekend. Imbus acknowledges some of his onstage antics are real and some are just illusion (or delusion), but either way, it’s fun to watch fellow audience members getting called up on the stage and behaving like donkeys. On Friday, Jan. 1, Imbus rings in the new year with a 7 p.m. performance focusing on hypnotism, and at 9 p.m. that night he does his mind-reading show, both at the Blue Tower Lounge, Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino, 30 Buffalo Thunder Trail (455-5555), 15 miles north of Santa Fe, off U.S. 84/285 in Pojoaque. He goes into hypnotism high jinks again at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 2, at the Cities of Gold Casino (455-3313), 10-A Cities of Gold Road, off U.S. 84/285 in Pojoaque. Tickets are $10 at the door at both venues.
