Trigg Watson Magician

Dallas, Texas – January 3, 2018 – Checkered Past Winery is excited to host award-winning magician Trigg Watson at the urban pub for Wine and Magic at 7:00 and 9:30 pm on January 27, 2018. Signature wines, pizza, charcuterie, desserts, and more will be available for purchase during the intimate show. Checkered Past Winery owner Sandro DiSanto says, “The first time I ever saw Trigg perform, I was blown away. We love hosting fun and unique events at Checkered Past so I knew he would be perfect for our clientele. It’s rare to even catch Trigg in Dallas since he spends most of the year traveling the world with his show so we are proud to present him to Dallas.”

Watson first fell in love with magic in his native Australia and later honed his craft while living in New Orleans. Watson has called Dallas home ever since attending and graduating from Southern Methodist University. He has since performed on several national television shows and won multiple awards. “I love having the opportunity to perform at Checkered Past Winery in my own city,” says Watson. “I usually perform for large audiences but getting to see the reactions to my illusions up-close in an intimate pub, I live for that.”
