Artist and 111 Minna bartender Brian Dawson holds up a new painting with buddy Frank Chu.
To mark the achievement, Google is honoring Houdini with a doodle on top of its page.
Strangely enough San Francisco is not honoring its own street magician, who wows and confuses the masses at the same time with his other worldly signs and ability to show up everywhere and anywhere.
Chu turned 51 Thursday. Happy birthday Frank.
