Renowned Mathemagician Colm Mulcahy’s original effects with a deck of cards will delight and astound. Refreshments and a reception afterward to celebrate Mulcahy's new book, "Mathematical Card Magic: Fifty-Two New Effects".
For more information on the lecture: http://aumathstat.org/magic/ . The lecture is sponsored by the American University Department of Mathematics and Statistics
and the Mathematical Association of America.

I enjoyed the presentation by Prof. Mulcahy at AU and talked to him briefly about his other upcoming talks in the DC area. His schedule is listed on his web page, www.cardcolm.org, and includes:
George Washington Univ, 5pm, Tue, 12 Nov 2013
(Lecture on Martin Gardner)
Virginia Commonwealth Univ, VA, 2:30pm, Fri, 22 Nov 2013
(talk on mathemagic with a deck of cards)
Trinity, Washington, DC, 3pm, Tue, 3 Dec 2013
National Capital Area Skeptics, 1:30pm, Sat, 14 Dec 2013
(Lecture on Martin Gardner the skeptic).
If anybody wants to add any of these to the meetup calendar, it's OK with Prof. Mulcahy. And/or some people may just want to attend anyway.

Do I need to register for this?

I don't think so; the web page at http://aumathstat.org... doesn't mention registration, and this isn't an MAA event.

Help support your Meetup
Meet other local Math Buffs of all ability levels. Discuss all forms of math, including pure mathematics. Fun to the nth degree for everyone who likes to solve for X!
Some of the activities in this meetup are:
* Monthly MathJams: meet at a restaurant to talk about mathematics with other people.
* Book clubs: read a math-oriented popular-level book and then discuss it.
* Lectures: attend talks at the Mathematical Association of America. (We're not affiliated with the MAA, but usually add their public lectures to our calendar.)
We're also working on our own occasional series of informal talks.
