Fleet Week Parties: Off the Pier and Sky-High Party at the Mandarin Oriental


Yup, that’s quite a view from the SkyDeck at the Mandarin Oriental. Photo courtesy of Mandarin Oriental.

The Blue Angels are coming this weekend! And the sailors! Fleet Week is kind of the best. Find yourself a good viewing post, because it’s going to be awesome, especially if this heat keeps up. Here are a couple of places where you can get a bite, a drink, and a view of the action.

~OFF THE GRID~ will be doing a special Off the Pier event this whole weekend. They’ve extended the hours of their usual Friday Fort Mason food truck assembly to 12pm-10pm. Then, on Saturday October 6th, they’ll be at the Fort Mason Center from 11am-4pm, with 14 different food trucks and outdoor bars where you can grab a glass of wine, a beer, or even a cocktail while you watch the Angel action. Then, on Sunday October 7th, catch the inaugural Off the Grid Picnic in the Presidio from 11am-4pm, with more food trucks, drinks, and outdoor fun.

If you’d rather watch the show from above rather than below, ~BRASSERIE S&P~ in the Mandarin Oriental is hosting a Sky-High Party from the hotel’s 40th floor SkyDeck. How glam is that? Bar director Priscilla Young has crafted special cocktails using Blue Angel Vodka, and chef Adam Mali has created some small bites for the event. The event is 2pm-4pm, $40, and reservations can be made by email or calling 415-276-9724.
