Rose Pistola Cooks for North Beach


Honorary Chair Francis Ford Coppola and hosts Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Jeannette Etheredge announce the next ~ROSE PISTOLA COOKS FOR NORTH BEACH~. Here’s more from the announcement: “One of San Francisco’s most festive and soulful neighborhood parties takes place Sunday evening, April 11th in the heart of North Beach. Every year for the past nine years, people have gathered in the basement of Sts. Peter and Paul church for a bountiful family-style dinner, served at long tables, and accompanied by wines by Francis Coppola Wines. Past events have included poetry readings by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, orchestration of the cooks by Francis Ford Coppola, film screenings, dancing, and surprises of every sort.”

“This year, Rose Pistola, the venerable restaurant named after one of North Beach’s most beloved barkeeps and cooks, will cook a dinner in the spirit of its namesake. The evening benefits North Beach Citizens, A Neighborhood Approach To Homelessness, founded by Francis Ford Coppola.”
