It may be the end of summer this week, but we San Franciscans know it’s just the beginning of the best weather in the City. I was gunning hard to send this early today so I can get a sunset beach walk in, my favorite. Last night was so beautiful with that luminous full moon hanging over the windless and fog-free city. Be sure to go for a stroll, go enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail outside tonight.
I’m going to hope for some beautiful fall weather in October, when I plan to host another weekend of one of my over-the-top garage sales. Mark your calendar for October 9th-10th, if you love vintage clothes and accessories! I will have a couple vintage-loving cohorts joining me, stand by for more details soon!
Last night was the new member induction ceremony for Les Dames d’Escoffier San Francisco, and yours truly is very honored to finally be a dame! What an inspiring group of women in food, beverage, and hospitality who are behind this philanthropic organization (the SF chapter was founded in 1989).
Speaking of fabulous dames, I wanted to be sure you know there’s a new film about Julia Child, Julia, from filmmakers Julie Cohen and Betsy West (the duo behind RBG). It opens in November, but you can see it at the Mill Valley Film Festival October 9th and 13th (in-theater).
In case you’re looking for something new to watch at home, my latest faves have been Fantastic Fungi on Netflix (it’s truly mind-blowing, man) and 1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything docuseries on Apple TV is so immersive (just wait for the Rolling Stones footage and stories during their time at Nellcôte).
One more quick item of note: I’m so thrilled to announce an upcoming sponsored partnership and amazing giveaway with Popmenu, designed to help and support one very lucky Bay Area restaurant. Stay tuned, and get ready to nominate your favorite place that could use a website and marketing upgrade!
Take care, enjoy your evening, and I’ll be back in your inboxes soon! Marcia Gagliardi
An incredible Sunday supper celebrating my dear friend Mr. Anthony’s birthday, with pollo verde tamales wrapped in kale leaves and extraordinary frijoles charros with chorizo and chicharrón! What a dream. ¡Gracias, chef Luis!View tablehopper Newsletter from Tuesday, Sep 21 2021
