The City Club of San Francisco’s winemaker dinner series is off to a stellar start in 2015 and last Friday’s dinner with Silver Oak and Twomey Cellars was off-the-charts amazing!
A sold out crowd enjoyed a lively conversation with winemaker Nate Weis, as Executive Chef Michael Munoz worked behind the scenes to produce exceptional cuisine, perfectly paired with the award-winning array of wines.
Check out that menu and those wines – WOW! And we have these two talents to thank!
Members and guest continue to rave about the event! Our 2015 winemaker dinner series started off with MacPhail, followed by Silver Oak and Twomey Cellars, and looking ahead to Belle Pente, Martin Ray, and Frog’s Leap to round out the year.

On March 11th, City Club members & friends had a wonderful experience on the soldout North Beach walking tour led by Member Christopher Wiseman.
Fifteen participants met at The Saloon, the oldest bar in San Francisco for an enjoyable beverage. After introductions and an overview of North Beach, a majority of guests enjoyed a Cioccolata Fantasia from Caffe Trieste. Delizioso!
As the tour continued, Christopher continued to share North Beach stories and fun facts until they arrived at Little Vine, a charming wine and cheese purveyor for a special tasting. Next, everyone enjoyed seeing Coit Tower and Washington Square Park, learning about the many signature dishes at various restaurants along the way.
A stop at Cornology was next where everyone enjoyed trying various artisanal popcorn. To end the tour, everyone enjoyed wine and pizza at Il Casaro Pizzeria and Mozzarella Bar, a fabulous Italian restaurant.
Who knew exploring our own backyard could be so much fun?! Stay tuned for our next neighborhood adventure.

On November 13th, The City Club hosted a hugely successful fundraiser for the San Francisco Firefighters Toy Drive.
We raised over $9,000.00 in just 3 hours for this great organization! In addition to mingling with Santa, guests enjoyed a Speakeasy-themed evening full of delicious cuisine, spirits, wines, and libations in the 155 Society.
It’s not too late to participate! Now though December 19th we will be collecting toys on the 10th Floor of the Club – look for the toy barrel and join in the fun by bringing in a book, board game, stuffed animal, soccer ball, or whatever your favorite toy is. Ages of recipients: babies to 14 years old.
Thanks to our corporate sponsor Sterling Bank & Trust, and all of our wonderful Members and friends.
Let’s make the holidays shine for as many of our city’s kids as we can!
