We haven’t been receiving much rain in San Francisco but that hasn’t stopped our local florist from sourcing the most beautiful stems to produce gorgeous arrangements!

Here at The City Club our centerpieces are nothing short of amazing whether you want to go with something as simple as an Orchid with some greenery and Manzanita Branches or an arrangement that is more elaborate with a variety of flowers, our in house florist Ricardo Ramirez Floral Design does it all.

As always, you’re welcome to use your preferred florist for any events at the Club, and we are happy to share Ricardo’s contact information with you if you are looking for something extra special and complementary to our decor.

Stop and admire on your next visit to the Club!

Mothers Day Brunch 5.10.15

MD flowers

City Club Members came together on Sunday, May 10 to celebrate Mom!

Mothers & Grandmothers, Kids & Grandkids, Dads, Grandfathers, and extended families all made their way to our spectacular buffet.

Executive Chef Munoz really went all out and created a thing of beauty that had some of everything – and more! From Fluffy Pancakes with Strawberry Compote & Whipped Cream, to Roast Leg of Lamb, an extravagant Caviar Bar and more Tortes, Pies & Cakes than should be legal in one place – it was a showstopper!

All that and a String Quartet to set the mood. A really lovely way to celebrate Mom!  If you didn’t make it this year, please come and join us next year.

Pre-Cinco de Mayo Party with 7×7 Magazine and Hornitas Tequila

7x7Mixers (2)

Every so often we love the opportunity to step outside of our own venue and see what’s happening around town!

Last week, members of our sales team enjoyed a Pre-Cinco de Mayo party at Southside Spirit House. The event was sponsored by 7×7 Magazine and Hornitas Tequila.

A $10 donation at the door proceeded La Cocina, a San Francisco based organization whose mission is to cultivate low income food entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their businesses by providing affordable commercial kitchen space, industry-specific technical assistance, and access to market opportunities.

We love a good excuse to support our friendly SF neighbors and nonprofits!
