Max’s “March Madness” Bar Mitzvah

We say it all the time – we LOVE a good party and we especially love a good party with a great theme done right!

A recent Bar Mitzvah that was held at The City Club took “March Madness” to a whole new level! We loved everything about Max’s basketball-themed celebration, from the cake to the yarmulkes and every detail in between. We’re partial to the love for the Golden State Warriors, but really, everything about this fun event brought out the hoops fans in all of us.

Those yarmulkes are amazing, aren’t they?! The guests all looked fantastic!

Congratulations, Max! We hope you and your family and friends had the best time celebrating your special day.

Happy March Madness! Wishing you a weekend full of bracket busters and exciting upsets!

Iron Horse Vineyards Winemaker Dinner 2.18.16

On Thursday, February 18th, The City Club welcomed Joy Sterling, CEO of Iron Horse Vineyards, who hosted our first Winemaker Dinner of the year. What a special evening! The aptly named Joy is not just a tireless Ambassador for the brand, but has an infectious enthusiasm for the products her family produces, and appreciates the ability that a wonderful glass of wine – sparkling or still – has to bring people together.

Iron Horse is one of Sonoma County’s most beautiful, small, independent, estate, family-owned wineries. A pioneer in the Green Valley appellation within the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County, the Iron Horse family is building a legacy of prestige sparkling wines and estate bottled Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Iron Horse’s renowned Sparkling Wines have been served at the White House for five consecutive Presidential Administrations, beginning with the historic Reagan-Gorbachev Summit Meetings ending the Cold War
