7x7's May 2013 Travel Issue Launch at La Mar
7x7 unveiled our newest issue—dedicated to the most intriguing Latin American destinations for San Francisco's travelers—on a gorgeous day at La Mar Cebecheria Peruana on the Embarcadero.
Guests enjoyed the beautiful Bay Area spring weather while enjoying a variety of bites from La Mar's famed menu, and stayed cool with delicious cocktails—made with Barsol pisco and Karlsson's vodka—as well as icy Sapporo beer. Also on offer was a dedicated tasting station featuring wines from Peju Province Winery and Tess Wines.
The invite-only event brought together 7x7's editors, contributors and staffers with a few of San Francisco's buzziest citizens who were featured in the issue, and everyone rocked out to the excellent soundscape provided by DJ King Most.
