Samurai at the Asian Art Museum

When did June become such a busy month of blockbusters? Aren’t we all supposed to be toe-deep in the sand, reveling in the bliss of summer sloth?

Apparently not. As the culturati dished out endless dollops of tantalizing invites last month: Samurai at the Asian Art Museum, Tut at the de Young, Gordon Getty at the SF Conservatory of Music. And the indefatigable and stylish Charlotte Mailliard Shultz hosting a round of private parties with great panache.

First up? The opening-night gala for the Lords of the Samurai: The Legacy of a Daimyo Family exhibition (through Sept. 12) at the Asian Art Museum.
