The San Francisco Opera Guild celebrated their 75th anniversary Thursday, April 10, with POPera! Departing from the opera's traditional association with foreign languages and a massive stage, POPera! took the form of a chic soiree and a lively cabaret, complete with an appearance by San Francisco golden boy, Jonathan Groff (of HBO's Looking fame).
On April Fools' Day, legendary San Francisco designer Ken Fulk enticed his guests to his All Fools' Party, an evening of illusion, merriment, and more than a few surprises. After issuing a faux press release declaring Fulk's desire to bring back the saber-toothed tiger from extinction, Fulk set the scene for an evening of fantastical suspended reality.
On March 25, 7x7's April Design Issue launched in style at interior design boutique The Future Perfect. Guests nibbled on artisan salami and sipped champagne while mingling with 7x7 editors and the star subjects of the design issue, including welder Jefferson Mack and Tom O'Connor ("Pop Life" feature).
