Our friends at the fantastic San Francisco Ballet want to make your Thursday the new Friday! Thrill to a wide range of spectacular dance with specially-priced premium seats, plus an awesome post-performance cocktail reception where you can meet some of the City's premier artists—all for less than the cost of an evening out on the town.
There are some of us in the dating trenches who dread Valentines Day, with the attendant hearts and flowers, candy and Cupids—it can all feel just a little much for the unattached among us, and we find ourselves seeking the camaraderie of our fellow singletons, sharing war stories, and keeping our spirits up. It's in that vein that we partner with St-Germain, Chambers Eat+Drink, and Hotel Vitale to present a special evening in the City celebrating one of the most reliable and rewarding kinds of love: the kind shared with friends.
The Bay Area's gin fanatics were treated to an early holiday gift when Hendrick's Gin partnered with 7x7 to present the San Francisco edition of their Enchanted Forest of Curiosities.

On December 3rd, Glaceau and Smartwater staged their annual Elf Party (Facebook page) at San Francisco's Broadway Studios, designed to celebrate with friends, to look back on the past year, and to give back to the children in need. All guys don their best Elf gear complete with tights and ears. The gals dress up in their best and most creative holiday outfits, filling the room with Ms. Clauses, Vixen the Reindeers, Snow Women, and more.
Over the past nine years, the Elf Party has benefited charities like BayKids, My Two Front Teeth, and the Family Giving tree.
