On August 23rd, 7x7 continued the late summer event series, The Cocktail Party 2012 with Maker's Mark, making a stop at the sleek, stylish Osha Thai Embarcadero Center in San Francisco's Financial District.
The rapturous crowd flooded the lounge to enjoy $5 specials on the evening's signature drink, The Dark Mark Logic, created by Osha Thai's bar manager Tou Meechukant—made with Maker Mark Bourbon, mango puree, peach schnapps, lemon juice, and fresh basil leaves.
On August 3-5, San Francisco became the food nation's culinary and libationary locus under a Grand Tasting Tent on Union Square with the return of the epic event, SF Chefs.
The fourth annual celebration of the good, smart, sustainable life highlighted the glorious bounty of Northern California. Passionate chefs from the Bay Area’s most coveted restaurants thrilled guests with a vast selection of fresh, local and delicious dishes, accompanied by perfectly paired wines, beers and spirits. The epic event also supported the Golden Gate Restaurant Association Scholarship Foundation.
On August 1st, a stunning array of the top chefs in San Francisco gathered at the award-winning waterfront restaurant La Mar Cebicheria for an exclusive dinner. The ultra-private event was hosted by La Mar’s chef Diego Oka, who was eager to re-introduce traditional Peruvian cuisine to the sophisticated palates of his peers in the Bay Area culinary community.
Event partner Sapporo provided icy-cold bottles to complement the fantastic lineup of dishes.
Hungry for change? Tim Lincecum is. That’s why he teamed up with popchips to “chip in” for charity. As a part of the popchips game changers program, fans were encouraged to submit ideas on how Tim could give back to the San Francisco community. After nominations were submitted, the community voted on the local causes and event ideas that they wanted to see popchips and Tim Lincecum bring to life. The top 5 ideas were shared with Tim and the cause that hit a home run, was the Muttville Senior Dog Rescue program.
