January 2024 GM Letter

“Everything is beautiful at the ballet.”

The famous line from Chorus Line rang true last week when the San Francisco Ballet held the opening night Gala at the War Memorial Opera House and then a party later at City Hall on January 24. US House of Representatives Speaker of the House Emerita, Nancy Pelosi, and her husband, Paul Pelosi were honorary chairs for this special event, which showcased the marvelous artists and musicians of SF Ballet and gave the City who knows how to celebrate a reason to. Call the Concierge desk to secure your ballet tickets and make a reservation at Absinthe or Bistro Benjamin for an early dinner before the performance.

The next time you walk up to the corner of Powell at California, as you look down Powell to Fisherman’s Wharf, look for the brightly lit Skye Star Ferris Wheel which has just been moved from Golden Gate Park. Plan a visit to the Wharf, look out over the bay as you ride on the Ferris Wheel and then dine on cioppino at Alioto’s.
