events Best of the Bay Area 2009 on
June 2009

Each year San Francisco magazine celebrates the city’s exemplary offerings in its July “Best of” issue, in which readers and Bay Area residents weigh in on what makes the Bay Area the best place to live work, and play.

Come join San Francisco magazine as they reveal their “Best of” picks for the most excellent dining, shopping, entertainment, and nightlife at this year’s ninth annual Best of the Bay Area gala.

The festivities showcase premier restaurant tastings of specialty hors d’oeuvres from over 40 restaurants, such as A16’s Honey & Basil Panna Cotta with Blackberries and Buckwheat Cookies, La Folie’s Truffle Gougères with Fontina Cheese & Chilled Pea Soup, and SPQR’s Housemade Foccacia with Tomato, Onion, Ricotta and Sesame Seeds. The gala will also feature 12 open bars serving signature cocktails and beer, live entertainment, and lounges with local wine, auctions, and dancing.

The Best of the Bay Area party brings the July “Best of” issue to life while supporting Family House, one of the city’s most respected nonprofit organizations. Family House provides free, temporary housing for families of children being treated for cancer at UCSF Children’s Hospital. The entirety of the event’s proceeds will be donated to Family House.
