Out in SF with family

Our kids are mostly grown up now. Four of the six are in their twenties but one is soon moving up to a new decade. The two youngest are teenagers.

This year we had the thrill of having the two oldest ones taking us out and treating us to meal and an event. This is quite the switch-a-roo. Amazingly, each was able to treat us to an event we’ve always wanted to go to but had not been to yet. The impulse for the outings was to celebrate our birthdays at the beginning of the year.

First, the oldest daughter made reservations for us at San Francisco SupperClub. This unique restaurant/club is described as “Cabaret” meets “Cirque du Soleil” and is located in the SoMa neighborhood near the SF Museum of Modern Art. The restaurant has one seating per night of a five-course meal. Dinners lounge on cushy white beds in the bi-level space while being entertained by a rotating cast of performances that include aerial acts, exotic dancers and amazing feats of skill. The night we went was the friends and family night at the beginning of a new theme run for the month of February. The show featured several performers that teach at Circus Center San Francisco where our daughter is taking a trapeze class. We had a wonderful time.

A couple weeks later our oldest son arranged a Sunday brunch for us and several of his friends at Harry Denton’s Starlight Room atop the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. “Sunday’s A Drag” is a sumptuous brunch with a classic drag show hosted by Donna Sachet. It has been going on for six years and features Cassandra Cass, Holotta Tymes, Kendra Monroe, Lady Tia, and Mahlae. Donna Sachet is the go to hostess of San Francisco especially for the LGBT community. She is an incredible performer, community activist and spokesperson. We found the drag show and brunch to be great fun.

The Starlight Room is known as a swanky place for drinks. Perched on the 21st floor of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel, its lush velvet booths, swinging jazz music in the evenings and incredible views are all that's needed to bring out the inner Rat Packer in you. It is located near Union Square.
