A Sneak Peak at the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show

October 18, 2012

A fun and eventful October continues here in the Bay Area with the annual San Francisco Fall Antiques Show next week, and we are thrilled to be a part of it. The almost week long festivities begin Wednesday, October 24th at Fort Mason, when we partner up with the Antiques Show on their Preview Party Benefit Gala, which helps fund Enterprise for High School Students. In the four days following the Gala, exhibitors will feature both fine and decorative art spanning over different time periods, countries and styles. Riding on the coattails of the America’s Cup here in San Francisco, this year’s Antiques Show features a nautical theme. The exhibits will largely center on the life aquatic with items ranging from sea shell crafted pieces to shipwrecked relics, delicate ship models to ancient sea faring tools. The weekly lecture series will focus on works of art and how many of them relate to the ocean, ships and sea travel.

Among the sea of artistic and decorative treasures, we encourage guests to navigate themselves to CaféGirandole where our Chef de Cuisine, Josip Martinovic, will be serving up delectable fare. Pulling from this years’ nautical theme, our menu (displayed below) was inspired by the fresh abundance of seasonal seafood and San Francisco treats. Try the Fisherman’s Lobster Bisque or our Meiggs Wharf Salmon and Bay Shrimp Salad. Toast to a day of antique perusing while supporting a good cause and enjoy a glass of wine or champagne.

The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show will run from Thursday, October 25 to October 28th, so don’t forget to get on board and buy your tickets for either the Gala, the Antiques Show, or both!
