To Do: Spring Social Calendar











So many of my favorite San Francisco events come in the spring and early summer each year! Start marking your calendars now for:

Chinese New Year - February 11 - It's year of the dragon, an auspicious time to celebrate with the city. The flower market fair that takes over Chinatown the weekend after is almost more fun than seeing all the local school kids dressed up in costumes during the parade.

Bouquets to Art - March 13-17 - A wonderful event where local florists create hundreds of arrangements inspired by the art at the Legion of Honor. Past members-only events have been a zoo, so I may take a day off work to visit when it's quieter this year.

Big Bang Gala - April 19 - Rob and I went to this for the first time last April thanks to the invitation of a friend whose wife works at the museum. By arriving right on time, we had total run of the place for a while. Plenty of delicious food, strong drinks, clever decorations and fun entertainment.

Black & White Ball - June 2 - Moved from May to June for 2012, this is one of my all time favorite events. It's so big, that they only hold it every other year. I've been reminding friends since October! Get your tuxedo and gown ready and fundraiser for the symphony in their centennial year.

Have you ever participated in the Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt? It's a giant scavenger hunt for the city that happens on the same day as the parade. I've never gone on it, but my friends have and love it (except when it rains...)
