Cable Car Capers return on Saturday, July 7th!
On July 7, 2018 1-6pm #DecoDrinks meets #SanFranciscohistory, as we spend an afternoon visiting some of the city's most special spots, along the California Street #cablecar line. Take the whole trip, or join us anywhere along the route!
#1920s - #1940s style daywear is appreciated; don a nifty hat, but make sure your shoes are comfortable. Be sure to bring car-fare -- the cable car is $7 per ride (no transfers). Cash for drinks will speed your service, too. See you there! Timetable below:
1:00 pm. Tadich Grill. 240 California Street. Tadich's is California's oldest restaurant, and its interior, menu and wonderful service are a sort of time-capsule of the 1920s - #1930s Those wishing to eat lunch before the Caper (a splendid idea) should arrive at this time in order to enjoy a meal. The clam chowder is highly recommended!
2:00-2:30 pm. Gather at the bar for a cocktail at #TadichGrill
2:30-3:00 pm. Cable car ride from Tadich Grill to California St. & Grant Ave. Arrive at #FarEastCafe - 631 Grant Avenue.
3:00-3:30 pm. The Far East Cafe dates from #1928 Enjoy the antique ceiling lanterns and notice the wood paneling and booths, while you sip a libation at the bar.
3:30-4:00 pm. Cable car ride to Mason St. Arrive at the #TongaRoom in the #FairmontHotel, 950 Mason Street.
4:00-4:45 pm. Not just any old tiki bar, the Tonga Room dates to #1929 when it replaced the hotel's Terrace Plunge. Enjoy the lagoon and watch out for the hurricane! The drinks are generous and tropical.
4:45 pm. Stroll down the hill to #StookeysClubModerne - @scmoderne is our favorite post- #Prohibition, #ADSC award-winning, watering hole - for a special #cocktail created just for us! 895 Bush Street.
