Other Outings include:

2. Unique opportunity suggested by Bob Gonzalez that I highly recommend.  Enjoy Vintage Music and tour the lovely Victorian Home of Richard Reutlinger in San Francisco. Concerts are on specific Sat & Sun afternoons @ 2 pm (doors open @ 1:30 pm so you can tour the old Victorian before the concert.). Monica & I attended April 1 Mimi Blais concert AND thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The next concerts are:  Nov. 11 & 12 for Max Keenlyside and December 9 & 10 Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi. 

The location is  824 Grove Street, San Francisco, CA 94117; the door opens at 1:30 pm and the concert begins at 2 pm; the price is $25 per person. Make the check payable to Richard Reutlinger and mail it to his home on 824 Grove St.  Free champagne and snacks are served during intermission as you enjoy Richard’s fine collection of mechanical musical instruments.  Be sure to mention which day you wish to attend and buy your tickets early to guarantee seating. 

3.. A tour of the Pinball Museum suggested by Lee Turner, but understand you will be standing all the time. Lee comments were that he was not prepared to be impressed, but as he got into it, he increasingly liked it and stayed for nearly 2 hours.  The machines are laid out in a number of different rooms in chronological order.  There are a huge number of them which you can play them for as long as you want and they are “free” – but there is an entry fee to get in ($20 discounted to $10 with Group on).  But here’s the downside for those with creaky bones with all the standing.  However, great for kids of all ages.

 4.. Pizza in the Piazza at Jacuzzi Winery on the last Sunday of the month from 12 pm – 3 pm. Next dates are Sunday Oct. 29 and Sunday Nov. 26… Treat yourself to lunch in the Piazza! Enjoy wine paired with pizza made fresh in their kitchen with sustainably grown ingredients from Greenstring Farm. Cost is $10 for a slice & glass of paired wine, OR $30 for an 8″ pizza & bottle of paired wine.(Tax not included in pricing. Dates subject to change. Reservations not needed.)

6. Marin Theatre Company: Sept. 28 – Oct. 22 “Thomas & Sally” by Thomas Bradshaw.  An explosive world premiere by a 2017 PEN Award Winner.
