It’s that time of year again and the events are coming non-stop. If you are looking for an all out night of fun, you can bet you’ll be in good company at the San Francisco Symphony’s Black & White Ball. If you’re looking to hobnob with the symphony’s stylish young professionals (and who wouldn’t) then you’ll want to get tickets to the Bash Beyond the Ball. It’s put on by Symphonix and takes place right in the middle of the big party. To remind everyone how fun the group is they held the launch at Emporio Armani signaling the count down.
It was an extra spruced up after-work crowd that filled the space around the enormous bar. Most donned traditional black and white while a few others opted to serve as a pop of color. Seen around the bar were Co-Chairs, Gwyneth Borden and Bob Perun, Kathryn Pellegrini Inglin, Ye-Hui Lu, Zen St. Clair, Adam Steinhorn and Steven Dinkelspiel who’s San Francisco Magazine is a sponsor of the “Bash.” Others included Kelly Grimes, Hooman Khalili, Barry Shotts and Erik Noland.
