Summer’s in full swing, and so is The SF Shipyard’s series of Resident Appreciation Events, with two lingering as happy memories and another yet to come.
The events, staged by Curiosity Atlas, offer us a chance to enjoy some of the things that make life special in our community. We get a chance to explore new places, try new things and meet new people through workshops and studio visits showcasing the creative energies of Hunter’s Point, Bayview and Dogpatch.
Making a big splash at the beginning of summer was the May 25 social at Seven Stills of San Francisco Brewery and Distillery, ushering in the Memorial Day weekend with some state-of-the-art sipping and mingling limited to 20 participants.
Hosted by owner Tim Obert, guests spent a novel evening getting acquainted with Seven Stills’ trend-setting process of distilling whiskey from the beers brewed right on-site. The new drinking buddies started by sampling beers in their pre-distillery mode and moved on to tasting the aged Seven Stills craft whiskey drawn directly from the barrel.

June 29 brought an equally fascinating excursion: Making Art from the Unexpected was hosted by the Reclaimed Room, a gallery of artists working exclusively in reclaimed and recycled materials, located at 701 Amador Street.
This time 15 art pioneers got a chance to fashion one-of-a-kind masterpieces from reusable, recycled, and remanufactured building and landscaping materials, harvested from Building Resources, the half-acre creative playground of artists Miles Epstein and Angel Gurgovits.
The host artists also supplied guidance and the necessary tools, while libations and a light dinner helped to fuel participants’ imaginations. Check out photos on our Facebook page.
Coming up next is an adventure in bread-making, a July 26 workshop at Fox and Lion Bread Company limited to 10 participants who have already RSVP’ed.
Owner Xan Devos will school the new bakers in how to create the perfect loaf and guide them in creating a personal sourdough starter while their bread is in the oven. Snacks and wine will help leaven the occasion.
