With Anne marie Ceralvo

Cheers! Here's to creating the ultimate home entertaining hub. Cocktail enthusiast Anne Marie Ceralvo will show you how to stock and style your bar cart using festive glassware, barware and accessories. Watch as she creates easy-to-execute recipes - you're sure to be inspired to personalize your own party central.

Anne Marie is a Bay Area native who enjoys incorporating her knowledge and enthusiasm into crafting the best possible guest experience. She enjoys building libations that cater to each person's drink preferences, but it's a real treat when a patron says to her: "Make me what you want--'Dealer's Choice!'" She believes it is the perfect opportunity to introduce a new cocktail, to perhaps educate a guest about its origin, or to simply expand that person's horizon in the realm of spirits.

Taylor Mac - A 24 Decade History of Popular Music

Taylor Mac

Friday, September 15 - Sunday, September 24 | 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM
THE CURRAN THEATRE | 445 Geary Street

Chapter I (1776-1836) September 15

The American Revolution from the perspective of the yankee doodle dandy, the early woman’s lib movement, an epic battle between drinking songs and early temperance songs, a dream sequence where the audience is blindfolded and the heteronormative narrative as colonization.

Chapter II (1836-1896) September 17

Walt Whitman and Stephen Foster go head to head for the title of Father of the American Song, culminating in the queerest Civil War Reenactment in history. Oh, and: a production of The Mikado set on Mars.

Chapter III (1896-1956) September 22

A Jewish tenement, a WWI trench, a speakeasy, a depression, a zoot suit riot all make the white people flee the cities.

Chapter IV (1956-the present) September 24

Bayard Rustin’s March on Washington leads to a queer riot, sexual deviance as revolution, radical lesbians, and a community building itself while under siege.

A 24-DECADE HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC is Taylor Mac’s multi-year effort to chart a subjective history of the United States through is a unique mash-up of music, history, performance, and art that were popular throughout the country, and in its disparate communities, from 1776 to the present day.
