What you'll do
Second Saturday Salon is a monthly event that brings people together to share an experience of food, music, and art. Meals will be presented by our in-house team of world class chefs, and occasionally guest chefs. We offer a variety of great global cuisine with our unique Bay Area twist. Our art is curated by our partner at Maximilian Contemporary Gallery. Music is selected to offer the guests an intimate, one-night-only style performance different from all other shows we present. Our chefs will walk guests through the meal and explain the inspirations and ingredients, offering insights into our producers and a little about themselves. Our night begins with a mixer, allowing for guests to enjoy the art and meet their fellow guests. Soon after, all guests will be seated and presented with the amouse bouche. The rest of the meal will be served family style, allowing for guests to interact and enjoy the meal together. As the dessert plate is dropped, the show begins and guests are taken away on their musical journey.

We have been hosting events for nearly 25 years. It all began as a casual music and food event at our house but morphed into a house concert series, piling people into our living room and kitchen for a monthly music, food, and art event. In 2011 we formed a non-profit, and in 2012 we moved our operations to a formal venue, hosting around 75 people for shows 3-4 times per week for the last 7 years. We have refined our presentation and offerings, creating a unique experience for our guests.
