Lessons Learned Starting and Running Restaurants and Food Services July...
SCORE Mentors – What do you need to consider when you start a restaurant or food service business? Learn from three SCORE Counselors who have successful track records owning their own food service businesses. They will presentation the lessons they have learned and also answer questions. Some of the planned discussion topics include: Why, what, and how do you research as you prepare your business plan? What are the various kinds of opportunities you might consider? How much money will you need and where might you get it? What is a business plan and why is it so important to your success? How do you get and manage the people you will need to run your business? Pre-registration is required. The preferred form of payment is online via Eventbrite. However, if this is not possible, then a check or money order will be accepted. If the payment is made in cash, it will have to be exact since the SCORE office does not have access to change. If change is needed then the attendee will have to get the change needed at one on the retail stores on the first floor so the exact amount can be paid.

Fresh out of college, the young couple was searching for the perfect locale to try out their newly minted U.C. Davis training. Thirty years later, the Smith Family is one of the most influential and respected growers on California’s Central Coast – the Smith Family has been instrumental in Monterey’s rise to prominence as a world-class winegrowing region. Today Rich and his son Jason oversee 3,000 acres of grapes throughout Monterey County, providing fruit to Beringer, Hess, Mondavi, Kendall-Jackson, and many others. In 1988, the Smiths began producing very limited, much sought-after wines under their own P.S.V. banner... The rugged Santa Lucia Mountains frame Monterey County’s fertile Salinas Valley on the west, separating it from the Pacific Ocean. The famed Santa Lucia Highlands appellation encompasses a series of small alluvial terraces on the lower slopes of the range – perfect for boutique growers of world-class Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. The vines of this unique hillside district enjoy cooling ocean breezes and fog from nearby Monterey Bay. The resulting slow, gentle ripening contributes to California’s longest “hang time” – creating exceptional intensity, complexity, and balance in the grapes. Planted in 1973, the sixteen small vineyard plots of Paraiso Springs occupy unique microclimatic niches on the 400-acre estate. With varying elevations and soils, each plot boasts its own terroir, its own special sense of place… The Smith Family has earned its reputation through constant experimentation and innovation, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. Combining time-honored techniques with these latest advances, Rich and Claudia’s son-in-law, winemaker David Fleming, practices his art – hands-on, barrel-by-barrel. The limited release wines of P.S.V. are among the most awarded in the state, eagerly sought after by collectors across the country…

Off the wall - Art sale by 'Mission Grafica Printmaking Studio'
Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts – Mission Grafica Printmaking Studio is pleased to offer prints from our archive ranging from 1973-2017. Join us and own a piece of history from the Mission. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For the last 40 years, Mission Grafica Printmaking Studio has been a unique and valuable resource for Bay Area artists to create prints and posters. Founded in 1977 by artists and activists in San Francisco's Latinx community, Mission Grafica became a hub for the creation of posters and prints that reflected the community’s desire for social and economic justice, and on such issues as immigration, displacement, and Third World freedom struggles. Mission Grafica Printmaking Studio remains connected to its roots but has opened its arms to a new generation of people, images, and ideas in screenprinting, etching, and mono printing. In addition to our regular adult classes, Mission Grafica has free printmaking classes for youth, ages 10 through 13 years of age and through our collaboration with Youth Art Exchange we have afterschool printmaking classes for San Francisco high school students. In the Fall Mission Grafica will offer a printmaking class for seniors. Mission Grafica has proven itself to be a creative haven for artists to explore the practices of printmaking in a community-based and affordable studio space and stands out as one of the last grassroots art spaces in San Francisco.
