Playworks Celebrates at the Barrel House

  1. Updates

Playworks San Francisco still knows how to throw the best party to herald the oncoming holiday season. On December 2nd, a former speakeasy known as The Barrel House donated its space for an incredible evening of live music, dancing, drinking, and games. Four square, a staple of Playworks coaches everywhere, drew adults and children almost as much as the neighboring dance floor. The Memoirs, a band featuring our very own Coach Natán, provided live music to welcome everyone for the first half of the evening. Coach Joe set up his DJ equipment and kept an upbeat tempo going for the rest of the night.

Our raffle was especially successful. Thanks go out to all our sponsors – Aveda Institute, Kabuki Springs, Bi-Rite Creamery, Fleet Feet Sports, Rickshaw Bagworks, Planet Granite, Pier 39, Bay Area Discovery Museum, and Aquarium of the Bay.

Thank you for everyone who came out to celebrate with us. We invite everyone back for next year's holiday party, so even more people can join in the fun!
