Q: Favorite thing I currently have hanging in my closet is ______
A: My mother’s red coat. I don’t even wear it – it’s ill-fitting and the buttons are scuffed. When my mother came to the San Francisco in the 70’s, she spent her last $50 on this double-breasted wool pea coat in poppy red, and I can’t throw it away.
Q: What’s your favorite restaurant in the Bay Area?
A: Heirloom Café, hands down. Simple, great, unpretentious fare served in what feels like your grandma’s dining room – with the wine list of a Michelin restaurant to boot.
Q: Why are you most excited to be working with the Stacy McCain Event Planning team?
A: They really understand people and relationships. In today’s crazy wedding world, that’s really something.
