Maria's Thursday Night Special @ Presidio Yacht Club with The Doggone Blues Band

It's Maria's Thursday Night Special time again at the Presidio Yacht Club! This gem of a spot near Cavallo Point in Sausalito is a great place to enjoy a beer or a glass a wine with one of the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge. On Thursday's,  M&M member Maria Perrin cooks up some great eats while local bands provide the music. It's always a great time and the dance floor is usually full. On this evening , The Doggone Blues Band will provide some classic blues and beyond. It was a great time the last time there earlier in the year and this will no doubt be a repeat! Come join in the fun! Come early and stay late! 

Grill starts up around 5pm.  Music at 7pm.

The Presidio Yacht Club DOES except credit cards for food and drinks BUT NOT FOR TIPS or cover charge for the music.

Cover charge for the entertainment is $5.

    The people and the band were fantastic! I had to leave early because my friend was starving and there was a very grumpy bartender doing the work of two people. I will never go there again hungry...Sorry Maria, but you could have been more friendly.

    Travis Marina AKA Presidio Yacht Club is run by Travis Air Force base. Like I said before I established Thursday Nights. I, solely, on my own, do all of the cooking, band booking, advertising, and anything else that need be. The recent occurance of someone who drank too much & accused me of wrong doing put an abrubt end to the service I strived to give to my patrons. I am now limited to using only those ingredients already on the premises for my cooking.I am also limited to preparing food in a commercial establishment using non commercial equipment. It is a challenge, and also very frustrating. I am trying to get my boss to stock a few more items in the kitchen so that I can go back to having my dinner specials. Guaranteed you will like the service a whole lot more!

    Maria does an awful lot of work to make the Thursday nights happen. She is in a tough spot in terms of staff, costs and budget.

    Before more of you form your opinions on me, let me give you a bit of backround. I solely created and established the Thursday Night Specials at the Presidio Yacht Club about 4 years ago. For the first 2 years, I was bringing in a home-cooked meal, which I prepared at my home and brought in. Then I was asked to make sure that all food was prepared on site. So I would go into work either a day ahead or early Thursday morning and use the commercial kitchen downstairs to do all of the cooking. The grill was NEVER open on a Thursday! You had your choice of my dinner special or pizza. Unless you chose to order a pizza there was no waiting for your food. It was ready to serve! I gained my reputation on this! Just recently, Not more than 2 months back, someone came in, saw my food money going into my tip jar & accused me of stealing. After 4 1/2 yrs, my cooking ended that day! THE GRILL IS NOW OPEN!

    I was just reading the comments made by several members here, and feel an urgent need to respond! . First of all, my sincere apologies to anyone that thought I was rude to them! That was not my intent whatsoever! Sabrina.. yes, the pizza's are frozen to start. They are Viccolo pizza's! My boss orders those, i do not have anything to do with what is stocked. Just for the record, i am a certified Food Handler, and YES I DO WEAR GLOVES WHEN HANDLING YOUR FOOD! I remove them when I leave the kitchen. I also use hand sanitizer which I keep by the cash register that I bring in myself!
    We do not have a big commercial size oven in the kitchen, we have a small convection oven. This oven can only fit 3 pizzas at one time and it takes up to 20 minutes to cook 3 pizzas. Let's say you order a pizza at 8;00. I alrealdy have 3 previous orders cooking. I have to wait until those are done.. 15-20 minutes, BEFORE i can cook yours! Yes, it will take 45 minutes minimum! I have no control over that!
