What we're about

In another era of San Franciscan economic boom, there was the great Adolph Sutro. Arriving in San Francisco as a Jewish Immigrant from Prussia, he rose from sleeping on the floor of a general store to owning 12% of the city. With his wealth and imagination he poured magic upon the city in one great symphony of wonderment, philanthropy, and hope. We Children of Sutro, now rally around his legacy to regenerate that very symphony for our city. #HailSutro!

This group is for long-time San Francisco residents and new arrivals alike. We will not only be curating existing local events but also prototyping and hosting our own.

In the summer months we will be producing our own series of Sutronian Salon events filled with TED-like talks, up & coming live music performances, stand-up comedy and facilitated conversations about engaging and evolving the beautiful San Francisco culture of whacky, weird and wonderful.

Each quarter we will be throwing a larger SF-History-themed party with a strong line-up of local bands, performance artists, and other vaudeville talent.


Salon speaker subjects will range from SF History to current local issues; innovations in tech, play and wonderment; changes confronting our fare city; and issues of environmental change.


Curated local events will include civic engagement, environmental education, outlandish fun, live music, and arts education.
