    Book launch party for Emily's Luchetti's latest book, So Who's Counting?

    Sixty is the new fifty, seventy’s the new sixty, and older is getting younger every day. Instead of cloying sentimentality or the standard sagging-body-part jokes, it strikes the perfect balance of humor, guidance, reflection, bon mots. Quotes are divided into eight sections, such as “As Old as You Feel,” “Laughter: The Best Prescription,” and “Aged to Perfection.” So Who’s Counting is all about aging with gusto and celebrating what lies ahead. Book launch party with an elegant spread of pastries, savory brunch bites, coffee and wine, and of course a reading by Emily. 

    Tickets: $25, including an autographed copy of the book.

    Tequila… You either love it or drank too much Jose Cuervo one evening when you were in college and lived, despite a bottle of Tylenol, to regret it. PBS Chef Joanne Weir is the author of TEQUILA, a Guide to Flights, Types, Cocktails and Bites and she knows tequila. Join her at Copita Tequileria y Comida in Sausalito for an exclusive tasting event. The event will feature passed appetizers and a three-course seasonal tasting menu by Joanne and Chef Daniel Tellez, paired with spring tequila cocktails and a tequila tasting flight by Copita’s bar team. Reza Esmaili, Brand Ambassador of Casa Noble, will be with us for the evening sharing his extensive knowledge. Casa Noble is an award-winning, triple distilled, certified organic, small batch, highlands tequila. The event promises to be a lively and enriching evening complete with tasting, talking and learning all about this magical spirit.
