Tyler Florence has announced a new upstairs bar space at his financial district restaurant, Wayfare Tavern. The Sequoia will be the eatery’s exclusive bar experience. The 50-seat space is being designed by Ken Fulk and has a skylight view of the Transamerica building. It’s on the fourth floor of the building and will be accessible by a street-level door that is right next to Wayfare Tavern. The Sequoia is set to debut in March.
Tomorrow, the boys are back in town. The San Francisco Giants are hosting their annual FanFest at AT&T Park in anticipation of the upcoming season.
After a rough and disappointing season, the San Francisco 49ers are getting a fresh start with a new coach. Kyle Shanhan came into town on Wednesday. To celebrate the occasion, the 49ers made a video, that they shared on Twitter, of Shanhan’s first 49 hours in SF—check it out below. At a press conference earlier today, he announced the signing of the first six members of the team’s new coaching staff.
