Sinatra Party Wrap-up [PHOTOS]

Saturday was the 100th Anniversary of Sinatra’s /the Voice/La Voz/Chairman of the Board/the Sultan of Swoon/  birthday and Wingtip’s fifth annual Sinatra Party. To celebrate the main man’s centennial, we here at Wingtip went all out and threw a bash the only way we know how: in style.

Fred Perry: From Court To Cloth

“Back the Brits! Back the Brits!” November 29th, Great Britain, in prime fashion, defeated Belgium, in the finals of the Davis Cup (think World Cup of tennis), ending a 79 year Davis Cup drought. The last time they were crowned champions was in 1936 when they were led by the formidable duo of Fred Perry and Bunny Austin. This year they were led by the defensive-minded, world no. 2 men’s tennis player, Andy Murray (pictured below in the 2008 Wimbledon quarter finals). Murray, now a definitive future Hall-of-Famer, has accomplished feats only achieved by one other Englishmen in seven decades.

This Thursday: Michael Toschi Trunk Show

Visit Wingtip this Thursday, 12/10, from 12-8pm, to meet one of our dearest vendors, shoemaker Michael Toschi. Toschi will be showing off new fall/winter styles, and with every purchase of a new pair of Toschi shoes, you will be treated to your choice of a pair of Toschi S1 socks or a bottle of bubbly Prosecco. We will also roll out a charcuterie plate, fresh from the Wingtip kitchen.

Spectre Looms over Sundance Kabuki

Last night, in an emerging Wingtip tradition, members were treated to a private screening of the latest James Bond film, “Spectre.” Guests enjoyed a medley of skewers, bruschetta, and cocktails. As expected, outfits ranged from your standard evening wear to classic Bond character renderings, such as Dr. Holly Goodhead and Emilio Largo. (For the record, your humble neighborhood journalist wore a midnight blue evening jacket with peak lapels and blue satin trim, a wing-collar tuxedo shirt, black trousers, a slim black bow tie, and a white pocket square.)

Opulent October Halloween Costumes

Halloween is less than a week away, and if you haven’t put together your costume or decided what you’re gonna wear, fear not, for we have your back. Here’s a list of costumes you can put together at Wingtip–or perhaps from your own well-equipped closet.

Wednesday: Book Launch, “Drinking The Devil’s Acre”

You may have stumbled upon his Lower Nob Hill watering hole; you may have had his signature cocktail, The Laughing Buddha; you may have even discussed the history of San Francisco cocktails with him. For those who don’t know, we’re talking about Duggan McDonnell, “the new dean of western cocktail writing,” who, after seven years of operating Cantina on a foundation of farmer’s market produce and historical cocktail wisdom has summed up his knowledge thus far in a tome called “Drinking the Devil’s Acre: A Love Letter from San Francisco and her Cocktails.”

Finishing Touches: Wingtip’s Keith Griego Twiddles Beats, Styles, Shows, and Graphics

Each Sunday morning this past August, at the Legionnaire Saloon in downtown Oakland, a reunion was being forged. Foreign Legion, made up of the lounge’s proprietor Prozack Turner, along with Marc Stretch, and Wingtip’s own Keith Griego aka DJ Design, had not performed together in a decade. But a call from one of the talent bookers at Oakland’s Hiero Day music festival set the gears in motion.

To Foreign Legion, the stage show is at least as important as the setlist. After all, this is the group that once got a management deal based on a stage stunt that involved the featherweight emcee Prozack Turner hiding in the backpack of heavyweight emcee Stretch, before the latter turned his back to the audience so the former could unzip the bag and perform a verse from the cozy confines of the backpack–still hovering three feet over the stage.
