We understand your requirement and provide quality works.We’re so excited to begin to bring back in-person civic events in this new series we’re calling Manny’s @ Curio dinner and a conversation series – The Future of San Francisco.

Is SF becoming a caricature of itself? Heather Knight & Joe Eskenazi discuss

On April 15th we are discussing politics. Learn more below:

The San Francisco School Board. Reopening and renaming our public schools. The Former VP of the Board accused of racism then suing her colleagues. The Attempt to Recall the DA. The FBI Investigation of Corruption. The Fight for the Ferris Wheel. Shelter in Place Hotels. A $100 Million Recology Payment. The last year has been filled with political drama that could have been pulled directly from a TV script.

Painting the Pandemic & Future of Public Art w/ Fnnch and Serge Gay Jr.

On April 22nd we are discussing art. Learn more below:

The void created by the pandemic’s chilling effect on our City was partly filled by a proliferation of public art. The art beautified. It brought smiles to our faces. It made us think. It gave us hope.

What’s the Future of the Office in SF? w/ SPUR CEO Alicia John-Baptiste

On May 5th we are discussing the future of the office. Learn more below:

For those who worked in office settings, the pandemic forced us to change the way we worked overnight. Working from home went from a unique to ubiquitous. What will the future hold? Will the office workers be forced to come back to HQ? What would a hybrid model (partly at home and partly at an office) mean for the local economy, for the sense of life on our streets, for our downtown, and for the physical layout and feel of the offices themselves?

A New Era of Transit? How We’ll Get Around Post Pandemic with SFMTA Leaders

On May 13th we are discussing transportation. Learn more below:

With almost no warning or real preparation our streets went quiet last year. The cable cars stopped. The entrance to the underground stations were covered. And those of us that could, waited.

Over a year later we have seen a ton of rethinking of what happens on our streets and how we use our public transportation in response to the physical needs of the pandemic.
