Spotlight Feature #2: The Welcome Home Reception – Blue and Gold Night…

San Rafael Joe’s is well-known for its contemporary Italian-American cuisine, modest prices, and convivial atmosphere. They have been doing what they do in downtown San Rafael for over 72 years.

Our 50th Reunion Celebration will slide into San Rafael Joe’s Banquet Room from 6:00 pm until 10:30 pm on Friday, October 11, 2019. The Welcome Home Reception: Blue and Gold Night festivities will include a cocktail party-style event with delicious hors d’oeuvres and ‘No-Host/Cash Bar’ beverage service – right in the heart of downtown San Rafael. We’ll be playing our class music, telling tall tales, enjoying great food and drinks, bidding on ‘Silent Auction’ items in support of our Class Scholarship Fund and celebrating 50-years of memories and life events together. (BTW, convenient parking is available in several off-street and on-street areas of 4th Street.)

There’s seating and table space for 200+ people in San Rafael Joe’s Banquet Room. So, now’s the time for all good 69er Trojan’s to make your reservations and plan to attend!

The casual atmosphere and spacious surroundings in San Rafael Joe’s Banquet Room will lend itself well to our 50th Reunion Celebration. In fact, on both Friday and Saturday nights there will be a variety of ‘Silent Auction’ items on display – all of which have been made, produced, and/or created by our fellow classmates over the course of their past 50+ years of living. So, besides making a contribution in support of our Class Scholarship Fund – anyone who wins an auction item will also be picking up an original work of something – made by someone they’ve known from as far back as 1969. For instance…

Natalie Cox has performed for over 40+ years as a professional harpist throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, both as a soloist and with her various ensembles. Whether in concert or for special occasions Natalie offers many styles of music to fit every mood.

We’re all gonna be treated to some high quality Natalie Cox Harp music in two different ways: She will be donating several of her audio CD’s in support of the ‘Silent Auction’, and she will be performing on Saturday night at the Marinwood Community Center as a part of our ‘Talent Showcase’ during the BBQ dinner festivities. If you would like to learn more about Natalie and her musical work please check out her website here. Plus…

Michael Moss has been an avid outdoor and nature photographer for most of his life and his travels have taken him to 28+ countries around the world.

If you’ve always wanted to have a Michael Moss print grace the walls of your home or office – this October you’ll have a chance to bid on and perhaps win one – whilst supporting our Class Scholarship Fund in the process. (Whether or not Michael performs as a part of the ‘Talent Showcase’ on Saturday night will depend upon how much alcohol he consumes, and/or how high the bidding/betting gets up to between us all as coercive co-conspirators.) If you would like to learn more about Michael’s work and see examples of his award winning photographs online please visit his cafepress online portal here or, his redbubble gallery here or, his zazzle online storefront here.

Welcoming friends and families since 1947, San Rafael Joe’s has established itself as a Marin County tradition. With a full bar, large dining rooms, and banquet facilities, along with live music five nights a week, they can accommodate an array of occasions, from intimate gatherings to special events.

At San Rafael Joe’s on Friday night October 11th your taste buds will also be able to enjoy a variety of Italian cold cuts, cheeses, mini-meatballs, deep fried zucchini, stuffed mushroom caps, Frittata, Bruschetta, deep fried ravioli and calamari, as well. Plus, we will have our own private ‘No-Host/Cash Bar’ service within the Banquet Room to keep the libations flowing. Can you say: “A good time will be had by all!”
