From Executive Director Jim Gebbie:

Happy Holidays! This year we will be holding our big, ever-popular Holiday Meeting bash on December 10. Joyce Kiehl, Communications Director of the Greater Palm Springs CVB, is hosting and has scored a coup—lunch at Mourad, a hot Moroccan restaurant in the heart of the San Francisco Financial District (140 New Montgomery). The dining spot, which opened in January 2015, is the creation of Michelin star chef Mourad Lahlou, who runs his namesake and sister restaurant Asiza.

The meeting starts at 11:30 a.m. and will run until 3 p.m. And you can bring a guest. The party will feature Middle Eastern specialties, some surprise gifts and holiday grog. Be sure to wear your most festive outfit!

With the last meeting of the year, we look forward to the New Year and many interesting and informative meetings already in the works for 2017. The New Year will also be ushering in a new BATW President and a few new Board members. We welcome them all.

Happy Holidays to you all!
