Bruce Baillie’s 85th Birthday Party Pot-Luck

In the spirit of the early days of Canyon Cinema, all are invited to bring a dish to pass, share memories, catch up with old friends and maybe make some new ones too. Bruce, Lori and Bob are making the journey from Washington state to join us in these festivities. So this is a great chance to swing by and say hello to them on their short visit to the Bay!

It’s a free event. Bring a dish if you can – it is not required for entry! One thing to note is that the venue will be charging for all beverages (but not water), so if you can throw a few bucks in the donation jars that’ll help us out.

The Candy Kitchen is located next door to St. Francis Fountain at 2801 24th St in San Francisco at York, between Bryant and Hampshire.
