San Francisco Heritage 2020 lecture series kickoff. Rooted in Resilience: Legacy Bars and Restaurants

July 16, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Denise Clifton, author of Tables from the Rubble, will lead a conversation with the women behind two of San Francisco’s most beloved legacy businesses: Julie Ho of Sam Wo Restaurant, and Maralisa Simmons-Cook of Specs’ Twelve Adler Museum Café. Taking historic context from Denise’s book, which highlights stories of food businesses that emerged in the recovery years after the 1906 Earthquake and Fire, this panel will explore how legacy businesses are now struggling – and adapting– through a new, very different disaster.

This is the first in a series of virtual lecture events celebrating Women in Preservation.
