Obama visit: cocktails, dinner, brunch and lunch with 1 percenters

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

Looks like the Chronicle is officially out of the White House dog house. Carla Marinucci blogs that “we’ll serve as the local pool reporter” for President Obama’s two Democratic fundraisers this evening. The Chron was banished from local pool coverage for awhile after Marinucci had the temerity to snap images of the President (along with everyone else with a cell phone) during a protest ruckus at a downtown fundraiser last year.

As for the President’s visit: it’s cocktails at billionaire hedge fund manager Tom Steyer’s place in Pacific Heights, then dinner tonight at Ann and Gordon Getty’s. Tomorrow, he moves down to Silicon Valley for brunch with Medley Partners managing director Mark Heising before attending a lunch with Levi-Strauss heir John Goldman.
