On Thursday, August 25th from 6:30 – 9:30PM, The NWBLK will be hosting an exclusive preview party for event producers and agencies, which will showcase the space’s potential and present re-construction plans for 2017. It is an opportunity to be the first to reserve the space - before anyone else.
In conjunction with our preferred catering, rental and entertainment partners, we have put together an evening that will fully submerse your senses in the potential of our 12,500 sq. ft. indoor and outdoor venue.
Stag Dining launched in 2010 in The San Francisco Bay Area beginning small and growing big… fast (and we know why). They are both ingredient and technique driven, creating faire that celebrates seasons, local artists, winemakers, brewmasters and talented bartenders. Perhaps you have had one of their southern influenced cocktails by Derby Cocktail Co. on Friday at Off The Grid – Fort Mason Center, read about their infamous ‘Snow Cone Cocktail’ on 7×7′s Best of the Bay drinks, or attended one of their Clandestine Dinner Series (guided by Chefs Jordan Grosser and Ted Fleury, who draw culinary inspiration from music, wilderness, travel and art). If you have not been introduced to Stag yet, you will now! This full-service event production and catering company duo has roots deep in whole sustainability and connecting people with great food in compelling settings.

Adam Allegro is an up and coming Bay Area based photographer. Following graduation from the United States Naval Academy and honorably resigning from active duty at the rank of Lieutenant, Adam spent two years backpacking and photographing around Asia and Latin America. In 2016, he received a Master of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute where he developed a refined focus in documentary photography. His vision is guided by the philosophy that “the physical space we interact with on a daily basis is both dynamic and unpredictable”. As a result, Adam observes people and their interactions with the space surrounding them, in an attempt to better understand his urban experience. He applies this photographic approach by focusing on methods which “humanize subjects through their mundane actions and daily lives”, with the perspective of creating a unique view for his audience to help them perceive the world a little more empathetically.

He has produced award winning work for Southwestern Bell and Bank of America, shot the Levi’s commercial voted one of the year’s ‘Ten Best’ by Time Magazine and more. His sound is reflective of his very diverse talents, ranging from wispy synth electronic to new age disco that you cannot help but to move to (Seriously. It’s contagious.). With playlist tags like “Kongas”, “Bed Shuttle”, “KRUNKNO” and “PurpleTurbo”, Woodard doesn’t ride the waves — He makes them.
