America’s Cup Celebration

Maybe you went to the Board of Supervisors meetings, maybe you didn’t, but that doesn’t matter for today’s ‘The Cup is Coming’ celebration, because everyone is invited to the 3 p.m. event in the Rotunda at City Hall. Larry Ellison, Mayor Newsom, Supervisor David Chiu, America’s Cup Organizing Committee Chair Mark Buell, America’s Cup Race Management CEO Iain Murray, plus AC Event Authority Chairman Richard Worth and CEO Craig Thompson will be in attendance. Like those who’ve already responded to our query in Monday’s ‘Lectronic about what the Cup coming to the Bay means for you we have many questions about how this whole thing will look. We’ll try to ask a few at today’s celebration, and we’ll try answer a whole lot more in the next week or so; details are forthcoming.
