Fire Brunch 5 at Biergarten

April 18, 1906 was a catastrophic day for San Francisco. In the early morning hours, a great earthquake roiled the ground beneath the city. A couple living on Hayes Street at Gough tried to make the most of the situation by eating breakfast like civilized people. Unfortunately, their meal of ham and eggs caught fire and went on to burn for four days.

For the fifth year in a row, The Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association is hosting a community brunch to gather in remembrance of the Great Fire. Aside from coming together for some delicious brunch at Biergarten, it’s an excuse to meet your neighbors in advance of another neighborhood-wide emergency. All proceeds will benefit the activities of the HVNA.

If you’re an early visitor to Ritual Coffee or Juice Shop, you can swing by for an historic walking tour of the neighborhood at 10am.
