    • Calaveras Country, Angel Falls

    Join MAX SF Community Partner East Bay Network (EBN) and embark on a weekend trip to the Gold Country.

    Under the gently rolling hills of Calaveras County, protected from the summer sun and wintery blasts, are hundreds of limestone caverns. 

    Get away from the city for a couple of days and discover these breathtaking underground treasures.  We will visit at least one limestone cavern, Mercer Caverns or Moaning Caverns. 

    We may also take a trip to the Calaveras Big Trees State Park.  Here is where you can stand next to pristine groves of giant sequoias.

    We will also be visiting the historic Gold Rush era town of Murphys, tasting award-winning wines, and visiting eclectic art galleries, antique ships, museums and restaurants, many housed in buildings over 150 years old.

    Everyone is asked to make their own lodging arrangements.  EBN recommends the Travelodge in Angel’s Camp, where they have enjoyed our stay before.  Other lodging options are also available in Angel’s Camp and in Murphys. 

    Pertinent information will be sent to each participant approximately one week before the trip.

    Join MAX for an evening with the Smuin Ballet, San Francisco’s premier contemporary ballet company.

    On the bill for this evening’s performance is Dance Series 02, Smuin’s final program of its 25th anniversary season.  This program features The Best of Smuin, including the return of timeless Michael Smuin favorites such as “Unforgettable,” “Foolish Things,” and the red-hot chair solo “Fever”. This showcase of classics is packed with the ol’ razzle-dazzle, visually stunning effects, and twists that are Smuin’s trademarks.

    Dance Series 02 also features a highly-anticipated world premiere from master dance maker Amy Seiwert.  This smashing new work will feature Seiwert’s signature choreography, described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “keeping founder Michael Smuin’s legacy of unabashed showmanship alive.” As a choreographer, Seiwert has pushed the boundaries of dance by collaborating with artists of other disciplines and experimenting with its various forms and expressions from a classical base.  Now Artistic Director of Sacramento Ballet, Amy Seiwert returns to help Smuin celebrate its quarter-century anniversary celebration.

    • New Conservatory Theatre Center, 25 Van Ness Street, San Francisco
    Register


    Join MAX and the New Conservatory Theatre Center (NCTC), the premier LGBTQ theatre center in San Francisco, for the regional premiere of the smash Off-Broadway hit, The View Upstairs.

    Glam-rock, gospel and modern pop collide in the smash Off-Broadway hit The View UpStairs. When impulsive entrepreneur Wes buys a dilapidated building in the French Quarter of New Orleans, he’s phantasmically transported to its glory days: the UpStairs Lounge in 1973. Serving as a home, a church, and a gay dive-bar, the UpStairs was its own kind of paradise. As Wes meets the larger than life lounge regulars, he learns what has been gained and lost in the fight for equality, and how the past can help guide all of us through an uncertain future. 

    Written by Max Vernon and directed by NCTC Founder and Artistic Director, Ed Decker.

    Join MAX Champion Nick Wade for this fun evening of heartfelt comedy and fun.  After the show, Nick will be heading to nearby Martuini’s (Valencia St and Market St, a seven-minute walk from the theatre).  Feel free to stop by Martuni's and join Nick for a night cap after the show. 

    For more details about The View Upstairs, please click here.

    NCTC shows sell out quickly, so now is the time to purchase your tickets and join MAX for a fun and entertaining evening.

    Join us on Friday, August 2, from 6:00 to 8:30 pm for our monthly signature event, First Friday at the Hyatt Embarcadero Eclipse Bar (Atrium Lobby Level). The Eclipse Bar is one of our favorite places to meet and celebrate the first Friday of the month.

    This event promises to be a great way to visit with old friends, make new friends, and unwind at the end of the week.

    MAX First Friday events attract anywhere from 100 to 200 people.  With attendees running the gamut in age and interests, it's definitely a diverse group of men.  We always go out of our way to make everyone, especially newcomers, feel welcome, so if you've never joined us before, this is the perfect opportunity to be introduced to some new people.
