SF VIP Pride Party gets an A

SF Pride VIP Party 2014

So I’ve been meaning to pay a visit to the San Francisco VIP Pride Party at City Hall for a few years now.  I did this year as a part of my Pride festivities and I was really impressed and had a great time.  The VIP Party gets a big thumbs up from me and a grade of A for sure.
