July 9: Urban Beekeeping: An Overview
Marc Johnson, Beekeepers Education Program
Join Sixty Plus for a talk with a San Francisco Beekeepers Association expert to learn all about bees and beekeeping. This is increasingly important as we are looking for ways to help sustain and grow the Bee population for years to come. Marc will bring samples of equipment, observation hives, frames, combs and maybe even honey for tasting!
Marc Johnson has been keeping honeybees for five years. Currently he and his partner have about a dozen hives in and around Western San Francisco. Marc serves on the Board of the San Francisco Beekeeping Association and volunteers time for beekeeping education as well as fostering better urban beekeeping.
July 23: Shakespeare in Disguise Roberta D'Alois
Roberta D’Alois - Playwright, Performer, Artistic Director, and teacher
Most of us are probably aware that West Side Story is a version of “Romeo and Juliet” But did you know that the television show “Empire” is based on “King Lear” as is the book and movie “One Thousand Acres”? And there is even a Bollywood version of “Romeo and Juliet” with a happy ending! In this presentation we will watch a couple of clips and have a brief discussion of all the ways it is possible to adapt even a well-known text into something unrecognizable and still interesting.
Roberta D’Alois is a playwright, performer and artistic director of Jump! Theatre, whose mission is to produce plays based on authentic stories of mental illness. She has an MFA from SF State in Creative Writing, taught Shakespeare to eight-year-olds and currently teaches writing at SF State and USF as well as classes for OLLI-SFSU.
These programs will be held in Knuth Hall in the Creative Arts Building. They start at 1:00 with a short business meeting which is followed directly by the program. Light refreshments will be offered afterwards in Room 154 which is directly across the hallway from Knuth Hall.
There is no shuttle during the summer months but parking on campus and nearby is available since there on few classes or students on campus.
Betty Lou's Seafood & Grill
318 Columbus Ave. at Grant Avenue
Located in the heart of North Beach, this casual establishment serves up the kind of old-school seafood for which this city is known. The star attraction here is the cioppino - with clam chowder and fried calamari running a close second! They also offer chicken dishes and a stellar bone-in ribeye steak.
