SPUR Member Party


Kick off the summer and support SPUR at the annual SPUR Member Party tonight, Thursday, June 14, from 5-10 p.m.

As we celebrate our third year in the Urban Center, we plan to once again bring our members one of the city’s most festive events, taking place throughout the SPUR Urban Center and in neighboring Annie Alley. SPUR is located at 654 Mission Street in between New Montgomery and 3rd Street in SOMA.

Come early from 5-7 p.m. to enjoy free food from our eclectic culinary line up including Show Dogs, El Buen Comer, Peter's Kettle Corn and Rice Paper Scissors. Gourmet food trucks will arrive at 7 p.m. to keep the party going (cash and card accepted). Stay late to catch surprise performances!

Make sure to stop by the SHN table for a chance to win two tickets to see Green Day's American Idiot, the Broadway musical!
