Our Own Batty Masetto gently prods, “The first cycle of the San Francisco Ring starts Tuesday, and time’s running out for those who haven’t checked in yet to share in the Parterre festivities. A dazzling array of Parterrians (pictured) have signed up already, so you won’t’ want to miss out on the meet-ups at the performances and the festive brunches.

“A reconfirmation went out yesterday to everyone I have on my list. So if you haven’t heard back from me, please check with me. And for you slowpokes who still haven’t RSVP’d, there’s still time. If you don’t have my email address already, you can use this form.”
