From our friends @onlyinsf and @sfgov
Monday night, San Francisco was a shining a light—literally—on the importance of its hospitality industry.

A number of buildings—including City Hall, The Moscone Center, @mosconecenter Coit Tower, @coittowersf Chase Center @chase_center , Oracle Park @oraclepark and SFO, @flysfo as well as other attractions and many of our hotels—are lit up purple, the official color of hospitality. This public recognition of the impact that our industry has on San Francisco, and of the impact that the coronavirus pandemic has had on our industry, is a welcome reminder to all of the people who make the San Francisco visitor experience so special that they and their work are valued. .

Visit our penguin friends at the San Francisco Zoo

Today was the annual Penguin Roundup! Keepers and vet staff gave our Magellanic penguin colony their annual exam which includes a physical exam, weight & body score, West Nile vaccination, nail triming, beak coping, microchip confirmation and band number confirmation. The time of year is chosen strategically based on their natural history as they are well conditioned and the least stressed at this time of year. Currently, we have 50 Magellanic penguins ranging from 8 months to 34-years-old. Magellanics are medium sized penguins ranging from 3.5 to 7kgs and have incredibly powerful bites and wing slaps. Handling penguins is a skill honed over time, so kudos to our team who showed great determination and care!
