Next History Walkabout with Gary Holloway: Parnassus Heights Tour and Tea

Parnassus Heights Tour and Tea (San Francisco) History Walkabout with Gary Holloway


Sunday Dec. 12th from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Walk begins at 11:30 a.m. each day, followed by tea service at 1:30 p.m.)

Named for the 8,000 ft. high peak in southern Greece, sacred Apollo and the Muses, this is the home of University of California’s first school of Medicine, Dentistry, and Psychiatry, and the second campus of the UC system. Employing thousands of people in the medical arts, this campus on the slopes of Mt. Sutro is a landmark of the City. On this walk, which will end with our holiday tea, we’ll head up the slope to the Heights via a swift lift, and walkabout the public areas of the campus, seeing a great statue of Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine. Following this, we’ll thread our way downhill through the Inner Sunset neighborhood to find our sumptuous Holiday Tea awaiting us at one of our favorite places, the Secret Garden Tea House, located on Lincoln Way, between 8th and 9th Avenues. Our Holiday repast will consist of various balck and herbal teas, plus fresh baked scones, savories, festive sandwiches and Christmas cider or egg nog! Walk is easy.
Prices: $75 for CHS members $ 95 for non-members
