Please enjoy our very crude driving map for people coming from San Francisco. Head north on Highway 101, cross the Golden Gate Bridge, and you're off. (Fun fact: Mike Locke once studied cartography, and he's forgotten all of it!)
Don is: a transplanted New Yorker, cigar aficionado, retired NYPD lieutenant and the friend attending the wedding that I've known the longest (almost 30 years!)
Scott is: the man who has seen it all and still stuck around. We became friends while we were both living in Washington, D.C.
John is: the friend that feels like I've known forever. A brother in spirit. We met in Minneapolis .
Ah, Marlene. Dearest colleague from my formative years in D.C. Fellow alum of political advocacy, organizing for nearly-lost causes and 15 cent wings at the Big Hunt.
Jill is a dear classmate from grad school who propped me up for much of my time in DC. She was once the Posh Spice to my David Beckham.
John is a friend going back to my high school and college days, who has let me sleep on his couch far too many times to count.
Marc is my brother (not biological, but close enough).
Jonny is a good friend I got to know in my early 20s who turned me on most of my cultural obsessions over the years.
Our officiant Derek is the kind of spark that you're lucky to have come zooming through your life once. We're delighted to have him come splash in from Italy for us.
We'll be having 'swing-by and say hi' cocktails from 3-6pm on the roof of the Proper Hotel at 7th and Market. (The entrance is at 45 McAllister St, around the corner.) No RSVP required, but feel free to let us know if you plan to come. All 21+ are welcome!
A smaller gathering for family, the wedding party, and far-flung friends.
Please RSVP to Father of the Groom Steve Locke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
