Owner outlines plans for S.F. soccer teamThere are so many options for entertainment in the San Francisco Bay Area market that it’s hard to think there is a void.[...] Nick Swinmurn, the founder of Zappos.com and owner of the Burlingame Dragons soccer team, says there is one and he hopes to fill it in a couple of years.Soccer fans who don’t want to drive to San Jose to watch the Earthquakes might enjoy going to a bayside stadium and supporting a San Francisco team.Meet the San Francisco Football Club, which has applied for a United Soccer League expansion franchise to kick off in the spring of 2019.Soccer is so popular, people just want a local product to project their passion on, and attendance is growing in leagues across the country.There is already a lower-division soccer team in San Francisco, the Deltas, who play in the North American Soccer League at Kezar.[...] the shiny stadium with great sight lines should be a better draw than Kezar, no offense to history buffs.USL officials toured the site last week, and seem likely to let the SFFC into the league pending stadium approval.“The USL continues to lead the next phase of growth in professional soccer across the United States,” league president Jack Edwards said.“The fun part is creating it,” said Swinmurn, whose team would play 20 home games in 2019 if accepted.

- Virgin Hotel to bring rooftop cocktails to SoMa
By Sarah Fritsche - Tuesday Feb 28, 2017
Compared to New York and Los Angeles, which boast dozens of rooftop bars, we basically have El Techo de Lolinda. While our city’s dearth of outdoor options can perhaps be blamed on our foggy bayside weather, if the lines at El Techo, especially on the weekends, are any indication, there is a demand for outdoor drinking spots with a view.
That’s why it’s interesting that Sir Richard Branson’s hospitality line, Virgin Hotels will throw its cap into the rooftop ring. As noted by Curbed SF, Virgin’s 196-room hotel, which is currently under construction at Fourth and Folsom streets, will offer a rooftop bar.
No word yet on what the bar will overlook, but considering its location hopefully drinkers will be able to get a glimpse of the greenery at nearby Yerba Buena Gardens and some downtown vistas. It’s slated to open summer 2017.
In the press release, Virgin also notes “multiple dining and drinking outlets” elsewhere in the hotel, including the brand’s standard restaurant, named the Commons Club.
This will be the Virgin’s second U.S. hotel. The first opened in Chicago in 2015. A Silicon Valley outpost is scheduled to open in 2019, along with several other locations around the country (New York, New Orleans, Nashville, Dallas and Palm Springs) over the next few years.
