Gilt City SF :: Tastemaker Rue


Alright, today’s post is going to be a pretty exciting one especially for those who are always on the hunt for a good deal! I was informed by Gilt City that San Francisco will be among the first of its 10 markets to launch a new program, Gilt City Tastemakers, to celebrate its one year anniversary in the market.  The inaugural ambassadors of the new Gilt City Tastemakers program are Rue Magazine co-founders Anne Sage and Crystal Gentilello; which both I have met personally. Coincidentally, I will be attending their party tonight at H.D. Buttercup celebrating their wonderful S.F. based shelter magazine’s 1st anniversary! I’m so excited, what should I wear?

In their role as Gilt City Tastemakers, Anne and Crystal will serve as a sounding board for Gilt City San Francisco, working one on one with Gilt’s local curators to develop outstanding offers in the Bay Area that reflect their love and knowledge of all things SF.  Beginning tomorrow, Gilt City will roll out Rue magazine’s personally curated slate of experiences featuring some of their favorite restaurants, spas, wine bars and more. Rest assured, you’ll be getting some very exquisite deals only on Gilt City SF!

Wanna have a peek on what’s to come? Well, thanks to Gilt City, I am able to share these amazing deals in advance with my readers so that you can all be first in line to purchase them! Sounds crazy? Trust me, there are times when Gilt City deals are so hot that you have to get on waitlist for it I’m not even joking! So anyway, if you’re a Gilt City member, perfect! If not, be sure to sign up with them now so you don’t miss a thing! I’ve already got my eyes set on my top 5 – Jen Darling Handbags, Cafe des Amis, Blue Bottle Coffee, Spa at the Fairmont, and Yo Gabba Gabba – I have to, I’m a mother :)
