July Issue – Live Music, Mountain Biking, America's Cup


With the month of July approaching, we here at Marin Magazine are celebrating our biggest issue ever! Considering last July was one of our smallest on record, we were happy (though stretched a bit thin) to do the extra work to create over 200 pages of editorial and adverstisments. 

Enough about us, here’s what you might enjoy …

Ride bikes? Have you ever heard of a flow trail? Think bobsled course made out of packed dirt. Then think about flowing down the course on your bike. Videographer Sean Cope and writer Nate Seltenrich braved a 45-minute hike to show us how it’s done in Going With The Flow.   

Live music? Carol Pott, a musician herself examines the latest in live music here in Marin County. She’ll tell you what to expect at the newest venues and who is most likely to appear on stage in The Sound of Music.  

Local baseball? The folks at the Pacifics Baseball team in San Rafael want you to feel like you’ve stepped back into the 50s when you show up to Albert Park for one of their games. Get to know GM Mike Shapiro in this month’s Q&A

And to boost our pages this issue, our wealth manager’s section has an excellent article written by Carrie Kirby, a writer new to us, along with profiles of wealth managers. I am now inspired to create some wealth to manage!  

Jim Wood discusses the SchoolsRule program, a coalition to improve the funding for all Marin’s public schools. Will it work? Read on and let us know what you think.

In our Destinations department we cover a cable (wakeboard) park in Sacramento, Staycation ideas (like taking a boat to watch the baseball game). And Eric Gladstone introduces us to the history, luxury and recreational opportunities of Champagne France. 

And then … drum roll … the ultimate summer event guide, which focuses on all things Americas Cup.  For legal reasons we couldn’t use the words America’s Cup in the title – hence it’s called Race for the Cup! To kick off the issue, and summer of sailing we had a ‘sailing’ star-studded event at Cavallo Point, check our Facebook page for photos!

We hope you enjoy the issue –and as always – we appreciate feedback!
