San Francisco events in February 2019 include Valentine’s Day Cruise, Hamilton at the Orpheum Theater, Golden State Warriors basketball games, and the Chronicle Wine Tasting event. This is also the month for the Chinese New Year’s Parade & Festival, the SF Writer’s Conference, and the Indie Film Festival.
Valentine’s Day Sunset Cruise
A very romantic and memorable way to treat your honey on Valentine’s Day is by taking a sunset cruise around the SF Bay. This 3-hour cruise leaves Pier 40 around 4:30pm and returns around 7 or 7:30pm on Thursday, February 14.
You will cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset and raise your glass of champagne for a toast. The cruise also includes tasty appetizers as well as an assortment of beer, white wine, and champagne (for those over 21). You can also enjoy soda and water.
Tickets start at $95 per person (plus booking fees)
Hamilton at the Orpheum Theater
Dates: 2/12 – 9/8 One of the biggest San Francisco events in February is the Broadway hit Hamilton.
It’s the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of our founding fathers. In this musical, his story is told through song and rap with a vibrant cast of characters.
It’s won dozens of awards including the Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book of a Musical. It also won the Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album and many others.
This is a hot ticket, so make sure to pick up yours today.
Golden State Warriors Basketball
Dates: 2/2, 2/6, 2/10, 2/12, 2/21, & 2/23 You’ll find Warriors pride all over the SF Bay Area in support of the team that became last year’s NBA Champions again.
Join in on the hype at one of the home games this month at the Oakland Coliseum. Watch them take on teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers, San Antonio Spurs, and the Houston Rockets.
This is one of the San Francisco events in February you do not want to miss!
Chronicle Wine Tasting
Date: Saturday, 2/16 Wine lovers must not miss this wonderful opportunity!
The Chronicle Wine Competition Public Tasting Event is the largest event in the world celebrating American varieties of wine.
Spend this Saturday afternoon at the Fort Mason Center sampling the best wines in over 100 categories (selected from more than 5,000 submissions!).
Along with your wine samples, you’ll have the chance to try savory meats, exotic oils, handcrafted cheeses, and amazing desserts.
Chinese New Year Parade & Festival
Dates: 2/23 (Parade), 2/2 – 3/3 (All Events) The Chinese New Year celebration in San Francisco is a long running tradition that boasts one of the biggest parades of its kind in the world.
Held in the vibrant Chinatown community, the festivities include lion dancers, giant dragons, traditional drums and firecrackers, colorful decorations, and much more.
In addition to the parade, you’ll find the Miss Chinatown USA pageant, a flower market, a 10K run, and other activities for several weeks.
SF Writer’s Conference
Dates: 2/14 – 2/17 This is one of the San Francisco events in February that is a special treat for those who love writing–the 16th Annual Writers Conference.
Seek advice from over 100 bestselling authors, literary agents, editors, and publishers from major publishing sources, as well as experts on self-publishing, book promotion, social media, and more.
The keynote speeches, classes, and networking events all take place at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero hotel over these four days. Also look out for after-hours open mics, poetry happenings, and pitch contests.
SF Indie Fest
Dates: 1/31 – 2/14 If you get tired of Hollywood blockbuster movies and appreciate a good independent film, these first two weeks of February in San Francisco are a real treat.
The annual SF Indie Fest, now in its 21st year, celebrates independent, alternative films and filmmakers.
During these two weeks, you’ll have the chance to watch nearly 80 original works, mostly screened at the Brava Theater and the Roxie Theater in SF.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Most units have completed the mandatory dryer vent cleaning. Any remaining units must be cleaned by February 19, 2019. You will receive notice from Action if you are not on the list of completed units.
The deck resurfacing work is approximately 90% complete. The remaining work should be done in two weeks, depending on weather.
We continue to have an open Board seat to be filled by an owner who wishes to give back to our community. This appointed position will be held until the 2020 Board elections. If you want to learn more, please contact any current Board member.
The Board has signed the gutter cleaning contract with Spurgeon Painting to clean our rain gutters. Spurgeon is the same company that has done this work for the past few years. They will give us two weeks’ notice before starting so we can let you know.
Several owners have requested that the board consider having Gardner’s Guild discontinue the use of Rodeo, a chemical used by Gardner’s Guild to control weeds. Rodeo contains glyphosate, a controversial chemical also used in Roundup. Lois MacLean has volunteered to chair an ad hoc committee to find out more from local agencies who have stopped using Rodeo or Roundup. Gardner’s Guild has recommended we continue their use because alternative weed abatement would be significantly more expensive.
Property Insurance Audit
Travelers Insurance, the company that provides insurance for our property, informed us of two concerns we need to address.
1. Our chimneys should be inspected yearly and cleaned if necessary. The board is seeking proposals from chimney cleaning services to inspect all chimneys. If cleaning is required, the owner is responsible for having it done.
2. Mill Valley code 308.1.4 prohibits the use of open flame barbecues on combustible balconies or within 10 feet of combustible construction. There are exceptions for one- and two-family dwellings, balconies and decks having an automatic sprinkler system, and LP-gas cooking with a nominal 1-pound LP gas capacity. Unfortunately, the first two exceptions do not apply at Sunrise Pointe. The insurance company has asked that we modify our governing documents accordingly.
2019 Financial Packet

Thank you for your continued support!
Although the abundance of rain is great for the environment, it’s proven challenging for the community. Here’s what you need to know if you find yourself a victim of a leak event.Call the Community Care Team at Action Property Management: 800.400.2284
A Community Care Team (CCT) representative is available 24/7 to address your concerns. The CCT will dispatch a vendor to respond to the emergency. There’s often a delay of up to a couple hours from when the first call is made to the time the vendor can mobilize its resources to get a crew onsite, so it’s important to do what you can to mitigate any immediate damage to the inside of your unit. Hardwood floors should be towel dried as soon as possible to prevent buckling and reduce the chance of slip and fall. If possible, place a bucket under the source of the leak to collect the water. If the leak is near a common wall that is shared with your neighbor, check on them to make sure they’re aware of the leak so that it can be reported to the CCT team and subsequently the responding vendor.
