Are you a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered (or even, if softball has taught us anything this week, straight) and in need of a new job? a few choice contacts? a boozy brunch? Well then, head over to the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts on Saturday morning for an other installment of dot429's brunch series that brings Bay Area professionals together to network in a setting that doesn't involve a room at Beck's Motorlodge or that cozy bathroom at Aunt Charlie's Lounge.

During Saturday's brunch? Equality California will introduce local LGBT supportive candidates and politicians with expected wonk conversation. To help the political medicine go down, CAV Executive Chef John Maher will be there serving bellinis (with bacon cured salmon, caviar, creme fraiche & toasted bagel, and ice cream & crispy cream cheese) and more. And, seeing as how your SFist Editor is a founding member of SF dot429, you can simply show up just to gawk as we slowly descend into a mid-afternoon blackout via the free flowing vodka. (We kid. But probably not.)
