The Agenda: Lake Club at the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, Climate Day L.A., and South Coast Plaza’s Golden AnniversaryAuthor:Allison McCarthy
Host your next lakeside soiree at the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe’s Lake Club, an elegant waterfront lounge open to resort guests starting next week. Designed with floor-to-ceiling windows for an indoor-outdoor feel, the club offers alfresco dining, an outdoor spa and fire pit, and direct access to water sports. Granite and teak warm up the modern steel-and-glass building. Native plants like aspen, bearberry, and Jeffrey pine speak to the mountainside locale, while their linear planting complements the geometric architecture of the club. The indoor bar serves up signature cocktails like the Mai Tahoe Tai for adults and Shirley Temples or root beer floats for the kids.
When: Grand opening Tues. 6/27
Where: Tahoe Vista

Hollywood glamour is on full display for McGuire’s latest collection, which debuted at High Point Market in April. Arguably its most contemporary collection yet, the striking 18-piece lineup features bold materials like brass and woven leather. Using the core materials and specialized craftsmanship that have defined McGuire furniture for the past 70 years, the design team used their expertise to implement new shapes carved in rattan and bamboo, with accents like caning, brass bands, and shapely concrete. We’re obsessed with the Haybine Series—inspired by baling and binding techniques used by agriculturists—which stacks natural materials with wide bands of antique brass, and the Manau dining chair, featuring a bundled rattan frame in a sexy silhouette.
When: The collection will be on view in showrooms starting in August
Where: McGuire Showroom, 2 Henry Adams St., San Francisco
South Coast Plaza celebrates its golden anniversary this year, but before you use this as an excuse to go shopping, check out this exhibit, which pays tribute to the founding Segerstrom family. Before the luxury boutiques, the 3,500-acre swath of land was the site of the country’s largest lima bean crop, and this unique show shares the plaza’s storied heritage.
When: Through Mon. 7/31
Where: South Coast Plaza, 3333 Bristol St., Costa Mesa
Pace Gallery has always been known for its cutting-edge showcase of work, and this new exhibit is no exception. The group show includes work by such artists as Liu Jianhua, whose porcelain sculptures respond to Chinese culture and material history within the context of globalization, and Yin Xiuzhen, a leading female figure in contemporary Chinese art, whose work strives to preserve memory through second-hand objects in an exploration of modern issues of homogenization.
When: Opening reception: 4 – 7 p.m., Thurs. 6/22; Exhibit: Fri. 6/23–Sun. 8/20
Where: Pace Gallery, 229 Hamilton Ave., Palo Alto
