San Francisco Mayor London Breed, a top candidate to succeed Kamla Harris in the US Senate, faces criticism for attending a dinner at the same luxury Napa restaurant that Newsom did, a day after the Governor's now-infamous mid-pandemic dinner, per the SF Chronicle.

Driving the news: Mayor Breed's snafu supper occurred on the night of Nov 7. at the same Michelin star Napa restaurant French Laundry to celebrate the 60'th birthday of socialite Gorretti Lo Lui.

  • Eight people, including the mayor, dined together at a small birthday party in the same type of room as Newsom did, SF Chronicle wrote.

  • At the time of dinner, Napa County was in the orange tier. Thus indoor dining was allowed with no limit on the number of households.

But, but, but:

Still, Mayor Breed's dinner at an affluent restaurant during a global pandemic that has killed thousands and closed restaurants statewide is another example of top California politicians not practicing what they preach.

  • Three days after eating at the French Laundry, Breed forbade indoor dining in San Francisco due to a Covid-19 surge.

  • Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl voted to ban outdoor dining at restaurants last week but hours later was dining outside at a restaurant in Santa Monica, per Fox 11

  • San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo has apologized after attending a Thanksgiving meal in violation of state COVID-19 rules, limiting the number of people and households at private gatherings, per KPIX 5.
