The Pinckard Salon

The Pinckard Salon was a series of invitational parties put on by Tom and Terri Pinckard in the late 1960s and early 70s. The parties were more like social events, as the Pinckards would invite a celebrity in SF or a related field that could be lionized. The parties were more than a bit exclusionary, which tended to rankle some of the fans in the area. Many of the LA fans thought these parties were thinly-disguised attempts at social climbing but others, who were on the invite list, thought that the non-invitees' criticism was not much more than sour grapes. They lasted until the Pinckards moved up the coast to Santa Maria.
