Tonic Nightlife Group was founded in 2008 with a simple philosophy - Be. More. Fun.

Starting with Tonic, a bar in San Francisco's Russian Hill, TNG grew to operate as many as eleven neighborhood bars in San Francisco and Berkeley, a full-service events and Beverage Catering operation, and County Line Ranch, a music festival grounds in Northern California, which hosts the Lumberstruck and Northern Nights music festivals. 

As long as the Bay Area continues to be the most beautiful, exciting, and innovative place on the planet, Tonic Nightlife Group will be there, working tirelessly to make sure it is "more fun."

Sam has brought with her a tenacious passion for event management as well as an essential set of skills acquired from her previous experience at MKTG, THA - Allied, and Alice @ 97.3.  Her knowledge and dedication have continued to demonstrate her efficiency towards balancing the key role of organization and team management.
