Send Tony Winnicker off in style as he prepares for role of lifetime: a beach bum 

It’s unlikely to be as entertaining as Chris Daly’s roast nor as star-studded as Gavin Newsom’s Holiday Open House in City Hall but if you’re looking to hang out with drinking politicos, Tony Winnicker’s Send Off Party might be your best bet this week.

The Newsom press secretary headed for the door shortly after learning his new boss would be Ed Lee, who in his first four weeks in office has yet to send out as many press releases as Newsom did in a single day -- six in as many hours, to be exact -- at the end of his mayoral term.

Winnicker is leaving his post and has chosen to spend some time showing off his biceps on a beach in Costa Rica, according to a press release issued by the Mayor’s Office of Communication. The release states that Winnicker is leaving “for his new role in Costa Rica as a permanent beach bum.”

Winnicker’s send off party will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday at Medjool Restaurant in the Mission. If you’re wondering why you would want to go to the event, the press release has just the answer for you: “Why not?”
