The Crunchies has a bigger, grander home this year at the Davies Symphony Hall with the after party to immediately follow at the same venue. The Davies is home to the world renowned San Francisco Symphony, now its 100th year.  The Davies Symphony Hall is one of the world’s most modern and beautiful acoustic venues.  In addition to the San Francisco Symphony’s infamous musical premieres, the Davies has hosted benefit concerts and readings with Sting, Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Jack Nicholson, Annette Benning, Bruce Willis and Sean Penn.  The Davies Symphony Hall has sweeping views of San Francisco City Hall and the War Memorial Opera House. The curved, floor to ceiling glass lobby makes a gorgeous setting for the 5th Annual Crunchies.
