Location Details:
SFO - George Schultz - Delancey Street - Pebble Beach
July 28 - British Prime Minister Tony Blair is coming to San Francisco today as part of a five-day trip through California.

Blair is scheduled to land at SFO this evening at 5:00.

After he gets settled in, the prime minister is expected to have dinner at the Russian Hill home of former Secretary of State George Shultz tomorrow.

Dinner might be tonight according to Guardian:
On his way from the cool north to the sweaty south, Blair will meet Californian aristocrats such as the Schultz family - George was big in the Reagan era - who are hosting a reception for him in San Francisco on Friday, and meet kingmakers like his old friend Rupert Murdoch as he addresses the annual News International shin-dig on Sunday at the golfer's paradise of Pebble Beach. On Monday he'll meet Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa at the sumptuously phoney Getty Villa, where he can learn about the 12 Labours of Herakles - which makes the battle against Clause 4 look like a cakewalk. And he may even get a glimpse of Arnold, as Schwarzenegger and Blair both attend a forum on the environment on Tuesday.,,1832306,00.html

On Sunday, Blair is scheduled to join Mayor Gavin Newsom in a tour of the Delancey Street Foundation -- the San Francisco-based drug and substance abuse program.

Then he'll have lunch with some area CEOs, including John Chambers of Cisco Systems and Mark Hurd of Hewlett-Packard.

One Monday, Blair will go on a tour of Genentech. Then he'll travel to Long Beach for a meeting with Governor Schwarzenegger.,,329540697-103681,00.html

According to a copy of the agenda leaked to the Los Angeles Times, Mr Murdoch will make some opening remarks on Sunday evening before the Californian governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, addresses the ranks of executives. Tony Blair will then take the podium.

U2's Bono will deliver a keynote address entitled The Power of One, former US vice-president Al Gore will talk about climate change, and the Israeli vice-premier, Shimon Peres, will appear on a panel named Islam and the West.
