We were more than thrilled to have the research vessel the Macrocystis est Maximus (means Giant Kelp) captained by Chris Wade cruise into one of our slips for the day. The California Science Center in Los Angeles holds some of the most important science displays and exhibits, each one more fascinating than the next. I personally am a huge fan, so when they approached me about holding their Foundation Meeting here, I was ecstatic.
They had their meeting and power point in our Fireside/ Epicurean room where you have a spectacular view of the Marina while the presentation is going on! That is quite a perk.... Following their meeting, guests were greeted by smiling servers with trays of champagne as well as Chef Hector's yummy hors d' oeuvres as they made their way to the dock to see what sea-life the ship had picked up right off the Palos Verdes Peninsula that morning. (Don't try this yourself: they are very hard to keep alive in captivity and the science center vessel and their new home back at the center is state of the art!)
