The quarterly mixer brings together hundreds of SF Travel Partners for an evening of socializing and networking, and at this last event, the venue was definitely the highlight.

With the grand opening slated for April 17th, SF Travel Partners were afforded the opportunity to preview the Exploratorium’s new $300 million 330,000 square foot waterfront location on the Embarcadero.  The new location offers 150 brand new exhibits, a glass-clad observatory and open air terrace with spectacular views of the Bay Bridge lights.

The food was equally spectacular, with gourmet bites and tastings provided by top-notch SF caterers like La Bonne Cuisine, McCalls, Paula LeDuc, Taste and of course, the in-house provider, Curiosity Catering, just to name a few. Spirits and libations flowed all night, courtesy of Bartenders Unlimited, Blackbird Vineyards, Castello di Amoroso, Duckhorn, Raymond Vineyards, Hess Collection, and several more.

Froomz very own Christina Dunham and Courtney McQuade were on hand as SF Travel Ambassadors, welcoming guests as they arrived, along with friends from Events by Collette and Vino Venture SF. Enjoy some of these highlights, and check out even more photos on our Facebook page!
