Exploratorium Adult Night & Bay Bridge Light Show Afterwards

I have yet to visit the Exploratorium's new home on Pier 15 which is conveniently located by Pier 14 with the best view for the recently installed computerized Bay Bridge light show!

The Exploratorium is open to adults only, Thursday nights from 6PM until 10PM, and serves cocktails.

Advance ticket purchase 15.00 is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED according to the website:

https://transact.exploratorium.edu/e-commerce/ItemList.aspx?node_id=189496&d=7/25/2013

Currently there are tickets available.

My plan is to meet up in the lobby at 7 PM for introductions.  This is an "individual-driven" event so you can explore the exhibits on your own or with others, but I'd like to plan to meet for drinks anytime between 8:30 and 9 PM and end with viewing the Bay Bridge Lights at 9:00 PM from the "best seat in the house," Pier 14.  San Francisco summers are notoriously cool, so bring a warm jacket!

If you can't make it on time, no problem.  If you want to come earlier, doors open at 6 PM. Just text me with an update or leave a message here.

The restaurants are open according to an e-mail correspondence.

    Franny,
    Dineke, her friend and I are running late. We might not show up at 7 sharp. But we will let you know when we are in and come to find you. What kind dress do you wear? It will be easy for us to recon you. Jason

    Maggie, Dineke,
    It seems we got 2.5 votes for Plant Café. I guest it is the choice. I will come to Plant Café between 5:30 ~ 6:00. I am 5'-11" (180 cm) short hair Asian guy. Shouldn't be hard to find me there :-) See you Tomorrow!

    Hi Maggie, Dineke, and Jason, and all~ the Exploratorium's two restaurants, Seaglass and Seismic Joint Cafe are both open Thursday night, so there's that option, which I might do since it's convenient. I'm going to try and arrive at 6pm. I'll post a message here about my whereabouts around that time and still meet everyone at 7pm as planned.

      I quickly checked the menus of both Sea Glass n Seismic Joint. It seems Sea Glass is more a dine in venue with more veggie choices on the menu. All three locations: Plant Cafe, Sea Glass, Seismic Joint are good for me. So I will leave the decision to ladies :-)

      Thanks for checking Jason! Still find the first choice very nice (Plant cafe), but maybe a restaurant in the museum (Seaglass?) is more practical? Anyway, see you Thursday!

    It is a great experience! I highly recommend this! Cannot compare to the old location, but I bet they are getting more visitors after moving it to Embarcadero.

      Hi Maggie, I'd like to give you the honor of coordinating the dinner! I won't be able to make it after work, coming from the East Bay/BART/walking, etc., but please enjoy together and I'll meet you guys as planned. Thank you! I'll definitely keep that in mind, though, for the future!
