hat was the theme and your plan for the Giants dinner at the museum?

The event was a celebration of baseball throughout the years, with speaker Dave Dravecky. It was held in the baseball Museum in San Francisco, so I planned the buffet around the ideas of baseball food, and what we enjoy eating at a game. The guests were passed appetizers with drinks and then wandered around looking at exhibits, while enjoying the buffet.

How was the food received by your customers?

The preparations my staff and I made to go the extra mile was worth it. I made sure my guests were full immersed in the baseball experience of a game, and the food has a large impact on this.
