NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM
NAPHN17 organizers have purchased a block booking of tickets to visit San Francisco’s famous Exploratorium Science museum. Thursday evenings are reserved for adults only, and appropriate beverages are served at cocktail bars placed between exhibits.

THE DISTILLERY DINNER
We’ve reserved a unique venue for our less-formal conference dinner. Located just ten minutes from the hotel, at the end of Alameda Island, overlooking the Bay Bridge, San Francisco and the iconic Oakland Docks, the views will take your breath away! Then we’ll add artisanal vodka tasting from this award-winning distillery. Hangar One uses unique flavors of Northern California to infuse their prize-winning spirits. Add a full menu that showcases California’s rich seasonal agricultural bounty and this evening is sure to be one to remember. (Tix include food & beverages, plus return shuttle to the conference hotel at 11pm.)
