Seattle’s Nautical By Nature EE @ Salty’s At Redondo Beach

Yelp Seattle's Elite Squad enjoyed a whirlwind trip at Salty's at Redondo Beach recently. The space was literally decked out with an amazing Nautical theme for a big group of lucky guests. Wearing their own sailor caps and captain's uniforms, the Salty's staff graciously handed each guest a specially made Salty's passport before they boarded the "boat" for the evening. With gorgeous decks that wrap around the beachfront restaurant, guests were treated to a lovely outdoor dinner over The Sound. But that's not all!

The passports required each guest visit one of nearly a dozen stations set up across two piers on the water. With stops to check out like passport photos, Jamaican steel drums, touching sealife at the aquarium (and meeting Squirt the octopus), it was a night chock-filled with awesome activities. And we haven't event gotten to the food and drink yet!

Other stops on the tour included popping by the Bacardi drinks station, a visit with killer keg wine companyProletariat and beer from Deschutes BrewingJust to name a few!

And if that wasn't enough, the food was just as plentiful! From steak sandwiches to crab legs, lobster mac n cheese, shrimp cocktails, fresh veggies, smoked salmon, Gaspacho, and more.

After an hour of absolutely incredible eats, the group took off on yet another adventure across the pier to visit more sponsors and have more fun at the Marine Science And Technology Center. With a gorgeous party both inside and outside, there were so many sights to see here. This enormous event space allowed guests to "live Yelp" from a series of fun whiteboards. And tables were set to the nines by Creative Coverings. But who could miss it – Above the main entrance was a massive whale skeleton for everyone to 'oooh' and 'aaah' at. 

PicMonkey Collage4With time to pet some sea creatures, learn about sealife native to The Sound, take a green-screen underwater photo with 1000 Words Photo Booth, and enjoy a dessert bar with Nauti chocolate milk, chocolate dipped fruits, creme brulee and even a sea creature theme candy selection, passport stamps were handed out left and right! Not one station was to be missed on this trip. A big thanks to our friends and sponsors!
