Last month The Fort Mason Center, in partnership with the National Park Service, was excited to celebrate the reopening of Pier 2 after more than a year-long “rehabilitation.” The $21 million restoration provided updates to preserve part of the City’s historic waterfront, as well as integrated the park’s second largest solar power system supported by the Silicon Valley-based SunPower Corporation.  These renovations were made possible by generous gifts from the Herbst Foundation, Columbia Foundation, the Henry Mayo Newhall Foundation, the Center’s board of trustees, along with many individual donors.

Petite TacosMcCalls was overjoyed to cater the opening night event for this revamped space. The 103-year-old pier celebrated with 250 guests that mingled and marveled over the 35,000 sq. ft. venue – a site with a capacity for up to 3,000 people – while enjoying an assortment of mouthwatering appetizers, including a crowd favorite of Petite Tacos with Tomatillo Chicken and Cilantro Crema. A stunning acrobatic performance welcomed attendees as they sat down for dinner. The supper ended sweetly with a dessert of Lambrusco Poached Pears, Mascarpone Crème, Biscotti and Zabaglione Mocha Gelato, all topped with a Chocolate Raspberry Cigarette and Hazelnuts.
