I had hoped that this photo from the stylish Moss Room restaurant in the new California Academy of Science would be accompanied by actual photos of the museum itself. On Saturday night, we had a really yummy dinner at the Moss Room...joined by friends Chris, Brad, and Brian...as an early birthday present for Jeff. This intimate room is in the lower level of the museum, with a grand two-story wall covered with living plants.
The museum is only open until 5pm, so Jeff and I planned to return Sunday to visit this striking new building, with its buzz-generating green roof, walk-through aquarium, and high-tech planetarium. The museum opened in October, and lines to get in are notoriously long. Sunday was no exception. One glance at the line of families snaking along the Golden Gate Park Music Concourse was enough to send us on our way.
So, for now, you just get a photo of the mossy restaurant wall :)
