A night at The Tech
We recently did an event for a large tech company here in the Silicon Valley, and what better place to host it, but our very own Tech Museum in San Jose.
The Tech Museum of Innovation is a family-friendly interactive science and technology center located in the heart of downtown San Jose. It has become a landmark for visitors seeking a glimpse of the most inventive place on Earth — Silicon Valley.
Not only are we so lucky to have such an amazing resource in our area, but the fact that we can use it as a venue is AMAZING! Check out some of our highlights of the event.
The Tech’s large floor plan is adaptable, providing space for everything from an intimate seated dinner to a large corporate reception. They have interactive exhibits providing an exciting, unique backdrop and built-in entertainment that will make your event an affair to remember. Bonus: The Hackworth IMAX Dome Theater is also available as a one-of-a-kind addition. Give Handheld Catering a call and experience our full service catering services for your next corporate event.
The Tech’s exhibits are never the same twice! So why not make it an annual event. Too far to drive? The Tech is within walking distance of The Fairmont, Hyatt Place, Marriott and Hilton hotels.
For our last event, we started off the night on the upper level where the guests enjoyed 3 signature cocktails for the night.
MCCing Double Aged Bourbon, Lemonade and Iced Tea
Markowitz Mule: Moscow Mules in Classic Copper Cups
RWBees Knees: Non Alcoholic Pear Sparkler with Pear and Lemon Juice, Honey,
Sugar, Club Soda, Dash of Nutmeg, Rosemary Branch Stir Stick
To go along with the drinks, our chefs served 4 different appetizers cooked fresh from our pop up kitchen downstairs. The appetizers were out of this world!
Polenta Tonnato: Fried Polenta Cakes, Tuna, Scallions, Capers, Lemon Aioli,
Parsley, Shredded Egg
Petite Vegetarian Spring Rolls with Spicy Mae Ploy Sauce
Butternut Squash Risotto Cakes with Sage and Lemon Aioli
Mini Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Skewers with Pineapple
The dinner reception was then moved to the lower floor where the guest enjoyed multiple station buffet.
The stations consisted of 5 full stations with 3 to 4 options per table.
A fresh station where the Chinese chicken salad was the star.
The Mexican Station that had the best street tacos you can ask for.
The Indian Station with the Chicken Tikka Masala and fresh Naan blew people away.
The Classics was by far a crowd pleaser, we could not pick between the Seared Filet of Salmon with a Soft Miso Glaze on a bed of Seaweed or the New York Steak that was carved right in front of you.
And to finish with a bang, the Sweet Bite Station that had the creamiest Panna Cotta!
Our team know how to make a menu and our chefs know how to execute it to the max.
After the meal, the guest dance for the remainder of the night.
