The McCall Lounge Areas: 
The corners of each of the two hangars will feature premium hospitality lounges: Various foods and beverages will be served throughout the evening to engage each guest in a variety of California specialties.  Guests will enjoy a movable feast as they stroll throughout the event.  Starting the soiree with French cuisine inspired by regional organic flavors, moving to sushi, oysters and caviar thus showering the entry to the event and each hangar in cold bites from local culinary artisans with a uniquely epicurean style.  As guests make their way to the back of the hangars, they will delight in a plethora of comfort foods: Grilled artisan cheese sandwiches dipped in farm-fresh tomato soup, panini sandwiches hot off the grill filled with local organic faire, pulled-pork complimented by melted cheese, and beef sliders from the best butcher shop in town, and a seafood medley that gives new definition to the “catch of the day”.
