The Cafeteria 

WHAT IT IS:

This would be predominantly a food and drink venue with breakfast, lunch, and dinner service (or at least two out of three).  There would be indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor would include a rotating art exhibit and activities for adults and youth. Activities may be playground (Crissy field style), four square, corn hole, chess, etc…

 

Include drive-through or easy pick-up to order and go food. 

Include weekend, and evening music.

WHERE IT HAPPENS:

Inside and outside.

HOW IT WORKS:

Promote with signage and social media. Bring in local food vendors to support local entrepreneurship and food variety.

Port Welcome Center

WHAT IT IS:

The would be an open, central and public area with some educational exhibits and information on the port (maybe port timeline).  Bike rentals for port site seeing would be available for rent.  Site map with destinations and buildings posted and/or available for download.

 
Potentially the Port Admin office with adjacent office and meeting space available for community and port constituents to utilize.  The Welcome Center could also be staffed (or volunteer) to answer questions and help provide directions.  


Includes a small cafe for coffee and light snacks with indoor and outdoor seating.  Rotating exterior Art would be displayed.  Small kids play area. 


WHERE IT HAPPENS:
Inside the building with outdoor seating by cafe and art exhibit.  
Are there other entry points at the port for the Port Welcome Center?  


HOW IT WORKS:
Daily activity and location rather than event driven.  Signage and social media posting to get parties interested.

The Shipyard Club

WHAT IT IS:

Sometimes it’s a dance club driven by a lit DJ, other times you might see live music. Maybe a “Silent Disco” spills out into the parking lot! Or use it as a banquet hall for community or family events.

WHERE IT HAPPENS:

Right here, inside or outside the building. Maybe one weekend is for the Gen X crowd, but another is for Gen Y and Z, and another is for families and communities celebrating milestone moments like a quinceañera.

HOW IT WORKS:

Learn about it on social media. For entertainment evenings, a host would check guests in and provide wristbands. For a banquet hall, people could go online to rent the space for ceremonies, etc., and work with the Port to organize the event.
