Sunset Cruise on The Adventuress Catamaran
Dinner: Fajita bar, beer & wine hosted aboard
Step out of the hotel and onto a private catamaran. Members will enjoy the fresh ocean breeze as the catamaran sails the San Diego Bay. While sailing, members will see the rugged cliffs and historic lighthouses of Point Loma, the stunning skyline of Downtown, the charming Seaport Village, historic ships at the Maritime Museum, the stunning Coronado Bridge and the famous Hotel Del Coronado. And of course, keep your eyes out for our local marine life: sea lions, dolphins, and occasionally a whale. The adventure will include onboard libations and a fajita bar to make things festive!
Note, this session will start earlier than other adventures, with the group leaving from the hotel lobby at 4:00pm.
Coffee Cupping with Nostalgia
Dinner: Chilanga Mexican Food, onsite
For a world-class coffee experience that will get your innovative java juices flowing *and* tug at your heartstrings, spend your evening with Nostalgia. Introduced to us by our very own CG moderator and founder of Ad Astra Ventures, Vidya Dinamani, this is an adventure that can’t be missed.
Not only does the award-winning team at Nostalgia, and its founder, Taylor Field, offer incredible coffee, they also care deeply about people, and their impact on the industry.
From flourishing salaries, putting women in positions of power, and having the most diverse team possible, to fundamentally changing how coffee is bought and giving 5% of revenue back to producers, Nostalgia seeks to always be kind and ethical.
Delicious coffee? Check. Innovation (*think coffee teabags*)? Check. A big-hearted team? Check, check, check. It’s the perfect blend!

‘SweatShop overlord’ at the La Jolla Playhouse
On Day 3 of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kristina Wong began sewing masks out of old bedsheets and bra straps on her Hello Kitty sewing machine. Before long, she was leading the Auntie Sewing Squad, a work-from-home sweatshop of hundreds of volunteers—including children and her own mother—to fix the U.S. public health care system while in quarantine. It was a feminist care utopia forming in the midst of crisis. Or was it a mutual aid doomsday cult? With hilarity and boundless generosity, she invites the audience in on her work building community in isolation, while reflecting on what we’d been through and imagining what we wanted to become.
