Rosie the Riveter & Lunch at Assemble
Wednesday, August 7

We Can Do it! Join Friendship Circle on this inspiring excursion—lift your spirits and relish in the values that energized the World War II home front and transformed American government, industry, society, and culture. Before heading to Rosie the Riveter, we will enjoy a delicious lunch at Assemble. With its unique setting, great food and perhaps the most beautiful and inclusive views in the entire Bay Area, Assemble Restaurant has been wowing its patrons since it opened in February of 2013. Lunch will include your choice of three entrees, beverages, dessert, tax and gratuity. Please choose one of the following entree options and include your selection when making your reservation:
GRILLED CREEKSTONE TRI-TIP - peppercorn rub shallot butter
SPINACH LASAGNA -  mozzarella and pesto ricotta
ATLANTIC SALMON - brushed in dill butter, wrapped in flakey dough

After lunch, we’ll walk across the street and spend a couple of hours visiting Rosie the Riveter. We will begin our visit with a short film, followed by a docent/Park Ranger-guided tour of the exhibit, and then enjoy free time to explore. Together we will honor the efforts and sacrifices of American civilians on the World War II home front. Find out how they lived, worked and got along. Rosie the Riveter features interactive and educational exhibits as well as a variety of park films, which show on a regular schedule in the onsite theater.
