Museum to Host First of its Kind Event "Pop Up to the Plate" Pop Up Restaurant

GIG HARBOR, WA – The Harbor History Museum is putting some spin on their new fundraising Pop Up Restaurant on March 11, 2017. Director, Katharine Hensler noticed that no one else was holding “Pop Up” events in the community and decided to swing for the stands. She and her team are hoping for a home run. Using a concept popular in metro areas throughout the country, a Pop Up event is literally that – it pops up in an unusual venue, and provides an experience to patrons that can only be enjoyed for a short time. In this case, one exclusive night only!

The event, Pop Up to the Plate, is expected to be an experience of a lifetime for attendees. On March 11, the Museum will be transformed into an upscale dining experience for sports fans as Jeremy Bryant, the chef for the Seattle Mariners recreates the favorite dishes of some of your current and past Mariner players. Event chair, Karla Bloomquist stated, “What other time in your life will you have the chance to dine with the Mariners’ Chef Jeremy in this town? Not only that, it’s supporting a great community cause!”

The event consists of two dinner seatings: 5:30pm and 7pm, a 4-course meal with food inspired by Mariners’ players favorite dishes, a cash bar, dessert bar, live music, a silent auction of Mariners memorabilia, and a chance to win an incredible on-field pre-game batting practice experience with the Mariners for up to 6 people! Tickets for the event are $150 per person, raffle tickets for the on-field experience are $50 each. (need not be present to win and batting practice experience IS open to all).

*Stay tuned for announcements regarding a special guest appearance.

Tickets and chances to win are available now at or at the front desk of the Museum. Please contact Katharine Hensler, Executive Director, at 253-858-6722 ext. 3 or at For more information about Harbor History Museum, visit Find the museum on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, too.
