This Wednesday I had a blast at the Museum of Science’s #MOSKitchen party. It was an exciting night filled with a sangria-making competition, a lovely dinner catered by Wolfgang Puck Catering, and a tour of the Museum’s recently debuted exhibit, Yawkey Gallery on the Charles River.

We started the evening mingling in the New England Habitats exhibit with some sangria and hors d’oeuvres. Then we moved to the kitchen, which apparently was the host to the Bravo Top Chef competition in Boston — how cool!
We were divided into teams of four, and used an array of juices, fruits, wines, and liquor to create our own concoction. My team created a red wine sangria with brandy, sherry, cranberry juice, ginger ale, and berries, that we dubbed “Crimson on the Charles,” an ode to Harvard, the new MOS exhibit, and the of course, the color of our sangria.

Then we moved to the Yawkey Gallery on the Charles River, a beautiful new permanent exhibit at the Museum that overlooks the Charles River. We enjoyed a lovely dinner catered by Wolgang Puck catering, featuring dishes like seafood paella, beef empanadas, mini lobster rolls, roasted vegetables, a sushi bar, and so much more.

The new exhibit features all things related to the nature and engineering of the Charles River. There is even a crawl-through tunnel surrounded by 600 gallons of water that houses different fish species that reside in the river. It was so fun to explore the exhibit and enjoy the beautiful view of the Charles River from the patio.

We ended the evening with some great desserts — chocolate fudge cupcakes, strawberry vanilla cupcakes, and churros with caramel and chocolate sauce. What a delicious evening!
