Ocean5 – A social destination for fun and food- but that’s not all the story…
…I would like to give you a personal view of what’s “Under the Surface” of Ocean5 in my next few Betty’s Blogs.
There is so much more to Ocean5 then simply a place to play, meet and eat. This grand facility has a back story and so much more then what you can see. That is why I will reveal to you in several linked blogs “What’s Under the Surface”of this innovative trend-setting business. I have personally immersed myself in the Ocean5 experience in the past few weeks. I have also learned from the founder and local resident Troy Alstead of his 10+ year passion and vision of establishing this first of it’s kind social gathering center that is a trend-setting model of a truly sustainable facility. Troy has literally experienced facilities all over this planet and he chose to build this dream business right here in his home town of Gig Harbor. After you learn about the concepts and facility components and the practices I want you to walk into Ocean5 with new eyes as I did and be proud to bring your friends and family over & over and brag about what Troy has established right here in your community.
I listen to you and first off I would like to answer the confusion of the 2 different names you see and hear of: What is Ocean5 and what is Table 47?
Ocean5: “Is the Environment” As the five Oceans in the world are connected (Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic, Southern)- we find connection here – to each other and to our planet. When you enter Ocean5 you will sense the ocean from the wall of waves, the art, the colors, the use of ropes and natural wood, the carpet and use of light. The three-story atrium entry feels inviting like the expansive waters calling you to the calm of the open spaces, or the areas of “rolling” waves or diving into the areas of excitement.
Table 47: “The Table of the Restaurant” We gather on the “47th Parallel North” around the Table. But this is NOT your average restaurant. You will experience a culinary tribute to locally sourced food prepared and presented in a creative artful fashion that is clean and healthy. Table 47 provides the food throughout all the many areas of Ocean5.
So now you can visualize the Ocean5 “Environment” on the 47th Parallel where you can gather around the Table or simply hang out for food or beverage or join in playing fun interactive games.
