Experience the culinary artistry of Chef Anthony Felan’s multi-course feast for the eyes and palate with Marlene Yu’s new 20-by-40-foot masterpiece and large works: "To celebrate Marlene Yu, we will merge Southern food with Taiwanese food, highlight all of her exhibits from Forces of Nature to Elements of Life, step outside of our regular restaurant settings, and bring it all to life on a plate to showcase the art, the food, and the whole background of Marlene Yu for one night: her 80th birthday."

The evening gala features cyr wheel acrobatics and fire poi spinning by Spinner Entertainment, sword-balancing tribal bellydancers of Port Belly Project, the debut of a local parkour jumper from All Angles Martial Arts, and other spectacular acts in an elegant, inspirational atmosphere.
