L’Oceanographic at sunset.

I get to go to a lot of nice dinners.

That’s one of the perks of traveling with your husband for his work – I usually get to attend corporate events in fancy places. And then I make fart jokes, because I need to keep it real, you know?

That’s how I ended up eating dinner at the Submarino restaurant at the bottom of the L’Oceanographic at the Ciudad of the Arts and Sciences in Valencia, which is a rather remarkable venue.

 

A massive aquarium winds around the dining room.

 

Sometimes, you get photobombed by a sting ray.

 

You sit, surrounded by swimming fish.

 

And then, in a rather perverse and somewhat barbaric move, you get to eat their friends. I suppose I should have taken a photo of the meal, but that seemed sort of macabre, you know?

So instead, here’s one of Rand.

(Insert inappropriate joke about how delicious he is.)

    I want to go to there.

  • That stingray is hilarious! I’d kill to go to that restaurant. It looks amazing!

  • Incredible dining, love it. That would be interesting to have meals surrounded by swimming fish.

    Did anybody talk business during that dinner? I’m wondering…

  • What is it with work dinners? I got to have dinner in the aquarium in Perth, Australia as a trailing spouse.

    I just had a good chuckle because I showed this post to my husband to marvel at eating in an aquarium and instead he says, “Is that her husband?! He’s a handsome dude!” Your beloved does get admiration from everyone!! 😉
