Inside the Submarino Restaurant at L’Oceanographic, Valencia, Spain.

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!! 😉

  • I first met Chad around the time I had brain surgery. He'd just gone through the same experience with a very different diagnosis. He went on to have SIX more brain surgeries and was part of a litany of clinical trials for his brain cancer. Through it all he was funny and brash and so painfully honest about his experience. He was also instrumental in helping me finish my book - I sent Chad a chapter every month while working on my manuscript. He joked that I'd enlisted a dying man to help me meet my deadline. I hadn't emailed him in months, and just found out today that he passed away right before Christmas. It was a long time coming, but I am still blindsided by the loss.

Goodbye you wonderful, brilliant, exuberant asshole. I knew you'd break my heart.
