We’re lucky to have such an amazing restaurant conveniently located on our 4th floor. With such wonderful harbor views and a relaxing atmosphere, the Glass Door has decided to relaunch their menu to match the environment and enhance it’s experience!
“Elevated bar food…the go to Happy Hour Spot where people meet up to have some great cocktails and savory, easy to share appetizers before you head out to dinner, an outing in downtown or concert! Then even come back afterwards to cap your night.” That’s what our new head chef Dorian envisions for the Glassdoor’s new approach. Come on up to the 4th floor and try out the new additions they’ve got cookin’ up! The new menu includes house baked potato chips and pretzels, karaage, and so much more. View the new menu here
Glassdoor would love to hear your feedback on the new direction, so don’t be shy to provide it!

Traveling is fun but packing light as possible is another thing! Everyone can definitely relate to the feeling of worrying about forgetting something important then cramming as much possible in that carry-on bag. We’ll let you in on a few helpful tips that’ll be sure to improve your suitcase’s weight and give you the relief you need.
*Begin with a smaller bag
Duffle bag, small leather or canvas bag…pick your preference. Beginning with a smaller bag will help guide and trim your packing selections. Any of these types of bags have much open space and room to pack your essential clothing, toiletries, extra pair of shoes, and your in flight entertainment (iPad, magazines, or books). The great thing about these bags are that it’s easier to tote around the airport and the soft sides assist in squeezing almost anywhere!
Plan your airport outfit strategically and keep in mind of what activities and/or weather forecast.
*Leave the “tools” at home
