COLUMBIA, SC (August 1, 2014) – California Dreaming is set to host a spectacular, fun-filled evening to celebrate their 30th anniversary on Tuesday, September 16, 2014 from 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Party-goers will experience the classic and historic atmosphere while dancing the night away to live music by Tokyo Joe.

Union Station became an instant landmark when it opened on January 14, 1902. The passenger station, ancillary building, seven trackside walkways and a bridge that formerly spanned Assembly Street remained a transportation hub for 70 years. California Dreaming reformed the sprawling complex in June 1984. Thirty years later, the restaurant is a Columbia fixture with many of the same staff and guests frequenting the popular restaurant and bar. Altogether, 9 award-winning restaurants throughout the Southeast make up the brand.

On this day, “we celebrate our loyal guests, dedicated staff and quality purveyors for their continuing support as partners in our growth,” said Greg Greenbaum, proprietor of California Dreaming.

California Dreaming is known for its big portions and great variety, offering many signature items including: slow-cooked Prime Rib, famous nachos and the notable crowd pleaser, the California Dreaming salad- mixed greens, shredded ham and turkey, cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses, chopped eggs, tomatoes, toasted almonds topped with warm ham and bacon and served with a freshly baked honey-butter croissant.

California Dreaming is open seven days a week at 11:00 a.m., offering lunch, dinner and bar dining. Happy hour is offered in the bar from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. with live music every Thursday. Carry-out and large party catering with delivery are also available. Reservations and private parties are accepted and encouraged.
