International Speaker Series Pacific Voyages with Jamis MacNiven
Friday, May 14th, 6:00 pm
Jamis MacNiven is the founder and proprietor of Buck’s of Woodside, the restaurant known around the business world as Venture Capital Central for almost 30 years where Valley tech companies including Netscape, Hotmail, Paypal, Tesla, and countless others had their earliest investment meetings.
With the management of the restaurant now in the hands of his three sons and origin stories of tech giants now the stuff of legend, Jamis has set his sights on new voyages — chronicling the fascinating and wondrous history of distant locales and remarkable voyages of the vast Pacific Ocean.
“My motto is: ‘Travel to places you will never go.’ Trust me when I say I will take you to places you have not considered. This is a vacation from the cares of the world with not a whiff of the virus. But watch out for malaria, beriberi, blackwater fever, typhus, cannibals, murderous mosquitos, sharks, sea urchins, saltwater crocodiles, deadly jellyfish, political shenanigans, white bread with Spam and wildly overpriced Pina Coladas.”
“For me, it’s time for some blue water under the bow; so come with me and my parrot, Zimbabwe, and I’ll take you on a trip to strange and wondrous places.”
