aglaonema ID?

Tonight while walking past a cafeteria restaurant, I saw an amazing Ag which 
I had never seen before. It's big-- over a couple of feet tall-- and has 
long, creamy ivory petioles that are long and featureless like a round 
extension cord. I emphasize that the petioles were ivory, not pink. The 
leaves are very highly variegated with stark white on dark green, but mostly 
green... no silver. The leaves look sort of like "Stripes" but with white 
splatters that make them look almost psychedelic.

This restaurant gets the most amazing plantscape specimens (I'm dying to 
steal a piece off a burgundy philodendron vine in a hanging basket) but it's 
part of a huge chain, so the workers don't know anything about the plants 
that get delivered, watered, and changed on schedule. And I don't think 
they'll let me slice a cutting off this Ag! The stems of these plants were 
over an inch thick.

Does this sound like any named Ag you know?
