This Meetup is cancelled

Christmas tree lighting in Alameda and dinner following.

  • to
  • No location was chosen

  • I'll provide more details this weekend, but you can find it on yelp - Christmas tree lane in Alameda.
  • I thought it would be fun to see the holiday lighting in Alameda which is reportedly, "amazing, beautiful, captivating, delightful, exciting and fantastic".  I've heard that the neighborhood go all out and the display is beyond words.  My thought is to meet at the address posted on Yelp,  which is 3200 Thompson Avenue (between High and Fernside Blvd.), but I will visit myself this weekend and provide a secure place to meet.

    For those who would rather carpool, we could make arrangements at the Concord BART at 6, but otherwise, would meet in Alameda at 7.

    Thought it would also be nice to have dinner after, as we'll most assuredly work up an appetite walking around the neighborhood.  

    I'll provide some restaurants close by which are affordable and we can decide then, but I'll provide a suggestion or two.

    I'll be updating this event this weekend with a secure place to meet and a couple restaurant suggestions.

    Unfortunately I really think that this meeting was a stretch for all concerned and I've decided to cancel it. I want to extend my apologies for any one inconvenienced. I sincerely wish all of you a happy holiday anyway. (the lights are beautiful there should you be able to make it on your own! )

    Hi all - I went to visit this lovely neighborhood last night (Sunday). The neighbors on Thompson St. in Alameda (3200 block) go all out and try to outdo each other with holiday decorations and lights. The problem though is that there is no parking at all. People basically walk up and down the block. I think the best plan would be to allow each attendee of this meet-up to visit the neighborhood on their own, unless they want to meet me at the Concord BART at 6, in which case we can go together. Otherwise, we could meet at a restaurant in Alameda at 7:30 to share our experiences.
    The directions are to take the 880 to the High St. exit. Turn right at the 2nd light. Go down High about a mile or so to Thompson, make a right and you're there.
    Alameda is a quaint area with lots to offer and there are many restaurants of all persuasions.
    I hope this isn't too confusing. Please let me know your thoughts/interests for dinner. Cheers!
