Bassist Christian McBride's Trio (Plus Pre-Show Dinner)

Let's check out bassist Christian McBride's new trio after dinner at Yoshi's-Oakland. NOTE: as of my creation of this posting (on Sept. 24), there are 8 discounted tickets available on Goldstar.

>>>UPDATE: Goldstar now shows this performance has SOLD OUT as of Sept. 26. (As of that date, there are still full-price tix available through Yoshi's website. ALSO, Yoshi's has no restaurant slots at 6:30 p.m., so I've moved up the start of the dinner to 6:15 p.m.<<<<

PRE-SHOW DINNER: Let's meet between 6:00 p.m and 6:15 p.m. inside the Yoshi's waiting area, prior to our 6:15 p.m. reservation time. (One advantage to eating there --in addition to the good food -- is that Yoshi's saves show seats for their diners, without requiring the 10-person minimum that otherwise is in effect for saved seats.) Please pick up your ticket at Will Call prior to dinner (we need to give those to the hostess so she can reserve our show seats) and bring cash to facilitate paying your share of the restaurant bill.

COST: On Goldstar, the total ticket cost per person is $16 (including Goldstar service fee). (Of course, dinner costs will vary according to what you order.)

SHOW TICKETS AND RSVP LIST: Buy your show ticket on Goldstar from the "sit together" link shown below. Click on "CHECK AVAILABILITY" on the Goldstar page that says "Sit with Paula M.'s group." Once I see your name listed on that page, I'll move you up from the Meetup event Wait List to the RSVP list. This will increase the odds of having an accurate headcount for the restaurant. NOTE: I'll likely cap the RSVP total at six people, to facilitate dinner reservations and seating.

UPDATE: Goldstar tickets for this show have SOLD OUT as of Sept. 26. People still have the option of buying full-price show tickets for $27.50 per person (including service fee) through Yoshi's website:

I'll send my cellphone number and more of a description of myself to RSVPers before the event, so be sure to check your emails for that.

LOCATION/TRANSIT: Reasonably convenient walk from 12th Street Oakland BART station, but after the show, people will likely prefer to take a taxi or bus back to BART.

    Agree. One of the best sessions I've ever seen, even better than Chick Corea at Blue Note where I was about 2 weeks ago. Came with a friend and missed you folks. Will try to catch up next time. The food was terrific as well.

    100 percent turnout of RSVPers; good food, good conversation; and a musical performance that was, in Meetup members' words, "knock-your-socks-off ... outrageously good!"

    Hi Paula, coming with a friend and have dinner reservations at 6:15 as well. Happy to join you folks if you have room at your table. Otherwise, we'll try to find you and stop by to at least say hi. Cheers. Roger

      still firming up headcount for restaurant table; will let you know. A "hi" at the least sounds good :)

      October 8, 2013

    • Paula M.

      Looks as though the 4 RSVPers will be filling up the restaurant table, with 4th person coming later, toward end of meal.

    Hi Paula - Yes, I'm joining you for dinner. I plan to get to Yoshi's by 6 to pick up my ticket at Will Call. See you in the restaurant at 6:15. If I'm stuck in traffic I'll call your cell. Did you send out a picture of yourself so that we know who to look for? Thanks, Kathy

    • Paula M.

      OK, sounds good, thanks!

      October 9, 2013

    • Paula M.

      Hi, got your follow-up emails about schedule conflict vis a vis the dinner; will hope to meet up with you before showtime per our email conversation, thanks!

    Hi Paula, I will do dinner. Sorry for not replying sooner, as I misunderstood the message. See you tonight. Thank you, Jeannie

    • Paula M.

      No problem! thanks for theinfo -- See you tonight :)

  • Paula M.

    I just sent my cellphone number to folks on the RSVP list. As noted in my emails, I'm still hoping to receive confirmation from people that they will be coming to dinner as well, rather than to the show only. Thanks.

    October 8, 2013

  • Paula M.

    I've reserved a table for four people for 6:15 p.m. at Yoshi's for Wednesday night. See more info on that in the Event Posting above. I've also sent RSVPers a couple emails to firm up the dinner headcount. I need replies to those. Thanks.

    October 8, 2013

  • Paula M.

    I'm assuming that everyone on the RSVP list (all 4 of us) plans to do dinner before the show (since the event is for both the show and dinner), but please email me back to confirm, ideally by tonight (Tuesday), so I can firm up reservations with Yoshi's. I sent folks an email on this earlier. Thanks.

    October 8, 2013

  • Paula M.

    On Tuesday night, I'll send people my cellphone number and other info for this event. I'm limiting total attendance to no more than six people to facilitate seating, etc.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
