OHH presents The East Bay Alpha Club! "F" is for...

  • Feb 8, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's an exciting event folks: it's Forbidden Island, on a Friday, and to top it all off, we're gonna ask our friends from the FUN in Alameda group to come and join us! The tiki gods couldn't have aligned this fantastic coincidence of events better, if you ask me. :)

As Don the Beachcomber (inventor of the Tiki Bar) said: “If you can't get to paradise, I'll bring it to you.” Comon, you know you want to forget the frigid weather as of late and escape to a island paradise, even if for only a night. Hula yourself out to Alameda and join us!

For you early birds that want to get a head start, the bar Happy Hour specials (5-7 pm) are the following:

$6 Mai Tais or Navy Grogs
$5 Well Drinks
$4 Bar Snacks
$3 Draft Beers

This location is not BART-able, but for those willing to make the trek, I hope that a Friday event will allow you some time to come out and enjoy yourself, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, sober up enough to get back home safely. (Word's on the street that the Alameda Police aren't very forgiving about laying down the law.)

Hope to see you there.

Okole Maluna!

      Hello Bill, that is my jacket and gray cardigan. I was combing the entire bar for 10 minutes wondering who took my coat - it's bloody winter and I needed my coat to get home. I do'

      I don't understand why it wasn't turned into the staff. Please let me know how I can get hold of you to arrange a pick up. Thank you.

    Good times!

  • Sandra

    I'll be extremely late, as I need to go home, and walk the dogs first.

    February 8, 2013

  • Carol

    I'll be late - hopefully Friday generates a later crowd : )

    January 27, 2013

    • Synthia

      Hi Carol, usually our Happy Hours go until 8:30 or 9. However, since this is a Friday event, I'd expect people to stay a little longer! Come on by when you can!

      1 · February 8, 2013

  • Synthia

    Hi Everyone!
    Wow, such a large RSVP list! The capacity of the Forbidden Island is 104 people, so I've had to cap the RSVP limit. The folks at Forbidden Island are more than happy to accomodate us, but they caution that the wait time for drinks may be long! (But, imo, worth the wait.)

    As mentioned by Erica below-- bring your warm coat as we may need to overflow to the back patio!

    See you soon!

  • Chloe

    I'm coming from work, so probably won't be arriving until after 7 if that helps...

    February 5, 2013

    • Rick

      Chloe people usually stay at these events until 8:30 or 9, however given this is a Friday I am guessing that it will go even later.

    Can't make it, but thinking out loud as I've been there many times, can they hold 90+ people in addition to the regular crowd on a Friday night?
