    Well, this safety is a problem....I live in Hayward. Maybe next time I could pick you up Andrea. Or, we can devise some sort of smart plan, as its a shame to miss the fun........be careful out there!

    so sorry I couldn't come and so sorry not to call.
    I had a last minute baby sitting day with three grandkids on thursday and a huge tennis game friday morning so I fell asleep friday afternoon and woke up at 6!!! Question: can you remain at the bar and hear the music??
    I agree this is not a safe area in general tho it is close to that big whole food store---right?---- but there are lots of people exiting at the same time I would imagine.

    dont carry a purse--put your money and your phone in your bra ----wear an ugly coat--- then no one will bother you

    Yehudit, Im really sorry, but i just looked up the buses to get over there and they all leave me with 10-15 min walk up dark streets, downtown Oakland. I was mugged 4 yrs ago, and again an attempted mugging early Sept. If walking distance from Grandlake, ok but its not v safe for me.

    I had to back out of going tonight unfortunately. I have company coming into town and made other plans. I hope everyone has a blast!

    Jeannette & Linda, I'm with you on that. I'm more concerned with showing up in jeans & sneakers, since I would be coming directly from work - given the early start time. I doubt that's suitable for a jazz club...

    I just confirmed NO Parking lot or garage at the hotel.I think that people should try and leave in twos if possible when walking anywhere at night in Oakland.I parked on the street last week and walked by myself to the car.It seemed pretty ok out there ,but I have the same fear,so I understand.I think if I don't find parking close by ,I will probably not attend.
    Where do you live Jeannette?

    I am going to try and snag one of the high top tables between the bar and dance floor and main dining area.I like the view of the stage from there...anyone getting there early can look for me directly to the left of the maƮtre d podium .when you enter the lobby,just walk
    straight on.

    Hi, everybody,

    We have a BIG group going - 20 people as I write this. Several of us plan to get there early - between 6 and 6:30 - and will stake out some tables. I will bring a few Meetup signs so we can find each other. I will send an email to attendees with my cell phone for last minute communications and with the info I received from the bandleader. If you change your mind about going, please change your RSVP on the Meetup site so we can keep count of how many people are coming.

    I look forward to seeing you there.

    Yehudit,Did you reserve a table for the group through Open Table? If not you need to if we want to sit together.I was at the Terrace Room on Friday night .
    It was a lot of fun.
    Wondering if anyone is interested in meeting at the bar earlier for a drink?

      It's up to you. I like the high top tables between the bar and the dance floor I will snag one of those. I think you should get there earlier than 6:45 if you want a good spot.

      I plan to get there by 6:30.
