What we're about

Foodies and film lovers, in your 30s and 40s, come explore Alameda’s vast array of delightful restaurants or watch a film at the historic, art deco, Alameda theatre. We’ll mix it up with one or the other or both.

We’ll savor cuisine from around the world including some of my favorite Alameda restaurants: Injera (Ethiopian), Yume Sushi (Japanese), Burma Superstar (Burmese), Spice I Am (Thai), Trabocco Kitchen and Cocktails (Italian), Wine & Waffles (wine bar) and this is just for starters. Sidestreet Pho (Vietnamese), Mama Papa Lithuania (Lithuanian), Speisekammer (German), Angkor Grill (Cambodian), Asena (Mediterranean) and many more are also on the radar.

Generally, we stick to restaurants with 4-star Yelp reviews or higher.

Frequently, we’ll pair a dining excursion with a film, though sometimes we may just enjoy a casual happy hour or film viewing independently of a paired event.

You don’t have to live in Alameda to join. So close your laptop, silence your iPhone, and come meet some new people! Great dining. Great films. All within the hip, little, island community of Alameda.

Saturday Night Film and Drinks!

Alameda Theatre & Cineplex

$1.00

It's time for a Saturday night film at Alameda Theatre and cocktails at Cinema Grill! I'll announce the movie once showtimes are released the week of the event. Before the movie starts we'll meet and chat in the bar area of Cinema Grill and you'll have a chance to order food and drinks! Additional Info: 1) Please close out your tab as soon as you order. Cinema Grill processes one bill at a time so you may miss the beginning of the movie if you close your tab out just before the film. 2) You may order food at Cinema Grill and have it delivered to your seat if you have a reserved seat. Join us for a relaxed evening out! Come just for cocktails or just for the film or both. Please RSVP by noon Saturday, February 23rd. Your $1 fee will be collected in cash at the event. Great dining.
