1000 Oak St, Oakland, CA
Come out and have an awesome time! With a free concert, lots of delicious food trucks, an awesome garden & view of Lake Merritt, and an overall great time with awesome people! This is a no-host meetup if I can not be there, so show up early and/or take BART, get to the location on time, and meet others for the event! Instructions below!
Map to meetup location here:
Meet at 7PM, and whoever is there will depart from location on map at 7:15PM to enjoy food & festivities until 9PM+? The meeting place is at the corner of Fallon St & 10th St, in front of the Laney College sign. (See OMCA Map above)
DELICIOUS FOOD. FREE LIVE MUSIC. DRINKS. 1 BLOCK FROM LAKE MERRITT. 7PM. MEET SOME LOCALS. WHY NOT?
OMCA has a live band on the outside of the museum every Friday evening, in a bit of amphitheater area, along with a tasty variety of food trucks for "Off the Grid," and the whole street is shut down for everyone to enjoy the wonderful night. #1, the plan is to meet some awesome folks in the area that enjoy loving life and the great places we have to enjoy. Then get some food, drinks, enjoy the music & evening, and maybe whatever. There is no ticket cost for the outdoor event or gardens. Bring money for booze or food you would like to buy there.
The plan, after meeting awesome people, is to:
1) Get some delicious food at the amazing variety of food trucks at the event for "Off the Grid." I would be stoked to team up with a few others to buy a few meals to share from different trucks so we could try a little of everything - which we cant do eating a full entrée from each truck on our own, or even in "couples"..
2) Enjoy the fantastic live music blaring from the amphitheater area. Want to chill and relax while eating, watching the crowd and chat? Get up and dance with others? Shake it all night long? To each their own! Do what you want and enjoy yourself how you want to. There will be others doing the same, whatever it is...
3) Drink Tasty Drinks! They sell beer and wine, and not sure about liquor, in a public area at the event, down below the live music. Alcohol is only allowed within the amphitheater area I believe. I am sure that some individuals bring their own alcohol in their purse/bag/carrier instead of purchasing there. While this may not be necessarily "endorsed" by the venue or organizer, it is something that some folks do, sometimes to save money.
Would you like to organize events around the Lake Merritt area? Become an event organizer for this group! I love meeting local peeps, but I'm busy! Help me get people connected! Pick an awesome event, and send me a message to get started!
