We Visit a Fairly New Wine Bar Called "Toast Wine Lounge"

For the 4th time we visit this fairly new wine bar and lounge, "Toast," that opened late in April. It is just 2 blocks North from Oakland's Rockridge BART Station. Also, cars may park for free at the BART station after 3 PM, and one may find other free parking in the Rockridge neighborhood. This event is especially convenient for our members who live in the East Bay.

A few people said this place is too small for us. No. On our previous visits we had enough room, plus since our last visit the premises have expanded with a new adjoining room! "Toast" has wine from small producers that you will have a hard time finding elsewhere. It has a nice sized front patio. Food is served until 10:00 PM and wine until 11:00 PM. It is OK to be late.

I plan to be there wearing my big white hat with a black band, and having name tags and sign in sheets for everyone. There is no costs except for the drinks and food you order plus tips. 

Here is a link to Toast Wine Lounge:

Below are two photos of "Toast" showing the front patio area.

    It was exceptional. We had our biggest ever turnout in Oakland with 32 official attendees and a few more unofficial. I mistakenly sent the 1st notice of this event to my walking group instead of the wine group resulting in more walking fans than usual. Can't fit here all the funny stuff, but a couple gave me a late X-mas present of a small stuffed hippo singing "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas." See the song on Youtube.

    Yes. It is OK to be late.

    As it is OK to be late, I will be wandering in about 8pm. :)
