2016 End of Year Luncheon

  • Noodle Theory Provisions

    5849 San Pablo Avenue, Oakland, CA (map)

    37.841869 -122.283676

  • No needles here; just look for the loud and crazy tables!
  • As this year comes to a close, come out for an afternoon of good food and yarn shopping with some of the best knitters in town. This is the time to meet and greet those of us in different meetup times as well as catch up with some we haven't seen in awhile.

    Since the closure of Samovar across from Imagiknit, we are switching things up this year and will take our annual event to the East Bay!  This will give us a chance to explore the Oakland yarn store - A Verb for Keeping Warm.

    The lunch location will be at Noodle Theory Provisions; just a short walk from A Verb for Keeping Warm.  We'll meet there a little before 11:30 as our reservations are set for 11:30, when they open.

    The details for lunch follow last year's: Please bring cash (at least $60, with some small bills) to make things easier on our servers. I will reimburse some of the meal with the excess member dues from this year, but they won't be enough to cover the entire meal.

    After our meal, we will head to A Verb for Keeping Warm to get a squishy yarn fix before heading our separate ways.

    See you there!

    Thought I was going to Bart it, but will likely drive instead. If anyone needs a ride let me know and we can see if we can make it work.

      Yup, room for 3 people besides myself. Stephanie, how easy would it be for you to get to my house in Glen park or Rebekah's in Bernal?

      Hey, is it too late to join in on the carpool? I could easily BART over to Glen Park and meet you somewhere.

    I'm so sorry gang- the flu bug has been going around the office and I woke up with congestion and a scratchy throat. I don't think I should be running around in the rain today....

    Sadly, I missed the rsvp for this event and rsvp'd for the (canceled) Meetup on the same date. If someone cancels, I'd love to join you!

    I'm looking forward to it! Actual Cafe is located right next door to AVFKW and their food is really good. James and the Giant Cupcake is located just a few store fronts down, too. :-)

      Thanks for the suggestion, Jen. Since we are so many and this is our special end of year event, we always make a reservation for this lunch. But let's definitely get some yummy goodies from James and the Giant Cupcake afterward! :)
