Time to Toast Alameda Reads!

Angela’s Bistro & Bar, at 2301 Central Ave., and several local vintners areĀ full of good cheer in October.

The restaurant and bar, located near the Alameda Theatre and Cineplex, is donating proceeds raised from wine tasting this Friday, October 9, to the Alameda Free Library’s adult literacy program, Alameda Reads!

If you try two 4 ounce glasses of wine, or an 8 ounce glass, for $10 between 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Friday, you will be helping Alamedans to improve their reading skills.

Angela’s did the same wine tasting and benefit last Friday, October 2, and is calling such events “Friday Night Flights.”

It’s great to see local winemakers, merchants and community groups come together for such a great cause and in such a creative way.

According to staff, the restaurant is named for the daughter of manager, Maria Zafari.
