In March, Sanford Marshall (left), head of the Wedding Coach and SanMan Productions, launched the Alameda Social Club at Pappo Restaurant in cooperation with the restaurant’s owner John Thiel (right).
On Thursday, June 24, the Alameda Social Club is hosting summer event from 6 to 9 p.m. at Barceluna, 2319 Santa Clara Avenue.
The group says, “There is no better way to refresh in the summer than with a tantalizing cocktail, and Barceluna serves them up as fresh as they come … Come mingle with fellow Islanders, enjoy a sampling of nibbles, groove to beats by DJ Dro, and cozy up to the custom built bar for a refreshing libation.”
The cost for attending the event is $20 and that includes snacks, a cocktail (White Sangria, Mai Tai or a glass of wine).
Some proceeds will be donated to Girls Incorporated of the Island City, and space is limited to the ﬁrst 125 guests. (In March, the group supported the Alameda Food Bank.)

Rooster’s Roadhouse at Grand Street and Blanding Avenue has a new paint job. The joint hosts live music on weekends and features a big jazz band on Wednesday nights.
The nearby marina area was hit with an odd robbery recently. Someone stole recording tapes from a security camera or two.
