Alamedans interested in enjoying the summer and supporting Alameda Meals on Wheels may want to mark Sunday, July 17, on their calendar.
From 1 – 5 p.m. at Rock Wall Wine Company, 2301 Monarch St., Alameda Point, R&B Cellars will be celebrating the memory of Meals on Wheels’ supporter Martha Killebrew with a wine-tasting event. A suggested donation of $20 will be requested at the door.
Swing and jazz music will be played by Three O’Clock Jump, and a silent auction items will take place for fine wines, gift baskets and vacation destinations. Local restaurants will share hors d’oeuvres.
In addition, there will be a kids’ area, including some carnival activities.
R&B Cellars says this is the biggest fund-raiser of the year for Alameda Meals on Wheels.
This coming Saturday, July 9, from 2 to 5 p.m., R&B Cellars will be hosting ZAP’s 1st Annual Rib-O-Rama at Rock Wall. Advance tickets are $45; $55 at the door.
From 5 to 9 p.m. on July 15, Rock Wall Wines will host Food Truck Fenzy, with an array of food trucks serving unique cuisine. Wine will be available for purchase from the wine bar, and there will be live music. RSVP online.
R&B will also participate in the East Bay Food Fight in Jack London Square from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on July 23.
This event features chef battles, culinary demos, 40 top restaurants, VIP judges and a live auction. Only six wineries were invited to pair with this food fight affair, so R&B is delighted to be among them.
Tickets are $25-$40.
