Alameda Social Club Hosts Fashion, Food Event

Alameda Social Club is presenting Sihouette, an event featuring champagne, small plates, fashion and more.

The evening event takes place from 6 to 9 p.m., tomorrow, Thursday, November 11, at C’era Una Volta, 1332 Park Street.

Owner Cheryl Principato and co-owner and head chef Rudy Duran of C’era Una Volta plan a special menu to accompany a fashion show featuring clothing, accessories and other items from Lilac Dress Boutique, Aphrodite’s Closet, Lan Vie Fine Asian Clothing, Marrin Costello Designs, Stella & Stevie, Doumitt Shoes and Alameda Eyes.

Tickets are $25, and some proceeds go to benefit the organization Believe in Me, a Kreitz Family Foundation.

According to organizers, Believe in Me is being created with the aim of supporting families of hospitalized children who need assistance with child-care and other home-related issues. Alameda residents Robert and Christina Kreitz are the group’s co-founders.


Alameda Social Club to Stage Second Event

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.)

Around Town:

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.
