East Bay Food Fight to Benefit the St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County- What a fun Event!
My review of the East Bay Food Fight to Benefit the St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County
I had a great time. We arrived early and there were lines to get in. It was nice to be able to get your tickets ahead of time and stand in line so once you got in you could sample the small dishes without delay. The lines formed fast but we were able to make the rounds without having to wait early on.
Like all events like this some people are not sampling but making it their dinner so some vendors did run out towards the end of the event. Too bad we haven’t learned to share.
I saw Sal Castaneda from Channel 2 and had a photo opp I couldn’t pass up. Always fun to see a “local celebrity” He was there to facilitate the auction at the end of the event.
Two restaurants I now plan to visit are Zut on Fourth and Tay Ho on 12th St in Oakland. Loved the food at both. For the others, I was familiar with their cuisine and it was definitely the draw for me to attend.
Glad it was sold out, surprised I didn’t see anyone I knew and afterwards a lot of friends said they would have gone had they known.
