5th Annual We Love Old Oakland Community Fundraiser & Mixer

Caffe 817 & Ratto’s are co-hosting this year’s event and will donate 10% of all food & drink purchases from 5-7pm on Wed April 18, 2012. All ages welcome.

We are excited to celebrate the spirit of community with these folks who are opening the doors of their businesses for the evening.

Caffe 817’s new owners, Scott & Emily, and FOURTH generation Ratto’s owner, Elena, are welcoming everyone to come out share food & drink in our ever-changing neighborhood.

Periscope Cellars (tasting room located in Swan’s Market) will be at Ratto’s with his delicious wines to taste along with live Jazz.

Menu specials and more details TBA!

Old Oakland Neighbors (OON) is a 100% volunteer run grassroots community group founded in 2006 comprised of residents and business owners. Join us along with folks who work & play in our neighborhood for this annual fundraiser for OON.
