Come experience the East Bay! This is a very popular community event with thousands of people. Our group: Meet IN FRONT of AlaMar Kitchen & Bar (outside) promptly at 6:00pm. Do a quick meet & greet for 15-20 minutes while waiting for others to arrive. NOTE: if you want to enjoy AlaMar's happy hour, do it earlier. The place is very small and not recommended for large groups. About 6:15-ish, we'll head out to see the festivities on Telegraph Ave and W. Grand. NOTE: if you miss us at AlaMar then you're on your own, sorry. You are NOT going to find us at the festival; there are thousands of people there. So make friends before heading out. It's normal to lose people from the group as we go. That's okay. Everyone is responsible for themselves. *** This social activity is FREE for Meet More You members; just RSVP at Otherwise, the cost is $10 cash only. Not a member? Signup for free. Bringing friends? Each person must register and rsvp on this page for the discount. *** What does everyone need to know? Oakland First Fridays is an immersive art and community experience on the first Friday of each month on Telegraph Avenue from West Grand to 27th Street. Every First Friday from 5-9:00 pm, Oakland's KONO district springs to life with for this event, with galleries, artist collectives, street artists, local culinary artisans, performers, musicians, dancers, DJ's, and poets gathering for Oakland First Friday events. They have a large food court/area with tables around Telegraph & 24th St, with a large number of food trucks. That's usually our first stop. Then they usually live music, performances and dancing. The art studios are open late and that's what I like to visit. NOTE: they sometimes have changes in performances and/or cancellations (due to rain). So visit their FB page for updates, OR their website, How can everyone find you once they get there? Again, meet IN FRONT of AlaMar Kitchen & Bar (outside) promptly at 6pm. I will wear my cowboy hat so that everyone can easily find me. See you there!
