Reminder: Berkeleyside Holiday Party, Thursday, Dec. 17

SpatsMark your calendars, if you haven’t already: Thursday, Dec. 17, 6-9 p.m., Berkeleyside is throwing a holiday get-together at Spats on Shattuck Avenue.

All tips from the evening — as well as proceeds from a raffle with enticing prizes — will go to the Alameda County Community Food Bank.

The raffle prizes include: two tickets to see Alvin Ailey American Dancer Theater at Cal Performances; a $50 gift certificate for brunch at Penrose; two certificates from Keter Salon for a haircut or color treatment; a $50 gift certificate for Sports Basement; a $50 gift certificate for YJM Gallery of Fine Arts; two $25 certificates from Caviar; as well as more from PIQ, Hotel Shattuck Plaza and Grove Salon.

Let us know you’re coming to the Holiday Party.

Berkeleyside staff will be behind the cash bar, together with Spats employees and a number of “celebrity guest” bartenders from the Berkeley community.


We are happy to be supporting the Alameda County Community Food Bank distributes more than 2 million pounds of food each month and serves an astonishing one in five Alameda County residents — yes, you read that right: one in five. According to the food bank, one in three children in Alameda Count faces the threat of hunger.
