Can anyone recommend a place near the Oakland Marriott City Center that would be interesting, fun and have fabulous appetizers? I am not familiar with Oakland and my task is to find a location for an alumni event near the hotel. Of course the budget is less than one would like. So that is a major consideration as well as being walking distance from the hotel. I would imagine that there will be between forty and fifty people attending. As the budget is so restrictive, the alumni will be purchasing their own beer, wine or cocktails. Thanks!
