rworange | Apr 28, 201010:28 AM     1

An East Bay Express thingy I get in the email mentioned La Borinquena now is open on Friday and Saturday evenings from 5 to 9pm with a special menu. They also are planning events. On Cinco de Mayo Negra Modelo Draft & Bacon Hot Dog Specials $3 each. That is a Wednesday night, but they will be open to celebrate the holiday.

Here's the website link and menu.

Actually the new Tina Tamale site has more info about those evening openings which include

• Friday, May 7 First Friday Art Reception featuring paintings by Joaquín Alejandro Newman of Forrealism: A Vision of the Future of Indigenous Art.

Chocolate tasting provided by the Oakland Chocolate Company whose farmer members in the Parish of St. Mary, Jamaica, are linked to the candy makers in Oakland.

• Saturday, May 8 LB at Twilight Special Event: Fair Trade Shopping with Mangosteen
5-9pm

Sounds interesting. Here's the Tina Tamale site
