Around the World Party to benefit Running for a Better Oakland:
Saturday, March 12, 5-9pm

We're so excited to announce a decidedly "grown up" version of an Around the World party happening here on Saturday, March 12! We'll be pouring four different wines and two different beers spanning six different continents. 

This party is to benefit a local organization we completely adore: Running for a Better Oakland.

Running for a Better Oakland (RBO) is a not-for-profit organization that encourages Kindergarten – 12th grade Oakland students to develop healthy lifestyles through running. By building confidence, setting goals, providing training and encouragement, RBO will give students the values for achievement and hard work that they can draw on for all areas of their lives.

RBO prepares program participants for the Oakland Running Festival half-marathon, marathon-relay, and 5K distances during the spring season (January – March) and for the Let’s Go 510 5K distance during the fall season (September – October).

Our party is happening March 12, the weekend before the Oakland Running Festival, so we can show our support to everyone running it! 

As runners, exploring the world by running streets and trails in foreign cities is one of the most memorable experiences during world travel... we'd like to mimic (riff on?) that experience at this party by doing the other thing that runners love best--drinking! Have a run on Saturday afternoon, then come drink around the world with us Saturday night from 5-9pm. 

Tickets will be $20 at the door for this walk-around "Around the World" tasting. A portion of proceeds will go to RBO!
