The Oakland Moneyball movie premier, starring Brad Pitt, is shaping-up to be a pretty popular Monday night event, and starts at the Paramount Theater at 6 PM, or about four hours from now. (Expect the area of Telegraph and 18th in Downtown Oakland to be crazy with people and traffic.)
Oakland Restaurants will have a Moneyball special, and Steve Snider, Uptown District Manager, described in this way: “The Uptown District is working hard to help coordinate the evening’s celebrations,” says District Manager, Steve Snider. “Word of mouth has taken off and we’re expecting a lot of fans to come out and enjoy the nightlife that we’ve all come to expect in the Uptown at events like First Friday.”
And if you want to do some star-gazing, just go and hang out around there between 4:30 and 6 PM, and then afterward for 7:30 PM and 8:30 PM, as folks are headed into the Fox Theater.
Now for the list of Oakland Restaurants that have Moneyball-related events:
Pican, (2295 Broadway) is offering $5 Pican Pale Ale, Wine, and Tennessee Margarita/$6 Shrimp Beignets
