Webster Street in West Alameda arguably has the largest variety of cuisine concentrated in the smallest geographical area.  Within just a few short blocks, you’ll find restaurants serving up food from around the world.  Whether it’s fast food or fine dining, comfort food or dim sum delicacies, a dining expedition on the West side of the island can take you to Mexico, Thailand, Vietnam, China, India, Italy, Japan or France.  And at nearby Spirits Alley at the Alameda Point, local wineries and brewers are crafting beverages that get worldwide attention.

The annual Wine & Dine event is a great way to explore this wide variety of dining and drinking options with a showcase of five selected restaurants and local wine and beer.  The event begins at 5:30 pm with a reception at Otaez Mexican Restaurant where diners can taste a variety of beverages, sample appetizers from the participating restaurants, enjoy music and mingle.  A free raffle will be held, with prizes from West Alameda merchants.  The reception is complete at 7:00pm and diners then decide which restaurant they would like to go to for their entrée and complete their dining experience.
2nd Annual Veterans Job & Resource Fair
In honor of Veterans Day 2017, the USS Hornet Museum is hosting a 2nd Annual Job & Resource Fair for veterans, military families and active military soon to be transitioning to civilian jobs. This event is an opportunity to meet face-to-face with top Bay Area companies from a cross-section of industries ready to hire. Even if you are not familiar with a company or hiring agency, still visit their booth as they may have the right job waiting for you at their corporate office despite being, for example, a retail company. Visit our website before the big day to see which employers are participating. Bring copies of your resume, pens and confirmation of your registration. Come ready to be interviewed. Registering is important for faster on-boarding and to give us an accurate head count for refreshments and supplies. Your registration provides an opportunity to tour the ship in between seeing recruiters, as well as admission on Saturday, November 11th for Veterans Day. Due to security reasons, please do not bring large bags or backpacks if at all possible with you. Please share this opportunity with other veterans and military spouses you know looking for work. Thank you. FAQs Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? I.D. required to match name on registration. Bring your military card or form DD214 (if you still have it), just in case an employer or service provider asks. You may register at the door but we strongly encourage advance registration so we know you are attending. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? Free parking lot in front of the ship, including many handicap stalls. There will be a free shuttle from the College of Alameda to the ship. How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Outreach@uss-hornet.org. For more information about the museum, visit www.uss-hornet.org. Dress code? If at all possible, dress professionally as if going on an interview. If planning to explore other parts of the ship beyond the Hangar Deck, we discourage wearing open toe shoes for your safety as reaching those decks or levels will require using a ladder. Is there a free shuttle? Yes! Michael's Transportation (one of the employers participating) will run a free shuttle on a continuous loop between the Admin Building of the College of Alameda to the Hornet and back again. This location is near the corner of Webster Street and Atlantic Avenue, a major stop for buses in Alameda.
