Al Fresco Dining Open on Webster

The Fireside Lounge, the Hunter Public House and Calafia Taqueria have teamed up with the West Alameda Business Association and the West End Arts and Entertainment District to create the Al Fresco Dining Park at Wester Street and Taylor Avenue. They presented their first live show last Friday. The evening also celebrated Edwina Maye’s birthday, shown here on the far left. Maye started Superhero Desserts on Webster with fellow musician Mike Phillips. They give back to the community by using money they make from sales at their shop for homeless outreach.

Maye’s son Zack Bateman, shown here at the microphone, wants young artists to know that there is space for musicians from all walks of life. “Sandy Russell and her staff at Fireside Lounge have been hard at work to not only keep their business open but to do what they can to help provide live entertainment to the community,” said Bateman, whose group contributes proceeds from their album to Black Lives Matter-related charities.

The dining park is open from 4 to 8 p.m., Thursday and Friday and from 2 to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
