Renowned golf course architect Rees Jones was in Alameda on Tuesday, Nov. 10, to show the new Jack Clark (South) Course he designed to members of the City Council, the Park & Recreation Department and the Golf Commission.
This was no ordinary show. Jones has designed a new course unlike any in the Bay Area. He describes the course as a minimist design more like you would find in Australia, where you can play the ball to the hole by air or ground.
C'era Una Volta brings a taste of Italy to the Island City of Alameda with delicious Tuscan and regional Italian dishes and an extensive Italian wine list.
“From the day we opened our doors in 2004 we have received numerous awards for our food, ambiance, service and wine selection,” said Chef Rudy Duran, one of only a handful of Bay Area chefs recognized by the Academia Italiana della Cucina for his authentic Italian cuisine.
If Food Shift founder and director Dana Frasz and Alameda Point Collaborative (APC) Executive Director Doug Biggs get their wish, the families who live at APC will have one more resource to help them overcome some of the challenges they face.
These challenges include the isolation at Alameda Point and the inconvenience of having no supermarket nearby. Frasz and Biggs hope to help provide APC residents a kitchen that will help provide a solution to this problem.
