Mug weirdoes, I resemble that remark .
The fez guys will be there but sans fezzes. Resting my head on the pavement either before or after the even will muss my rhinestones.
Do you think the Hawaiian barbeque on Encinal will cater breakfast and might there be a special drink to go in these special mugs ?

Here's some lodging options in Alameda and nearby that I posted last year for the grand opening.

The best choice is the Coral Reef Inn. It's a block from the beach (there is a beach fronting the bay in Alameda) and it's on the main street in Alameda, Park Street, with lots of good places to eat within walking distance, plus there's a big shopping center across the street, and a bowling alley next door. Rooms start at around $80, and some have lagoon views. It also is a bit Polynesian in style. It is not within walking distance of Forbidden Island but it's a short cab ride.

http://www.coralreefinn.com/

Coral Reef Hotel and Suites
400 Park St, Alameda, CA 94501
(510) 521-2330



Another option that is closer to the bar is the Marina Village Inn, but it may be more expensive.

http://www.marinavillageinn.com/

Marina Village Inn
1151 Pacific Marina, Alameda, CA 94501
(510) 523-9450, (800) 345-0304



Closest to the bar are a Days Inn, and a Hawthorn Inn, both on Webster. Webster is a fine street in the day, but at night the bars and many liquor stores attract some seedy characters, so I would avoid hanging out there for long at night.

Day's Inn
1925 Webster Street, Alameda, CA 94501
(510) 521-8400

Hawthorn Suites Ltd
1628 Webster St, Alameda, CA 94501
(510) 522-1000

There are also a couple of B&Bs in Alameda.

Garratt Mansion
900 Union, Alameda, CA 94501
(510) 521-4779

Webster House Bed & Breakfast Restaurant & Tea House
1238 Versailles Ave, Alameda, CA 94501
(510) 523-9697
The oldest house in Alameda, built in 1854.

I wholeheartedly agree with this option.

Isn't there another place near the Coral Reef where the rooms actually overlook the beach and the bay? I can't remember it's name, or if I'm simply confusing it with the Coral Reef.

We were at that Marina Village place not too long ago. It is kind of damp and musty, so I personally wouldn't go there.

Also very true. Conga Mike and Denise reserved the "Honeymoon Suite" at the Days Inn for the continuation of the Forbidden Island New Year's Eve party, and we noticed some seedy characters guarding the front of one of the motel rooms, bodyguard style, serious scowls on their mugs. I've since driven past there several times, and have looked for those guys, and they are out in front of that room every time! So there is either drug dealing or prostitution, or both, or something else seriously shady going on there.

I think the owners of this place sold it, and it has been turned back into a private residence. It's actually on our street, so we will scope it out tonight.

Coco Loco and I are really looking forward to this event!

I would also like to add that the Coral Reef Inn is right across the street from a shopping center with a Trader Joe's that has the bags with the tikis on them. So if you couldn't find them wherever you live, we have 'em here!

I haven't had a chance to visit yet. Hope we can make it up.

I heard that my number is on the wall in the girl's bathroom?....

REALLY popular(see long ass wait). They are hit or miss though. Sometimes the service sucks and the food is great, vice versa or both. Overall, if you are across the street, it could be worthwhile, just order some beers and stand inside as you wait for a table. Even better, go over to Webster St. and eat at the cozier Yokohama. The baked scallop roll makes life worth living.
Anyone else who needs East Bay/SF food tips just pm me. I am an obsessive in this category.

___________Oh yeah, this is my 100th post-yippee!______
Aloha Mr. Hand

Al-ii, WooHooWahine and I are confirmed at the Coral Reef Inn for Saturday and Sunday!!! Got a killer deal through Yahoo Travel!!! $84/night!!!

Also secured transportation, so it looks like we might make a hit on a few tiki bars before the BIG EVENT at Forbidden Island!!!! Look out T.V.'s Emeryville, Kona Club and Konga Lounge!!!
