11/7 NovoScene Wednesday: Food, Wine, and Films

Posted by novoscene on November 7, 2007

Got any Wednesday evening plans as yet? If you don’t, you should. Flora, the newest sister-restaurant of the popular Mexican restaurants, Dona Tomas and Tacubayo, opens today. Flora (1900 Telegraph) is not going Mexican, though. Expect classic American bistro dishes like burgers, homemade pasta, and sandwiches.

You could swing by the newly renovated Uptown, the bar next door (1928 Telegraph), to get a drink before dinner, or a nightcap after. And if you’re into skating, you’ll probably enjoy their show tonight: Skate & Rawk.

If skating and/or rock aren’t your thing, head down the street — and make a right to get to Broadway at 22nd — to the newly opened Franklin Square Wine Bar (2212 Broadway), where you will find more than 60 wines — mostly Californian and French — to choose from.

And if you’re in the mood for something deeper, then head over to Grand Lake for Grind & Glory: From the Streets to the Stage, a documentary about five young Bay Area rappers who dream of becoming hip-hop stars. Hosted by Mistah FAB and the Ella Baker Center’s Silence the Violence campaign, tonight’s screening is the first of six screenings that aim to get people to talk about the cycle of violence.

When: Wednesday, November 7th, 7 pm
Where: The Grand Lake Theater
200 Grand Ave
Oakland, CA 94610
(510) 452-3556
