Downticket Dinner

Start: Thursday, September 22, 2016 6:00 PM

End: Thursday, September 22, 2016 9:00 PM

Join Transport Oakland, and celebrate with us at our first annual Downticket Dinner on Thursday, September 22 from 6-9 PM. Enjoy dinner and drinks with fellow transportation supporters, meet the candidates we've endorsed, and learn how we can vote for livability, vitality, sustainability, and equity through transportation in Oakland.

Confirmed Speakers

During the event, our endorsed candidates will share their experiences, dreams, and plans for Oakland's transportation future. We'll have a short speaking program, and many of the candidates will be available after to discuss their work further.

Dinner and Drinks

Dave Campbell, organizer of the Oaktown Throwdown and Program Director of Bike East Bay, and Mike Davie, founder of the Oaktown Throwdown champion team Smoaktown, will be on hand serving up smoked beef brisket, along with a menu of other Southern-style sides and vegetarian-friendly entrees.

Dinner is included with every ticket. Oakland-brewed beer and wine will be available, too.

Venue is located on 14th Street by Broadway in downtown Oakland, down the block from a 12th Street BART entrance and several bus connections. The space is wheelchair accessible and child-friendly.
