We’ve got the date for the second Berkeley Blogger’s Dinner, it’s February 9 at 7PM at Afghan Oasis restaurant in the Shattuck Hotel, 2086 Allston Way. The SF Chronicle describes it as “the cavernous dining room where diners can sample chef Naim Amir’s Afghan dishes.” The food is excellent, and the room is huge.
This location is closer to BART than the last, the station is just around the corner from the restaurant. For people coming from SF or the South Bay, perhaps it makes sense to drive to a BART station and take the train across the bay. It’s virtually impossible to make a 7PM dinner from the other side of the bay without leaving two or three hours for travel, if you come by car. The train takes 20 minutes to get from the Embarcadero to downtown Berkeley. It’s an incredible deal.
