Once again Charlie Hallowell and his team at Penrose/Boot & Shoe/Pizzaiolo host their monthly Sunday Suppers, where you get a lot of delicious food and drink served family-style while raising money for a great local nonprofit, the HOPE Collaborative. HOPE Collaborative works to support community-driven, environmental changes to reduce health inequities within the most vulnerable communities of the Oakland flatlands.
This Sunday’s Supper is at Pizzaiolo, at 5008 Telegraph Ave in Oakland.
The early seating is sold out, but our experience is that the 8 p.m. seating is great fun because there is no rush to leave after dinner. In fact, cocktails and talk continue into the night. And we have met some terrific new friends, encouraged by the communal tables.
Tickets cost $60 per person, wine included, for a multi-course, prix fixe meal.
A signature cocktail may be ordered throughout the night at the cash bar—100% of the proceeds will also be donated to the organization.
Why not sponsor seats for low-income Oakland residents to attend?
We have an Exclusive Sneak Preview of the Night’s Menu:
- Riverdog Farm asparagus with di Stefano burrata, snap peas, fennel and fried artichokes
- Little gems with green goddess and marinated beets
- Llano Seco and Marin Sun Farms porchetta with Tokyo turnips,

- Olive oil cake with Swanton Farm strawberries and whipped cream
- (A vegetarian option is offered. Make that request when ordering tickets.)
