Ladies and Gentlemen,
As the great Olympic Games roll on this August, we invite you to a different sort of sporting event that any able-bodied gourmand can participate in. Stag Dining presents: The Oakland Olympiad, hosted at the Oakland Lawn Bowling Club at Lake Merritt. A leisure-inspired sporting and al-fresco dining affair.
Join us Saturday, August the 20th at high noon. Fourteen lawn bowling lanes will be available on manicured greens for sportsmen and women to get rolling. Equipment and game instruction provided by Oakland Lawn Bowling Club members.
PROVISIONS & SUSTINENCE
Stag Dining will be serving summer cocktails and delicious fare throughout the afternoon to keep you lubricated and well nourished for the strenuous sporting activities of Lawn Bowling and Picnicking.
Attendees are encouraged to embrace the tradition of lawn bowling attire and break out the seersucker and bleeding madras sitting in your closet to celebrate these leisurely pastimes in your finest summer dandy attire!
Bring a picnic blanket to throw on the grass for an afternoon of live jazz, libations, and cuisine. Our esteemed bartender, Ethan Terry, will be mixing, stirring, and shaking cocktails from the bar all day. Our chefs will be preparing delectable Hors D' Oeuvres and a picnic basket filled with house-made delicatessens for the après bowling activities.
Over the past 5 years, Stag Dining has made a commitment to provide unique, compelling and unpretentious dining experiences that celebrate the Bay Area's rich culinary culture. We're looking forward to celebrating this first Oakland Olympiad with you.
