Moms Gone Wild - 7 Alameda mom-approved hot spots
BY CHRIS KIUCHI
Congratulations – summer is over! The kids are back in school, (and out of your hair!) which means you probably deserve a little “me time.” So, where do all the well-deserving Alameda moms go to let loose after the kids are in bed? We chose our 7 favorites, but we know how passionate Alamedans are about leisure time, so please feel free to comment with yours.
Thank you for subscribing.
1. American Oak
2319 Santa Clara Ave, Alameda, CA 94501
The gastropub off of Park Street serves up contemporary comfort food and great cocktails - good recipe for a couple of hours of intense gossiping.
2. Forbidden Island
1304 Lincoln Ave, Alameda, CA 94501
Everyone’s favorite Tiki Bar in Alameda can get a little crowded but it’s well worth the wait as you settle into a booth with a few of your girlfriends and a scorpion bowl.
3. The Hob Nob
1313 Park St, Alameda, CA 94501
The Hob Nob does everything pretty good, and …they have board games that you can bring back to your table. Scrabble, some truffle fries and a Cosmopolitan doesn’t sound so bad, right?
4. Rock Wall Wine Company
2301 Monarch St, Ste 300, Alameda, CA 94501
Views of the bay, great wines, food truck events and Scolaris on-site make RWWC a must. Rock Wall closes at 8:00 pm (Mon-Fr), probably before your kids are in bed. So get your partner to handle dinner and treat yourself to sunset sans kids.

5. Lucky 13
1301 Park St, Alameda, CA 94501
A loud, no frills spot on Park Street with an outdoor patio. Lucky 13 has a trick up its sleeve – you can have food delivered from neighboring Scolaris. Ummm, burgers and beer…
6. Fireside Lounge
1453 Webster St, Alameda, CA 94501
With plenty of street parking for your Odyssey and reasonably priced drinks, the Fireside is a great spot for a weeknight (!) meetup with a friend or two.
7. Swell Bar
1539 Lincoln Ave, Alameda, CA 94501
Swell is absolutely perfect for those who enjoy small, divey neighborhood bars. Go on a warmer night to enjoy the great back patio.
