We proudly participate in the following traditions every year:
Annual Children’s Fairyland Gala
Every June Spice Monkey participates in the Children’s Fairyland annual after-hours Gala costume party for adults which features with twinkling lights, a silent auction, food and drink, and special performances.
During this event partygoers dress in fairy tale or storybook attire for the evening.
The Gala is Fairyland’s most important fundraising event of the year. Traditionally, proceeds form the event have helped keep admission fees affordable and have underwritten the visits of thousand of low-income kids each year.
Oakland Restaurant Week
Restaurant Week is a city wide celebration of dining and the culinary arts which coordinated by Visit Oakland, held every year for 10 days during the month of January. From the fanatic foodie to the casual connoisseur, Restaurant Week offers diners the perfect opportunity (and excuse!) to get a taste of the eats at Oakland’s top restaurants.
During this event, more than 50 great restaurants participated offering special prix fixe menus at $20, $30 and $40. We typically offer a 2-3 course meal the choice of a glass of wine or microbrew beer on tap.
Day of Giving
On Thanksgiving Day Spice Monkey serves a free Thanksgiving traditional dinner with a Spice Monkey culinary twist as a way to raise canned food donations and awareness of the Alameda County Community Food Bank and its 240 member agency partners.
Reservations are required.
Please email your reservations to:
firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Spice Monkey has hosted this celebration as a “thank you” to people who donate 15 or more cans each, which has resulted in more than 3,500 lbs of donated canned food to those in need throughout the past years. During this event guests enjoy the warmth and ambiance of the season with family, friends and other members of the community over a full-service meal.
We’re looking for volunteers to help at our ‘Day of Giving’ event on Thanksgiving day. We need volunteers who can help to greet guests at the door, serve plates, help set up and break down and clear tables. Join us on this joyous occasion of feeding Oakland’s hardworking people a wonderful meal in exchange for canned goods!
