Valentine's Day

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Broad Brush, your Alameda week in review. Here’s your Island news for this week.

The San Leandro Bay Bridge – better known to locals as the Bay Farm Island bridge – will be getting a bit of a facelift. The car bridge will be closed nights starting in October. The bike bridge, meanwhile, will be shuttered for some daytime and some evening hours.

Got plans for Valentine’s Day? If not, look no further: We’ve got the 411 on where you and your sweetie can enjoy a special dinner, a few glasses of wine or some sweet treats, right here on the Island.

Here’s a rundown; if you’re a business owner hosting an event we missed, feel free to leave it in the comments section of this piece.

Dragon Rouge will be offering a four-course dinner for Valentine’s Day for $30 per person. They will also offer a couple’s package that includes a bottle of Rock Wall wine for $99. 2337 Blanding Avenue; 521-1800. Open 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday.
