Reconnecting With Big News

As we start to come up on our one year anniversary, we are thrilled to share the exciting news that we will be opening a new location in Emeryville. Officially called Farley's on 65th, this new location will help us serve all our friends in the town next store. We did not want them to miss out on all the fun!

Farley's on 65th will bring a new element into the Farley's family, catering. Farley's on 65th will enable us to fulfill all the catering requests we regularly receive.

Farley's on 65th will open Tuesday, May 11. We are going to ease into this so initial hours will be Mon-Fri from 7:30-2:30. Look for hours and days to expand in the near future.

Most importantly, the official grand opening party will happen in late May and you are all invited. Stay tuned for details.

Finally, we look forward to seeing some of you at Farley's on 65th, we look forward to meeting new people at Farley's on 65th and we look forward to seeing you at Farley's and Farley's East!

Looking Back at 2009

Well, 2009 was certainly a BIG year for us at Farley's East! The year began with the construction plans being approved by the Alameda County Health Department and then a surprisingly quick approval by the City of Oakland. From there, we were underway with construction, working fast and furious to open ASAP.

Speed forward to Thursday, June 18, 2009 at 11am and you have Farley's East open for business! Looking back, we have learned so much, grown so much and look forward to continued growth and learning in 2010.

I have to say that we have been overwhelmed with the support we have received from the neighborhood. The countless "thank you's" for just being open has been tremendous. Prior to opening, when we told people we would be open on the weekends, they said we were crazy. Six months later, we have a bustling weekend business all day long. The neighborhood has made this happen and for that, we are extremely grateful.

The Farley's East team wishes everyone a happy, healthy, prosperous and caffeinated new year!

Non-Profit of the Month Happy Hour

Every month, we feature a local non-profit that is working to better the lives of Oakland residents in some way. As part of the program, we host a happy hour providing free appetizers and a portion of all sales are donated to the non-profit. This month, we have an exciting and unique organization. We are partnering with Oaklandish. Oaklandish funds the Innovators Awards which recognizes multiple local non-profits:

"Oakland has historically been a hotbed of renegade activity, where boundaries are redefined and trends are created rather than followed. To help encourage the continuation of this "trailblazers' legacy," Oaklandish has created the Oaklandish Innovators Award, a fund that offers annual grants to those organizations and individuals who are doing pioneering work in our community."

We are proud to raise funds for the 2010 Oaklandish Innovators Award. We hope you join us on Thursday, December 3 from 5-8pm to support this worthy cause.
