Venues for dinner/dancing events

Below you will find a list of venues that BHS classes have used for dinner/dancing locations for their reunions. If the site is linked, follow the link for more information and to post comments about that location. Our focus here, initially, is for venues in Berkeley, Oakland, or Albany. Eventually we may add SF, Walnut Creek, and similar locations, but for now we’re emphasizing “local” venues.
