Remember Alamo Creek Restaurant? Help a Wife Find an Anniversary Present Memento

If anyone can help with this request please email help[at]beyondthecreek.com and I’ll forward it on to her.

From an email:

My husband and I both grew up in Alamo, and our first date was at Alamo Creek Restaurant (now Lamorinda Pizza). As an anniversary present, I am trying to find a photo, menu, or really anything from the restaurant. I know you post a lot of restaurant openings/closings so I am hoping you might have a photo.
