Re: “Encuentro

I count this restaurant as one of the best in the bay. I am not vegan but simply love their food. Fresh, delicious, and served by a knowledgeable staff.

Re: “Roundup Saloon

So Gary Siu is right. There are no club dates posted for this Historical Bar, The Roundup Saloon in Lafayette at 3553 MT. Diablo Blvd. It is kind of a unique, Funky bar where live bands perform periodically. Tim Barnes band has successfully performed there 2 times and is coming up on August 28 for a recipe for a Rock and Roll Banquet. see www.timbarnesrocks.com I submitted an ad for the upcoming performance to that club for the band Tim Barnes & the Five Grand Band in plenty of time, (2 weeks prior) for the East Bay Express to announce it . At the time the ad was acknowledged by the events editor, but so far there has been no posting in the music and entertainment section of the East Bay Express for the Lafayette club. Up and coming struggling bands should be advertised. In this case, Tim Barnes, not a newcomer to the rock scene was a key member of the very popular '70's band Stoneground which made rock n rock history for a short time in the San Fransisco Bay area. With the management of Tom Donahue who was associated with an Alameda radio station at that time, took this band, under contract with Warner Brothers pictures, on 2 whirlwind movie tours which have since become cult movies and were shown successfully for a number of years internationally. "Medicine Ball Caravan" and the more successful, "Dracula, 1972 AD," That band was a hard driving band spearheaded by the growling guitar work and vocals by Tim Barnes. The unique solid rhythmic drive attracted local luminaries as Pete Sears, Jefferson Starship bassist and keyboard player and Sal Valentino.The band had tremendous success a handful of years but could not sustain because of so many in the band's personnel. There was a short hit single by one of the then girl singers at that time. After the demise of SToneground, Tim has had a successful career in Sacramento, first with the group called, the Fabulous Flames, then on to 25 year association with Mick Martin and the Blues Rockers. Tim continues to make rock history which is 100% home cooked. The ingredients of the hot band includes the high energy of Dan Stanton on bass and vocals, moving bass player and vocals, Gregg King, on master drums, Kenny Nichols and pulling it together, Chris Burns on keyboard. Come take a listen and you will soon be dancing your off!

Re: “Piedmont Piano Company

You can see musicians up close and personal at this venue with an outstanding selection of world-class pianos surrounding you. The shows have enhanced with new lighting on some nights and it's absolutely breathtaking.

Re: “Phaneros

Events at this space are over the top amazing. Features plenty of safe parking, a large art showing area, lounge, and rooftop lounge. I highly recommend anything that happens at this location. Run by some incredible community minded folks who know what it takes to create amazing, welcoming, friendly spaces. Get ready to meet and talk to some of the Bay Area's most interesting people while you wander from amazing artwork to the rooftop smoking lounge. I'm looking forward to many more amazing events at Phaneros.

Delicious, innovative, and healthy with many fish as well as crudo dishes!
Great tangy marinades and light sauce garnishes. The 5 course New Years Eve dinner was a hit!

Re: “Flacos Authentic Vegetarian Cuisine

Wonderful food, with a menu that offers very unusual items. I just discovered this Flacos today, and I am certain to be back soon in the coming week. The service here is friendly and very pleasant. A lot of high-priced restaurants could learn from these folks. Next time I got there I want to take photos so I can feature them on my developing website called "Good, Better, Best."

Re: “Miss Ollie's

Always a great meal at Miss Ollie's, right down the street from our condo. Atmosphere is on the very plain side, but nice vibe. If you are looking for a quiet place then you might want to consider other options, but don't be scared away by the loudness issue if you don't mind a bit of noise. I highly recommend this spot.
