Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Veggie Philly YUM
One word: Frickles!!
The oldest in the Bay Area still has it. Pool, Burlesque, events and beer busts. Still numero uno in my book.
Darts, board games... it's pretty much heaven.
Love their cocktails - high end and tons of whiskey and bourbon choices.
Laid back, outside and inside seating - you can go here all dolled up for dinner (it's swanky inside) or in your jeans with the dog to sit outside. It's the perfect blend, all while being just far enough away to make it not too hard to nestle up to that bar for another smooth cocktail.
Delicious and in a perfect spot to keep it just busy enough and not too busy so I can always get my fix. Their almond morning bread is mouth watering.
Ashkenaz has different, authentic, live, vibrant dance music every night, such as Salsa, Cajun, Rock, Blues,Swing, Reggae, Zydeco, Folkdance,
African, Caribbean, Brazilian, etc. The cost is very low and often includes free dance lessons.
We LOVE Eli's...Great people that work there, cool people that go there. And TWAT wiill be playing there on 6/21/13. Why they (EBE) never put our ads up is a mystery....
Peets brought/invented dark, full bodied roasts in America. We'd still be drinking Folgers, Hills Brothers or Sanka without Mr. Peet! Every boutique coffee roaster in the bay area or the good old USA needs to thank Peets
Amazing and total mix-it-up venue; though you never know what event is going on when you show up, they always deliver, the security is fabulous, the staff is courteous and inviting, and the decor is freakin awesome. The have 2 different rooms you can dance in and one whole bar room all equipt with gold couches and hand painted coffee tables all over (they even have cute stenciled F8 logos in the corners!). Even in the backroom, which is smaller, the DJ is heard completely and without any clash between the the smaller and the larger rooms and it looks like they actually take care of the decor; there's a giant mural on the back wall that is apparently changed seasonally. I would totally recommend going here on a night with the bands (Tuesdays,) or for Housepitality (free champagne from 9-10) or on Saturdays when Trapp City is hosting the evening.
Off the beaten trails. Nice place to relax, write, spend time that's usually not so crowded and has a decent view of trees.
Awesome food and atmosphere. The owner is incredibly accommodating and conscientious of the guest. Love the variety of food and multiple beers. The patio on a sunny day is THE place to be!
They made me the best grilled goat cheese sandwich ever! And a Redbull vodka to go with it.
To have been in Oakland all these years and still be here standing tall. Says a lot about the longevity of a good time in the East Bay! Under rated! Should not be over looked! :-o
