Re: “The Missouri Lounge

Probably my favorite bar in the East Bay... Would be here all too often if I lived a little closer.

I love that people seem to hate their bartenders... Only had a problem once and it was an honest mistake.

Cheap, heavy pours and good food.

Re: “BRIX 581

Going to Brix on a Sunday morning for chicken fried steak has become as natural as getting coffee every morning. Now that they have added the bottomless mimosas I'm a happy camper.

Re: “Catahoula Coffee Company

Real award winning coffee, not just burned beans like Peets. More like McCallums on Solano many years ago when they sold ice cream and coffee. And also, real people, of all sorts, meeting, talking, working on wifi - a great place to hang out.

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: “New Karibbean City

Great music. Definitely the hottest Dancehall shows in the Bay.

Re: “Modern Coffee

A coffee shop with soul and community. Definitely worth going out of your way to enjoy a truly amazing coffee (and tea) experience. Those who live/work nearby are lucky to be able to make this their daily stop. Kudos to Kristen and her partner Tina Nemling!

Re: “Icon Ultra Lounge

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.

Re: “Portal

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!

Re: “New Karibbean City

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

Re: “The Fireside Lounge

Clean, well lit, friendly and warm (must be the fireplace). Best open mic in the East Bay because it is a songwriter's open mic (must play at least one original to perform at all).

Re: “Luka's Taproom & Lounge

I had a great time. The music has a nice old school back in the day Silks feel. I highly recommend checking out Body Language Thursday Nights at Lukas!
