Re: “Donut Savant

This may be the best donut that I've ever eaten. This cute shop, demurely situated between a falafal shop and a junk store, and conveniently at the mouth of a 19th St Bart station entrance, keeps me always wanting another. Firstly, the donut I can only describe as "cake" but it doesn't leave that heavy, "why did I just eat that" feeling in your stomach. It only leaves you wanting more! A sucker for chocolate, the first donut I had was the chocolate glaze. Unlike the Krispy Kreme, or Dunkin' style glaze, Donut Savant has a thick, Julia Child-style dark chocolate ganache spread atop each cake donut. It is unreal how delicious it is! The other styles and flavors I have tried are similarly delicious. I can also attest to the delightfulness of the seasonal pumpkin donut.

Re: “EiWear

Friendly and chic... not often do those two qualities share common ground, but at E iWEAR, it's different. Jennifer and Ernst are super sweet and the selection of styles is amazing. Best of all, none of the frames come from the global eye-wear giant that dictates prices and puts small guys out of business. All the frames at E iWEAR come from small manufactures, with one of them being just a few miles away in Hayward, CA. I highly recommend them!

I attended the first of these discussions a couple of weeks ago. It was very interesting.

Re: “Berkeley Rose Garden

The Berkeley Rose Garden is one of the most visited sites in Berkeley and not to be missed any time of the year. The event promises to be one of the most gratifying and fun filled event of the year. Do not miss it.

Re: “Tease Me Boutique

I took my boy friend and picked up some lingerie. They also have stockings and toys. It was such a refreshing experience, the store has a contempo style and everything they sale is current. They have lingerie that I haven't seen anywhere else.

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: “Taqueria Sinaloa

What you didn't tell readers is that the truck in the back has great seafood tacos and ceviche at low prices. Otherwise the menu is the same.
And if you want more radishes, just ask.

Re: “Hilltop Family YMCA

I enjoy the variety of activities for any schedule. If you want to tone up, lose weight or just be healthy, this is the place to come. It's a little expensive, but there are scholarship programs, etc the can help defray the costs. The volunteers and staff are extremely friendly, very helpful, and eager to please. The YMCA Hilltop is the place to be!

Re: “Dragon Rouge

The Dragon Rouge Vietnamese Bistro is Outstanding. Great atmosphere with a great view of the Estuary and the Park Street Bridge, as it enters Alameda. The menu is fairly small in items but giant in its' adventures of flavors and beautifully presented Vietnamese dishes. The staff is very professional yet friendly. From the Greeters, and the Runners, to the Servers, you always feel welcome and part of the family. The co-owners, Dan and Jimmy, are always around to answer questions or extend their greetings and best wishes. A full bar compliments this wonderful experience.

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).

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!

Re: “Tibetan Nyingma Institute

Great place to experience meditation and to explore it further. Classes in psychology, Buddhist studies, Tibetan, Tibetan Yoga, and, of course, meditation. Something for everyone, no matter what kind of orientation to self and the world. Peaceful meditation garden with giant prayer wheel is open to public whenever they are open.
