Craig & MacGregor & Friends rock the house every Wednesday. $5 All you can eat before it disappears starts at 7pm. See you next week.
Sorry, folks, the Conga Lounge has been closed since 2015
Featured readers are often well awarded and published poets, yet the sessions in a private room in the restaurant are receptive and this is a good place for Open Mic where even a 1st-time reader can feel comfortable among the more established voices.

Great fun for kids and adults alike. Can't wait for the expo to open!
I cannot think of a better way to spend my Sunday evenings. Geoffrey's is a very comfortable setting, Yancie Taylor is fantastic. The band and the music are wonderful. I also love the Jam session. The dinner is only $5.00 and finger licking good.
If anyone has seen Vassar's previous film retrospectives, it's an amazing body of work and you'll learn a tremendous amount of never-before-known history about the National Parks. This presentation was first shown to a sell-out crowd in March 2016 at the Smithsonian Institution and it has sold out wherever it has appeared since. The program will be touring throughout California in 2016 and into 2017, so here's an amazing opportunity to see it in the Bay Area's most intimate theater.
Awesome!! Can't wait!!
This show is actually on the 14th! If you could please amend that?
I believe that it should be a requirement that all city officials and police chiefs throughout California should see this display so that they can have the unbiased truth about this plant and how politics have steered public opinion on this issue,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
One more thing the event goes from 5-10pm
This is awesome! Lets get Oakland Small Biz online for Summer 2016!!!
For a historical tidbit, I met Jesse in 96' while he was touring with Filth. I was selling an assortment of Lookout 45's in my music case and I was selling his old Blatz records. He introduced himself as Jesse Blatz to me
Show runs from May 6th, through July 30, 2016
What's in a scribble, where does it come from, and why are we drawn to draw? Come explore the work of two brilliant Bay Area artists who challenge you to look at what we find under the bed. Don't fear the cheeky beastie.

Can I tell a little more about the way I run this crazy thing? If you get up to tell a true story, you win a free drink! Spontaneous Storytelling is a monthly event combining the fun of meeting new people with hearing and telling true stories. How it works: When you come in, you'll be handed an icebreaker game card. The object of the game is to meet each other! You'll seed your mind with stories. After the game, it's time for open-mic stories using themes suggested by the audience. Put your name in the hat, and if you get called up to tell a story, you win a free drink! FREE.
A short hop from Oakland's popular Uptown, Transmission Gallery is home to some of the most interesting and creative California women artists working today. Right now they are featuring Maija Peeples-Bright, the last person standing of the California Funk Movement. Reminiscent of potter Beatrice Wood, Peeples-Bright, is as colorful as one of her art works, which are populated by wildly colorful "primitive" animals she calls "beasties". Check the Gallery for hours. Only drawback is that they are upstairs and there is no elevator in the building.
This listing is incorrect, the show runs the entire month of April and there is a reception Saturday, April 9, from 5-7pm
This has been moved to the 4th Saturday of the month!!
Awesome event with amazing bites from local artisans! Beautiful views of lake merritt from the rooftop terrace of the Kaiser Center!!
