Re: “Windsurfing Lessons

Cal Sailing Club is the best deal on the bay if you want fun, safe, cooperative windsurfing and sailing. All the teachers are volunteers, the club is a non-profit, and members fix the gear and provide free sailing Open House events and free sailing for disadvantaged youth groups in summer. Thanks to grants from the State Department of Boating and Waterways, the gear is superb--nice wide, stable windsurf boards with lightweight, easily handled sails, and modern trainer sailboats with nimble controls and forgiving handling. Plus the club has a "refugee kitchen" where hungry windsurfers and sailors gather for food and homebrew. If you just want to learn windsurfing, and want a pro to get you carving jibes fast, a windsurf program like Alameda Boardsports, ABK, or Delta Windsurf is great. But for a fun intro to windsurfing, Cal Sailing Club offers the best deal on the bay.

Re: “Win FREE Tix to the big DIY Bead & Jewelry Show!

Just now, I learned that I have the talent for beading because I get to stimulate my creativity. Now I can make various beaded gifts to my friends and family that I can personally make and it gives them happiness. I think everyone should try to hook one bead and let us see how well you perform. I am very thankful to these kinds of websites because it really made me a good bead maker now.

Re: “Merrily We Roll Along

Really enjoyable evening of local musical theatre. Live orchestra is tops. At the heart are inspired, well directed performances, and a very clever story of three friends beginning in 1976 with the action going in reverse back to 1957. Sondheim tunes are great. Poignant, sophisticated, and entertaining. Thursday, 10/20 will offer $10 rush tickets to teen (age 19 and below). In addition: Friday 10/21 and Saturday 10/22 at 7:30pm.

Re: “Merrily We Roll Along

This is a powerful production that you won't want to miss this weekend. It is beautifully performed by young, exuberant,and extremely talented actors who burst onto the stage. I felt lucky to see this show last weekend and wanted to recommend it to people to try to catch it on the last weekend of its run. I've heard that the show on Thursday night which will offer discounted tickets for teens.
This is a great opportunity to see an amazing production of a rarely seen Sondheim musical at a great price.

Re: “Merrily We Roll Along

I had the opportunity to see this wonderful,rarely produced Sondheim show at the Sunday matinee this past weekend. I had to recommend this event to other people because it was so incredible. There are only three more performances so I suggest you get tickets as soon as you can. This show has an exuberant and amazingly talented cast of young performers and the music is haunting and beautiful. The story is so poignant, it really makes one think about one's life as the characters move backwards in time to their youth when they were idealistic and starry eyed. A beautiful theme and a reminder to try to rememember our ideals and goals and aspirations from our youth and to live them throughout our lives.
I really recommend that you try not to miss this show!

Re: “The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Lots of fun. We were a little disappointed in the vocals, Riff-Raff was especially weak, but Tomas Theriot as Frank-n-Furter is a hoot, and confident enough in the role to ad-lib occasionally to good advantage. This production lacks menace, and some of the lines are not played to the best advantage, but the light-hearted quality of this production is engaging. Still too raw for the kiddies, but not as outrageous as you might expect.

Re: “Bumps & Gaps

Hadley Williams innovative range of materiality combined with a minimalist approach form wonderful viewing experiences. She is an artist to watch!

Re: “East Bay Mini Maker Faire

If you like the Maker Faire in San Jose, you will love this one...mini refers to the size-a more manageable area to cover but just as much fun and oh so interesting...don't miss it. I loved it even in the pouring rain last year!

Re: “Smashing Pumpkins

I've been to the Fox Theater in Oakland many times. I've seen many, many bands in this lovely theater. I know the acoustics aren't the best but this is the worse sounding indoor show that I have ever been to.

I've also seen the Pumkins a few times, once in the Fillmore in SF and that was their last tour, they were amazing, high energy and the sound was the best that I could ever have imagined. Now think the exact opposite at the Fox. Awful sound, I couldn't even make out what Billy was singing, the bass was heavier then anything I've ever heard. It sounded like the band was stuffed inside the trunk of a old Cadillac, muffled and just plain awful sounding. The mic must have been picking up some sort of echo from the acoustics above and behind the band, it was just plain awful.

The song selection also sucked. I have listened to their latest album Teargarden By Kaleidyscope and I expected them to play their latest songs but the combination of not being able to understand the lyrics and then the terrible sound left me truly disappointed. There were maybe a handful of songs that they played from previous albums (this was yet another massive disappointment).

Truly one of the worse concerts I have ever attended. The fans left listless and humbled by the fact that a great band in a beautiful venue does not equate to a great show.

This would be a ZERO star show if it were up to me, but one star is the minimum I can give.
