Re: “Alameda Point Antiques Faire

This is so huge, you can't believe it! I don't think I've ever finished it due to its size and the number of vendors. There are probably over 1000, to be honest. And each one is very unique. You'll see everything from vintage clothing to tools, furniture jewelry, plants, European items, Asian items, Native American, Africa, textiles and beads from Eastern parts of the world, and so on. It's a tremendous place to shop. Just bring your walking shoes for sure. The one drawback is lack of seating for when you finally take a snack/lunch break! I suppose if I went before 9 a.m. when the entrance price is higher than $5, I'd see the whole thing, but my feet still wouldn't survive! It's still worth going to. Store up your money and have some fun. There's an ATM just outside the entrance gate too. Some vendors take credit cards. I typically pay with cash. Getting in on a nice sunny morning is a chore due to the traffic. Same thing for when you leave. It'll take what seems to be a lifetime just getting onto Webster Street in Alameda so you can get back onto 880 and head home. By then you're totally pooped! But you'll have so many neat goodies to enjoy once you get there!

Re: “Cinnaholic

When I first passed this place I was drawn inside by an overwhelming fragrance of cinnamon. I was able to create my own cinnamon roll with decadent caramel frosting and then topped with chocolate chips and cookie dough... Wonderfully "CINNFULL"! I go back all the time now. You should go!

B restaurant a gem in Old Oakland. I went with a few friends and we ordered a bunch of things to share. The food is quite amazing, the focaccia and truffle fries are a must as a starter and their pizza's are perfect. I had the yummy pork chop on the menu and it was delicious! I enjoyed a couple specialty cocktails that were fresh and tasty, the one that comes to mind is the Love on which was fruity and fabulous without being too sweet, it had a perfect balance of flavors. The space itself feels comfortable yet refined, it has an open feel with large windows looking out to charming Old Oakland. I'm absolutely looking forward to coming back again and again!

Re: “Grand Lake Theater

The Grand Lake Theater is a gem, a historical beauty with comfortable seats, a large lobby, an amazingly generous owner with a social conscience who donates the theater for important benefits, events, to save the country, the world.

Re: “Iron Horse Nutrition

Iron Horse Nutrition is the Tri-Valley's best place to shop for sports and nutritional supplements. They have a friendly and knowledgeable staff, and are the only supplement store in the area to have a certified nutritionist on staff. They also offer four new tanning beds that clean, convenient and competitively priced.

Ate here last night. Food was wonderful. Had the Ahi appetizer and the polenta cakes and the fish stew. All were outstanding. Also topped it off with a great chocolate chip bread pudding.

Pricing was very reasonable. We'll be back.

Re: “Picante

We LOVE this place. The food is fresh, and goes beyond the standard Mexican-American fare (though not by too much). The place is usually crowded, if not packed, even though it's huge. They also do take-out, and it's usually the first place we think of when we want to bring something home. It's also moderately priced. This has been our favorite restaurant for many years, and will probably stay that way for many years to come.

I'm giving Betty 5 stars. You know why? Because they only make a couple things but every one of them is delicious and they don't F around one bit. You walk in, order and BOOM you are stuffing your face with something amazing involving chicken.

There is no place to sit inside. You wanna sit, you sit on a stool next to an ironing board on the sidewalk outside. I don't think they have a bathroom and I don't even know if they have a trashcan, BUT, they have AWESOME FRIED CHICKEN and that is why you go there! Get you some fried chicken. Fried chicken pieces of the chicken sandwich and have a cookie and a lemonade. Or get a take-n-bake chicken pot pie and go home and be amazed.

There's no sign. It's nothing fancy. But, it will make you happy and full.
