Re: “Berkeley Bowl

I used to live two blocks from this place and I still get a warm feeling when I go by. You can find just about everything here (except Velveeta). And they don't pull on your guilt strings like Whole Foods.

Just because it's such a hidden gem. A nerd's wet dream.

Re: “BPG

Helpful staff, you can take your time here or get in and get out as quickly as you want. Great selection that's updated online, and they deliver.

Re: “Missing Link Bicycle Cooperative

These people really know what they're doing and will take all the time you need to help you choose the right bike, even if it means steering your toward a less-expensive bike. You can also trade in your old bike here for store credit.

Re: “Grand Lake-Oakland Farmers’ Market

Just go there, you'll see why. Some of the most beautiful produce you'll ever see. This is what California is about.

Re: “The New Parkway Theater

A great theater / cafe / community space. Ever wanted to order gourmet food, good beer, then go sit in a theater with stadium seating filled with comfortable living room furniture, and have your food delivered to you? You can do that here. Just for that, let alone the good this place does for the community, I think it's the best theater in the East Bay.

Re: “Oakland Museum of California

It's hard to believe just how enormous this place is. I've gone there twice and still haven't seen it all. And the exhibits are very well-curated...you'll learn more about California than you could have imagined. Also, they have free admission on the first Sunday of every month.

Re: “Albany Taproom

I like their veggie burger, no bun, plus egg. Great salad, fries, and other small plates.

Re: “Ashkenaz

This club is the BEST. Every night is a different kind of LIVE Music. You can choose from Blues, Rock, Cajun, African, Carribean, Reggae, Brazilian, and many, many MORE. The dance floor is wooden and has give to it, so it does not hurt. Three good bathrooms, inexpensive to enter, eat, and drink. It's Very safe and has plenty of parking in the REI lot across the street at Gilman and San Pablo Ave.

Re: “Lounge 3411

This spot is really kind of a find. It is located in an area you wouldn't think had any type of nightlife. Once you walk inside your eyes immediately adjust to comfort as the staff greets you and the decor grabs you. I walked in on a Saturday night that just happened to be a house night for music. The party was called "Infectious" and it was just that...infectious. These DJ's were really good and the drinks weren't bad either. I plan on returning often.

Re: “Lois the Pie Queen

Lois has been dead for over twenty years now but the business long outlives her. That's beautiful. She left a legacy that has been handed down to her son. That's powerful. A mother that leaves a business to her children, I love any parent that does that. That's powerful man. We need more intergenerational transfer of businesses and wealth in the African-American community. We have some, but not enough, we need more, much more.
