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!!
I honestly didn't think anyone knew about this place! I found this place while buying beer one day when I lived down the street. Everything they sell is AWESOME!
Splendid. I was surprised that I found this opera and it's amazing staging as powerful, if not even more, than Carmen.
A great place for great food and wine. The setting is warm and friendly, as is the staff. They also have an joining wine shop that has a wonderful selection.
I feel that everyone at Prima's is dedicated to making sure my evening is perfect. I've been eating here for years and have never been disappointed.
Epic venue, love the space, state of the art Meyer Sound systems, education program, and unique community focus!

Alameda Home Tours are a wonderful way to spend time with family and friends over the holidays. Plus everything goes to Alameda Family Services! The homes are always amazing...
RDL+ is intricate and fresh! Not to be missed! Great music; great venue.
I loved the restaurant when it was on McAllister before it moved to Geary @ Jones, and I loved it on Geary too. Over the years there have been many great waiters and personable staff although after a best friend moved away I found myself less often at the restaurant. Now though, now that Millennium has moved to my hometown, I'm generating a new habit again.
I've seen this show in various incarnations as it was being developed and have brought various friends to it and, amazingly, I am never bored for one second. It's so funny, so intelligent, and so moving. And you really don't need to have kids or dogs or a husband or wife of your own to get it. Anyone who has led a busy life with unexpected crises and relationship complexities will see themselves in this. Sometimes that will make you laugh, and sometimes it will make you squirm. Lots to discuss and think about afterwards, so it's a great show for friends, a book club outing, a date night with an established partner, an activity with your parents. Date Night at Pet Emergency is a great example of what I love about solo performance; it stimulates conversation and self-examination like no other art form. And you'll be laughing all the way.
At once funny, touching, and very human, Ms. Rothman paints on a large canvas, using recognizable, everyday situations we can all sympathize with to explore bigger themes: the nature of love, the challenges of present-day marriage, and whether we are destined, despite our best efforts, to repeat the patterns set by our parents. Love, of course, wins out, as it must, but the real star of the show -- Ms. Rothman's smart, slick performance aside -- is perseverance.
This is a big story, a validating tale for couples wondering why "having it all" costs so much, a cautionary tale for couples who think they'll be able to skate, and in general a most entertaining journey for everyone. Will continue to prompt smiles and/or good conversation, long after the final bow -- or, in this case, the final bow-wow.
I have been dreaming of going to this popup for year- finally I noticed it was across the street from me! yeah! Yes it was everything I wanted- real food finally. Delicious chicken with so many flavors, great Sake Sangria! and Deviled Avocado- on on fresh veggie sides. Don't miss the Brownie at the front door either. -- Great Fish Tacos = ps everything is gluten free!!
Imagine someone who fights on the front lines for voting rights, reproductive rights, a livable wage, affordable housing, and an overhaul of the criminal justice system. Marie Equi did all that nearly 100 years ago. And she was a lesbian -- one of the first publicly known lesbians on the West Coast. As well as an early woman physician. She served time in San Quentin for speaking out against WWI. ......
Reads like an historical novel but is solid history with political context and extensive citations.
