Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Best dive in the East Bay hands down!
What you didn't tell readers is that the truck in the back has great seafood tacos and ceviche at low prices. Otherwise the menu is the same.
And if you want more radishes, just ask.
I enjoy the variety of activities for any schedule. If you want to tone up, lose weight or just be healthy, this is the place to come. It's a little expensive, but there are scholarship programs, etc the can help defray the costs. The volunteers and staff are extremely friendly, very helpful, and eager to please. The YMCA Hilltop is the place to be!
The Dragon Rouge Vietnamese Bistro is Outstanding. Great atmosphere with a great view of the Estuary and the Park Street Bridge, as it enters Alameda. The menu is fairly small in items but giant in its' adventures of flavors and beautifully presented Vietnamese dishes. The staff is very professional yet friendly. From the Greeters, and the Runners, to the Servers, you always feel welcome and part of the family. The co-owners, Dan and Jimmy, are always around to answer questions or extend their greetings and best wishes. A full bar compliments this wonderful experience.
Clean, well lit, friendly and warm (must be the fireplace). Best open mic in the East Bay because it is a songwriter's open mic (must play at least one original to perform at all).
You must go see this ! A rare chance !
I had a great time. The music has a nice old school back in the day Silks feel. I highly recommend checking out Body Language Thursday Nights at Lukas!
This is the best breakfast place in Oakland. If not on the planet.
Love this place! Line out the door for big plates of brunch yummyness
Great Venue! I saw the Old time Music Convention there
Great place to experience meditation and to explore it further. Classes in psychology, Buddhist studies, Tibetan, Tibetan Yoga, and, of course, meditation. Something for everyone, no matter what kind of orientation to self and the world. Peaceful meditation garden with giant prayer wheel is open to public whenever they are open.
In my travels, I often think of Oakland's amazing food offerings and the Vegan Catfish plate with everything at Souley Vegan is like Christmas Morning to my mouth!! It was like $19 or something, worth twice that! ~ This kind of knowledge deserves reward!!! Cheers!!
It was amazing! 3 time customer!!!
last time I was there they said they were closing :( and becoming a 'Van' cool :) I'll look for them the next time I am in Oakland, which I hope is soon!
The Artichoke Bean Baked thing was a Vegan Orgasm!!!
I've eaten everywhere, and I love Marica's. They do wonderful fish, are fairly priced, and have a wonderful wait staff who make the dining experience terrific. Zagat rates them a 27 on food, which is only one star less than chez panisse and stars ahead of Oliveto, Bay Wolf, etc. It is a great local place to eat.
The owners are a coffee and tea dream team with over 50 years combined experience. Rich, Robert & Eric love nothing more than meeting customers and sharing their love of fine coffees and teas. You won't meet three nicer people and can ask them any questions, whether you are a seasoned Third Waver or an occasional decaf drinker.
The pastries from Starter Bakery are the best around - the Kouign Amann is a bit of heaven.
Keep your eyes on Highwire, great things are coming from these guys. They care about their customers and what they brew the cup.
What a fun place! Beautiful, unique art work and crafts. Great place to go shopping for the holidays. ALL LOCAL!
I love Chaparral City Studio Art Gallery! Friendly, inviting atmosphere.
515 9th Street
Old Town Oakland (Off Broadway)
Best place in town.
I was impressed by what an excellent play/performance art this was. The cast members were all very engaging. The story is the Sumerian version of the classic Persephone myth but they made it fresh and compelling. Some of the interactive pieces worked and some fell flat; one based around writing & leaving personal memories inside the shrine of Inanna was very moving to me. I had zero expectations and was very pleasantly surprised. This company has a lot of talented people.
Excellent coffee, friendly staff!
