Re: “Don't Cry for Me Babey

This restrospective exhibition showcases photographs of farm workers taken by Ernest Lowe 50 years ago in California's Central and Salinas Valleys. The focus of the show is on children and families. 50 years ago Lowe photographed many children working in the fields, some as young as 4 years old. In researching the situation today, Lowe found little has changed-- young children are still being exploited by corporate agribusiness. See for more information and a preview of the show itself. The show's opening is tonight, with wine, appetizers, and a talk by Lowe, and the show runs through the the end of the year.

Re: “Rivoli

We have been there about 7 times over the past ten years. It is great everytime. If you want a fine dining experience in the East Bay it would be my top recommendation. Skip the overly hyped -- and not so great places -- like Chez Panisse and go here instead.

Re: “Cinnaholic

Excellent. Best cinnamon rolls in the City of Berkeley that I have tasted.

Re: “Haven

Not sure when this review was written, but I couldn't disagree more. Chef Alter has a firm grasp on flavor profiles and composes plates like a true artist. In a single dish, the diner can have half a dozen different bites, each for foretelling techniques that take hours to execute. Chef combines texture, temperature, and taste in manners that keep your palate interested and eager for more. She does plays on many foods that bring back childhood memories in a sophisticated way. And the source ingredients are as fresh and seasonal as can be.
I get around to many restaurants, but this one keeps me coming back for more and more. Hands down, my favorite Oakland restaurant.

Re: “BUILD Pizzeria Roma

This is my favourite place. The ambience, bar, the freshest ingredients to create my "inner Pizza" and the very acceptable pricing.

Their beers, and cocktails are crafted by the best bar staff in the area and the restaurant brings in families, academics, students, lovers and friends. I highly recommend BUILD.

Re: “Bibliomania

This is an excellent bookstore. Jean and Daryl are very knowledgeable and helpful. I always find something at Bibliomania. Jean knows what I read and will e-mail me or tell me when we cross paths in the neighborhood about a book that might interest me. Bibliomania is conveniently located a block from the 19th Street BART station on Broadway, and there is plenty to do in the neighborhood, including the Fox Theater, Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe, and Fox Square Park. I highly recommend Bibliomania.

Re: “Smoke Berkeley

Smoke Berkeley is really good. My favorite is the pulled pork sandwich with spicy vinagre sauce, with corn bread. And the pies are dreamy!

Re: “Boom Tic Boom

Although I only made it to half of the show, this was an amazing experience. The band was very skilled and in tune with each other, and provided a great atmosphere. I attended the concert to get content for a school paper, and I took notes for the majority of the performance; this did not alter the fact that I still noticed it was a wonderful show, the crowd was deeply into the music, and it was easy to get into the vibe and be a part of it all.

Re: “East Bay Spice Company

East Bay Spice Co. is charting a new frontier in the Bay Area's culinary cocktail scene. You'd need a constellation of stars to do it justice.

One must try: Ornament of the World. It's unlike anything else.
12 out of 10.

Deepak, Quilty, and the Blind Tiger dudes are sensory pioneers; prepare yourselves!

Re: “Oakland Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine Clinic

Mr. Varlack is setting the standard for teaching and healing. I went in to try acupuncture and ended up learning so much about my body and health.

Re: “Paco Collars

paco collars are the best collars I have seen, they will customise whatever you want, they are well made and long lasting, paco collars was a dream to work with. I look forward to ordering more stuff from them. I want new leashes and a belt to match my dogs collar.
