Re: “Icon Ultra Lounge

Amazing and total mix-it-up venue; though you never know what event is going on when you show up, they always deliver, the security is fabulous, the staff is courteous and inviting, and the decor is freakin awesome. The have 2 different rooms you can dance in and one whole bar room all equipt with gold couches and hand painted coffee tables all over (they even have cute stenciled F8 logos in the corners!). Even in the backroom, which is smaller, the DJ is heard completely and without any clash between the the smaller and the larger rooms and it looks like they actually take care of the decor; there's a giant mural on the back wall that is apparently changed seasonally. I would totally recommend going here on a night with the bands (Tuesdays,) or for Housepitality (free champagne from 9-10) or on Saturdays when Trapp City is hosting the evening.

Re: “Castro Valley Library

My favorite place to sit and write. Nicely lit, decent chairs, big windows looking out to flowing trees.

Re: “Owl & Company Bookshop

The phone number is wrong, it is 510.788.5821. Also, it is NOT a "little" shop but the largest by space and titles on the Avenue and one of the largest used bookshops in the EAST BAY, COVERING ALL SUBJECTS. Also the web page is down now but will be back up soon.

You can see a short video of the shop at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EC_WdLmMbc

Re: “Harpsichord/Vocal Recital & Reception

San Francisco Bach Choir’s Artistic Director and harpsichordist Corey Jamason and mezzo-soprano Danielle Reutter-Harrah present an intimate recital of music by Henry Purcell, Domenico Scarlatti, and François Couperin, set against gorgeous views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. The performance will be followed by a wine and cheese reception. There’s no better way to warm up on a wintry Sunday afternoon!
This Recital and Wine Reception will help to support the Choir’s ambitious programming and outreach efforts for this and future seasons.
Please note this event has been incorrectly listed. It will be at the Conference Center at Fort Mason Center. For further information and tickets, please visit www.sfbach.org

Re: “Portal

Awesome food and atmosphere. The owner is incredibly accommodating and conscientious of the guest. Love the variety of food and multiple beers. The patio on a sunny day is THE place to be!

Re: “Ippo Ramen Popup

Delicious with great presentation. Really lived up to traditional Japanese Ramen. The marriage of the soup and noodle was spot on! Glad to see that Oakland has another fantastic POPUP catering to traditional Asian food cuisine. Keep up it up Ramen Man!

Re: “ParaNorman 3D

My son’s birthday is tonight and he wants to watch a movie, so one of my employees at DISH suggested ParaNorman. I think it is going to be perfect. With all the Halloween stuff that goes on around this time I know that he will love seeing some zombies! I am even going to grab the 3D version for him since this is his special day. Now that we have the DISH Hopper we never have to suffer the weather or ridiculous fees for a good 3D flick. I just get home and we start enjoying our night right away.

Re: “Sushi Sho

Sushi Sho is the best Sushi in the Bay Area. It is very traditional Japanese, so people unfamiliar with Japanese culture might find it too simple or too austere. Nonetheless the quality is unbeatable. As my Japanese friend says: it's the closest to being in Japan as you can get in the Bay Area.

Re: “Mr. Mopps’ Children’s Books & Gifts

Perfect place for toys and books for all ages A great range of classic and new products that cover all interests and abilities. This is a treasure chest for playthings that are well worthwhile. Easy to find and park and browse to locate that special gift for every child (and adult) on your list. A great store.

Re: “Morcom Rose Garden

I hope I,m in the right place, or was. I lived on Piedmont Ave while attending CCAC (Now CCa), in Oakland, and my room-mate & I wandered off and found ourselves in this beautiful Garden of roses. We were looking for Mary B. Best's Ice cream 'hideaway'. We -being art students-were 'lost' for hours. What a wonderful way to lose the day. I believe we tried to find it several more times, only to be successful once. This was in 1978 or 1979, so perhaps we were sniffing too much 'rose dust'. I hope it was real, as this 'roasis' was just a few blocks from several major roadways. One our best college memories!

Re: “Soul's Restaurant

My grandmother passed away a long time ago... but my family and I swear that on Sunday's SOUL'S somehow wakes her from the Grave to cook... SOUL'S is a wonderful place to eat... Awesome food, Great Service and just as SoulFul as Sexual Chocolate...

Make sure you have had nothing before going to the Sunday Brunch. it's pure Gluttony. They have large tables and Chairs that make you feel comfy too... I like that. It's about $20 for the all you can eat sunday brunch... it's SOOOO worth it!!!

Re: “Donut Savant

This may be the best donut that I've ever eaten. This cute shop, demurely situated between a falafal shop and a junk store, and conveniently at the mouth of a 19th St Bart station entrance, keeps me always wanting another. Firstly, the donut I can only describe as "cake" but it doesn't leave that heavy, "why did I just eat that" feeling in your stomach. It only leaves you wanting more! A sucker for chocolate, the first donut I had was the chocolate glaze. Unlike the Krispy Kreme, or Dunkin' style glaze, Donut Savant has a thick, Julia Child-style dark chocolate ganache spread atop each cake donut. It is unreal how delicious it is! The other styles and flavors I have tried are similarly delicious. I can also attest to the delightfulness of the seasonal pumpkin donut.
