Awaken Cafe Grand Opening Party, Artist Reception, and First Friday 

When: Fri., March 2, 7 p.m.-12 a.m. 2012
Price: free

Those who lamented the loss of Awaken Cafe's brick-and-mortar space can breathe a sigh of relief, followed by a celebratory sip of Fourbarrel coffee: After operating from a modest espresso cart since last June, owner Cortt Dunlap reopened the cafe at 1429 Broadway in late February, and patrons can once again imbibe both caffeinated and alcoholic beverages. Awaken celebrates the new space with a grand opening party on Friday, March 2, where Balkan-Romani brass band Brass Menazeri plays live tunes and artist Janine Brown's art show, Open Spaces (featuring painted paper collages), debuts in what Dunlap calls the first of many First Friday events. 7 p.m.-midnight, free. 510-863-1440 or
