The Half Orange’s Two-Year Anniversary 

No reservations.

When The Half Orange (3340 E. 12th St., Oakland) first opened in the Fruitvale, a restaurant specializing in burgers, sausages, and craft beer may not have seemed like a logical fit for a working-class Latino neighborhood. But here we are two years later, and it’s hard to imagine the Fruitvale Public Market without this reasonably priced, community-oriented spot at its heart. This Saturday, the restaurant and beer garden will celebrate its two-year anniversary all day with music, a brand new beer brewed especially for the occasion by Ale Industries (a Fruitvale neighbor), and Santa Maria-style slow-smoked tri-tip sandwiches (served with pico de gallo and a side of white beans cooked in bacon fat) — all in keeping with summertime’s easygoing, chill-on-the-patio vibe. No reservations necessary.
