I went to Yoshi's for my birthday, wanted to add it to this thread:

Not only was it great cos we got to take off our shoes and stuff, but the California Roll was delicious and the Amtrak goes right past the window, which I LOVED.

@d@ml (nordicskilla), Tuesday, 1 June 2004 14:50 (9 years ago) Permalink

eh probably not, looks like I don't get to book the trip after all, the corporate office wants to handle it. Thanks though!

My brother does not seem interested in the prospect of exploring the East Bay. :(

adam. (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 16:56 (9 years ago) Permalink

Also - he wants to go and see Electrelane. TWICE. :( :(

adam. (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 18 August 2004 16:56 (9 years ago) Permalink

what would you realy show him in oakland though? I like Oakland but it's not very fascinating to a visitor, I don't think. It's charms are revealed over time to people who live here. You should take him to the Ruby Room or RADIO though because it is all indie and shit there and that's all he cares about.

make him take BART to fremont and leave him there if you're feeling antagonistic.

Can we go to The Oaks?

Alex has been there, I think.

I have not been to the Oaks, but I'd totally check it out next time I'm up there.

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:22 (9 years ago) Permalink

I really miss walking down to the Piedmont Ave Barney's on Sunday with my NYTimes....

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:28 (9 years ago) Permalink

move back!

kyle (akmonday), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:30 (9 years ago) Permalink

I have set myself a salary amount that would lure me back to the Bay Area. Who knows. The main reason that I would move back, has moved on :(

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:32 (9 years ago) Permalink

boo on her!

kyle (akmonday), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:33 (9 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I've been to the Oaks Card Club a bunch of times. It's fun, but it's hard to win money (plus you have to pay for time.)

Alex in SF (Alex in SF), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:34 (9 years ago) Permalink

But wait NOT that Oak's Card Club?!?! Did they totally remodel it or something? Or is there another one in Emeryville all the sudden?

Alex in SF (Alex in SF), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:35 (9 years ago) Permalink

Oh wait that green building just has an ad, it's not the club. Okay nevermind.

Alex in SF (Alex in SF), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:37 (9 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I couldn't find a picture of the building, just an ad.

Howard Wine (nordicskilla), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:46 (9 years ago) Permalink

The hofbrau is good btw (it's no Tommy's Joint, but really what is.) I imagine the tournaments could be fun too (but they tend to have re-buys which kind of suck.)

Alex in SF (Alex in SF), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:51 (9 years ago) Permalink

I was just in the Hofbrau an hour ago.

Howard Wine (nordicskilla), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:52 (9 years ago) Permalink

What is Tommy's Joint?

Howard Wine (nordicskilla), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:52 (9 years ago) Permalink

Delicious.

Michael White (Hereward), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:53 (9 years ago) Permalink

It's a bar/hofbrau on Van Ness and Geary. It's quite good and they have an amazing (and shockingly cheap) selection of imported beers.

Alex in SF (Alex in SF), Friday, 8 October 2004 20:54 (9 years ago) Permalink
