Oakland Tribune Outtakes

Notes from Oakland, Berkeley and in between

The Blue Candle stopped burning

By awoodall
Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008 at 4:37 pm in Fun Stuff to do in Oakland, Night Owl, Oakland nightlife, Old Oakland.

Someone blew out the flame on Dorsey’s Locker “Blue Candle” happy hour and spoken word special the club used to host twice monthly. The party’s over, at least for now.
But the “80s Party” is still on at Sweet’s Ballroom, 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. August 22. Admission is $30 but the winner of the $500 best dressed contest could chip in. 21+ only.  Too $hort is listed on flyers as a “special invited guest.” 
It’s Havanisimo every Saturday at La Taza de Cafe beginning with dinner served beginning 5 p.m and son Cubano featuring Cubanacan at 7 p.m.  Dance lessons are at 9:30 p.m. A DJ takes over at 10 p.m. 
The next day groove over to the Air Lounge for Jamboree Sundays, a chilled out drumming and drinks jam. The music is supposed to be salsa, merengue, soca, reggae and world beat.  And later — 7 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. —  to Soul Sundays at Arsimona.  (Thank you! Dancing on Sunday night!)
