Notes from Oakland, Berkeley and in between

More entertainment news

Thursday, May 14th, 2009 at 5:00 pm in Fun Stuff to do in Oakland, Night Owl.

And here’s some more news. Bacheeso’s has been open on Grand Avenue for a few weeks with a patio carved from the facade of a derilict liquor store. Speaking of patios, Oasis is closed for remodeling following a long back-and-forth with the city over code issues.
Meanwhile, Levende East has a new cocktail menu to match the warm nights, including the Fresa (La Fresa in Spanish), Purple Haze, French 69, Chipotle Fizz, Red Chile Caipirinha and the gloriously named Miss Piggy. They’re also serving Sangria and a late-night weekend menu for night owls like us.  On the other side of town, comes this news:
3830 (“3832”) MacArthur Blvd. (APN: 030 -1912-014-00)
Proposal: To establish a 2,054 square-foot restaurant (“Rico’s Grill) with a 690-square-foot dining room. The restaurant would serve beer & wine and close no later than 10:00PM. The full staff report has more info.

    Also, Lanesplitter Pizza is taking over the old pizza place on Lake Park, across from the Grand Lake Farmer’s Market.

    If you’re talking about the place near the Serenader and Quik Stop, I will miss it in a way. But not much. It is time for something a little classier to pick that block up a bit.

  3. Dave C. Says:

    It’s near the Serenader, but not near the Quik Stop (Leaning Tower of Pizza is the one near the Quik Stop. The place that closed was called Four Star Pizza or something like that.) The pizza wasn’t actually THAT terrible, but the joint definitely could have used some sprucing up. It’s a pretty small spot, so I doubt it will become as much of a destination as the Temescal location seems to be. We’ll see. I heard at this morning’s bike-to-work festivities that the old 3-day blind place on Grand is also going to finally become something new, but the person who told me didn’t know what was moving in there.

  4. Dave C. Says:

    It just occurred to me that maybe you meant Kwik Way, not Quik Stop? If so, then yes, that’s the place. Sorry for the confusion.

    Let’s Go Oakland! is a group of A’s fans, business people, labor leaders, and government officials who are committed to keeping the A’s in Oakland.

    But it’s about much more than just building a ballpark. As part of a larger plan to build new hotels, restaurants, and cafes, a new destination stadium will attract visitors from all over the region. Like AT&T Park in Mission Bay did for San Francisco, our ballpark will be a catalyst to bring new investment and jobs to Oakland, kick-starting the next phase of our community’s successful economic development.

    If you support Oakland — if you support the A’s — we hope you’ll stand with us. Sign our petition, and urge Major League Baseball and team ownership to keep the A’s in Oakland!
