Oakland Tribune Outtakes

Notes from Oakland, Berkeley and in between

Star gazing instead of navel gazing

Oakland has more opportunities to gaze at the stars since we do not battle the evening fog that rolls in all too often in San Francisco, possibly leading to the persistent navel gazing there noted by East Bay Express art critic DeWitt Cheng in a recent (hilarious, I thought) column. To take advantage of our relatively fogless, albeit only occasionally warm, summer evenings Dancing Under the Stars has been extended for a bit longer. Disco night is Sept. 18 with Hustle lessons and music, and the Rumba and Cha Cha are on Sept. 25.
Yes! Dance your heart out disco babes and Latin kings. Oh, excuse me. Anyway…
And since our real summer is starting, the weather should be nice for the Oct. 1 Night Bazaar from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Jack London Square (I like Piazza Jack London better, though). More on that later. For now just enjoy the evening preferably with a glass of wine and a good view.
