Many people stopped by the "Help Us Re-open the Oaks Theater" booth at the Solano Avenue Stroll on Sept. 8, 2013.

YMTC produced a stunning "West Side Story" last year, and is a really first-rate group. IRead More don't know enough about the economics of theatre spaces, but a modern remodeling with a 500-seat space would be a welcome, and large, venue. Maybe it's time to musicalize Albany's founding myth (the "garbage war" with Berkeley) as a main stage production...

Finally! This theater should have reopened last year. Glad to see some action/activity. I thinkRead More YMTC will be a really addition to the neighborhood and some new uses for this grand old theater will enhance its popularity. How about adding some beer/wine service and discount movies? Jerri Holan, FAIA

Great! We could also use a dinner theater and food & wine service.
The outcome appears unfavorable for this young visitor to the Berkeley Chess School booth at the annual Solano Avenue Stroll on Sept. 8, 2013.

what a great time and perfect weather... most amazing to me is also for how many people there are,Read More you can still navigate Solano fairly easily. Not like your average street faire where you have to push your way through to anywhere

Thanks for the great article, Euna. It was a night of fun surprises. Got my facts wrong the firstRead More time around. Librarian Vivian Jaquette added a talent show to the summer line-up about 7 years ago. If you liked Euna's film clip, there's more where that came from!! http://youtu.be/oPzVScm6lXU

I loved the books, but this show is painful in the gender stereotypes of parenting. I do not knowRead More any dads who are this clueless, arrogant, and offensive. Please don't go. Save your money. And contact BACT and tell them why you are passing. They have a history of turning a blind eye to awful gender stereotypes. Let's encourage them to take a closer look at the work they perform.

Parking suggestion for the Dublin St Patricks day Festival. I would recommend parking in the ValleyRead More Bible Church parking lot and walk north on the bike trail that is across the street, parallel to the creek. Walk underneath the I-580 freeway. The festival is right on the other side!! No fighting for parking!

This parade is well worth going to. Did you know Alameda's own Lincoln Middle School band hasRead More marched in this parade in the past and even won an award? The band was photographed and featured in SF Magazine marching in the parade. This was under the direction of now-retired band director "Mr. D.C." . It was an amazing experience being an adult chaperone of the band marching in this parade and hearing the roar of the huge crowd as the students marched past and seeing the beautiful costumes, floats and dragon dance. Go earlly to find a good viewing spot and enjoy the parade of your lifetime! It is an experience you won't forget.

When our son was young, we went numerous times. It is lots of fun but take earplugs as theRead More firecrackers can be awfully loud, especially for very little kids.

My family listens to PHC every week. We will be sure to listen for you Bill!

Wow you are so lucky to be able to showcase your talents on PHC. Every Saturday at 5:00 PM I retireRead More to my garage to listen to the show here in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

We caught Bill sitting in with David Bromberg at the Freight and Salvage last weekend. He wasRead More amazing.

Also of note is that the sculpture will also include an additional coat that should make removingRead More graffiti much easier.

What a great project - Kudos to the restorers and to the Arts Committee for bringing back a belovedRead More landmark. I was on the Waterfront Committee when we voted for the project from California Coastal Commission funding - it was loved by everyone then and still is! Thanks again, Jerri Holan

This show was as good or better than a production I saw at Oberlin college! Awesome job!

Hilarious and poignant. Definitely worth a second visit. To me it was even funnier the second night!
