North Oakland Now 7.06.09

on July 6, 2009

Welcome to the week, North Oakland.  With the Fourth of July debauchery behind us, it might be a little difficult to launch back into the swing of things.  Here’s a suggestion that might make Mondays a little easier to stomach:  Jack London Square will be hosting Musical Mondays, which means you can  play board games (chess, checkers, scrabble) with friends and significant others while being serenaded by live bands.  5:30-8, at the foot of Broadway.  Today is also a day of celebration for Montclair, as their library is re-opening after several months of shuttered doors.  Check out the Trib article here. And finally, our staff checked out several Ethiopian restaurants on Telegraph; whether you’re looking for a succulent meat dish, like Tibs, or an all-vegan option, we did the dirty work for you.  Read it on our new food blog here.
