October 23, 2009: The Friday File

on October 23, 2009

You made it, Oakland! Happy Friday!

  • Residents in Montclair are celebrating this weekend the U.S. Postal Service’s decision to keep their Montclair Village station open for business. The community lobbied hard to keep their PO boxes in the face of office closures nationwide and they are celebrating Saturday from 11am to 2:30pm.
  • You have 8 days to get your costume in gear for Halloween! If you’re short on ideas, or just looking for a good hay ride, Dunsmuir House is holding its annual Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Patch this Saturday, 11am-4pm, with rides, polka tunes, pumpkin carving, brats, beer, and good old fashioned fun to entertain both kids and adults.
