Where is this in Oakland? Challenge 1

on April 16, 2012

Oakland North is introducing a new guessing game. The eight images above have been carefully shot, giving you just enough information to try to guess where and what this is.

Aside from the photos, here are three clues that will help you wrack your brain:

1. On most days here, you can shoot the breeze with the ever-friendly Howard.

2. The water isn’t dirty, it’s made from barley.

3. You can hang out here while getting your laundry done next door.

If you know the answer, be sure to comment below. And be on the lookout for additional guessing games as part of our “Where is this in Oakland?” series.

Good luck!
