Private room restaurant in East Bay or SF near BART

Lungomare in Jack London Square has a private room, though I'm not sure how many it'll fit. It may be too pricy, but worth a look?

Uptown or Old Oakland restaurant with tv(s)

The Forge in Jack London has huge TVs and I think their food is pretty solid (only had the pizza). Not sure if that's too far away?

Plank - JLSq Oakland

I haven't tried it, but some neighbors were complaining that the draft beer was overpriced. I'd be interested in hear what others think...

Acai bowls in SF?

So I have no idea what acai bowls are, but I just saw them on the menu at Oakland Juice and Co:


2014 Oakland Eat Real Festival, Sept 19 - 21, Jack London Sq.

I tried their kaffir lime/avocado pop and it was really good! We went at lunchtime today and yesterday--definitely busier today. Tried lamb poutine at Whole Beast and really enjoyed it--thought it was very good deal for $5. We also tried the Beef Pho rolls from Rice Paper Scissors--refreshing with a good kick and not heavy/fried like a lot of the other vendors. Nice to try stuff that wasn't from the East Bay, especially since we're new to the bay area.

Ah, good to know--must maximize our eating options!

We just moved to the area and are looking forward to checking this festival out--can't wait to see what people recommend!

Does anyone else watch "Master Chef UK, The Professionals" on BBC-America?

I'm pretty sure they've been repeating the same season for the past few weeks....The other contestants do show up eventually, and I found it got more interesting towards the end b/c they started doing things like working in high-end kitchens, etc.

Going to Barbados in 2 weeks--suggestions?

Going to Barbados in 2 weeks--suggestions?

I'm looking for recommendations of places to eat out or great grocery/markets to try in Barbados. We're staying in a house with a kitchen, so we'll be doing some cooking, but we'd love to have some recommendations on where to go out to eat. Affordable options would be great, as I've already got a list of some fancy places!
