Drawing from two decades of experience, Glass Tek’s savvy technicians restore or repair all automotive glass onsite at their shop or at their customer’s home or office with their mobile service. Their expertise also extends to headlight restoration, window tinting, and the installation of windshield wipers. If windows are ascending and descending slowly, they can fix that, too.
The ASE-certified mechanics at Alameda Oakland Tire-Brake & Muffler maintain automotive health with oil changes, repairs, and inspections. Punch-card carriers are privy to a trio of one- to two-hour oil changes, during which mechanics extract old oil, replace it with standard or synthetic libations, and listen as the lubricated car parts hum "Happy Trails" in unison. Punch cards come with additional free benefits, such as tire rotations to prolong wheel performance, free flat-tire repairs, and battery recharges and system analyses. Additionally, certified mechanics check all fluid levels and perform a 50-point inspection to scour the car for signs of malfunction, damage, or broken windows held together by hope.
M&H Limo and Transportation’s experienced drivers navigate an expansive fleet of luxury vehicles that transport passengers to any occasion in style. Rides include Lincoln Town Cars, Escalades and GMC luxury SUVs, and Excursion and Hummer stretch limos. Passengers in these swanky transports relax as they journey to airports, parties, and executive business functions with a degree of class usually reserved for society’s elite or the dog from Frasier. M&H Limo and Transportation also uses its fleet to shuttle clients on special tours of such locales as San Francisco and Napa and Sonoma.
Segway of Oakland harbors a fleet of off-road Segway x2s and street-friendly Segway i2s, which renters mount for city tours, lessons, and offsite events. Both tours and lessons begin with a video overview of segway basics to acquaint the rider and the ridden. Tours then traverse the city, with guides sharing historical tidbits on Oakland’s oak-ruled past on a route that hits Jack London Square, the downtown sector, and the shores of Lake Merritt. Group lessons jet through skill-building exercises in parking lots and on bike paths. After building confidence, students graduate to higher speeds and more varied terrains, such as bridges and grassy fields, and lessons culminate in an independent ride. Segway of Oakland can also enrich team-building events for companies or exceptionally competitive families with segway demonstrations.
Despite their determinedly of-the-moment sound, Redfoo and Sky Blu are carrying on a long pop lineage: the former is Motown founder Berry Gordy's son, the latter his grandson. As red-hot electropop duo LMFAO, the uncle-nephew pairing electrifies dance floors with manic odes to party life. The 2012 Sorry for Party Rocking tour explodes with fan favorites such as "Party Rock Anthem" and newer hits such as "Sexy and I Know It," which has a bouncy swagger that dominated the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 28 weeks. Meanwhile, the band parades in neon animal prints amid backup dancers, bobbing beneath giant robot heads, tossing inflatables into the crowd, and creating a spectacle Metro Weekly calls "enormously entertaining."
