  • Flora
    Flora is known for its fashionable decor and trendy American cuisine. Don't expect to find any low-fat fare on Flora's menu — you'll need to be prepared to indulge a bit. You'll find a wonderful selection of drinks from Flora's full bar to top off your meal. Find ample room to enjoy yourself at Flora — this spot caters to large groups. Give the restaurant a call to reserve your table if you're headed over on a weeknight — it can get quite busy with the after-work crowds. In addition to street parking, there is a lot right around the corner, so finding a space shouldn't be an issue for drivers dining at the restaurant. Prices are a bit on the higher side, so this might be a good pick for a special night out. The dinner menu is a crowd pleaser at the restaurant, though breakfast and lunch are also served.

  • Good Vibrations
    The staff at Good Vibrations aren't salespeople—they're SESAs, or Sex Educator-Sales Associates. The title was invented by the store to reflect not only the rigorous training that the employees go through, but also the open and empowering attitude that they project. They encourage questions about the stock of romantic accouterments, and dispense safe, respectful advice on enhancing erotic play. For the SESAs, knowledge is a stepping stone to pleasure. They've even employed the same sexologist and historian—Dr. Carol Queen—for more than 20 years to host a regular "Ask the Doctors" class. Above all, the staff keeps a warm and welcoming shop—a characteristic that automatically distinguished Good Vibrations from its counterparts when it opened in 1977. Its philosophies have garnered the company plenty of press accolades since opening. Extending the positive, forward-thinking ethos beyond the shop's walls, the company has committed to environmentally friendly wares with its Ecorotic collection of natural lubricants—as well as eco-friendly packaging. The shop is also stocked with candles, costumes, and lingerie with the Oakland, Berkeley, and San Francisco locations carrying their largest supply of nightwear.

  • Museum of Children's Art
    The Museum of Children's Arts was originally founded in 1989 around the idea that creative, curious children build stronger communities. MOCHA continues to serve East Bay schools and neighborhoods today, teaching children as young as 18 months to channel creative energy while developing self-confidence and critical-thinking skills. MOCHA's mission is most apparent during open-studio times, which allow parents and children to work together and experiment with painting or creating traditional folk art. A teaching artist is on hand to provide guidance, assistance, and lectures on the differences between Rococo and Impressionistic landscapes. Although these hands-on experiences are an integral part of the museum, MOCHA also invites visitors to peruse its community-inspired exhibitions, such as its displays of original pieces created by students of the Oakland Unified School District.
