  • Urban Legends Cellars
    Five Myths Dispelled at Urban Legends Cellars Urban Legends Cellars operate in a pretty unlikely location for a winery: a former industrial building that sits right on the water. The Oakland winemakers work far from arable soil, but that doesn’t deter them. In fact, it spurs them on in their mission to dispel some of the myths and legends about what good wine is, and where it comes from. Below are five common fallacies about winemaking that the vintners Urban Legends are shattering: Wine must be made next to the vine its grapes grow on. While there’s something to be said for freshness, local soil can be as limiting as it is liberating. Grapes that grow well in one place may not thrive in another, and vice versa. Working outside the bounds of wine country, Urban Cellars’ team gets their grapes wherever they please, and always from a region that produces particularly fine specimens. Winemakers should focus on a single grape. It’s true that, given different seasons, soils, and fermentation methods, a single grape can produce a myriad of complex, nuanced flavors. This explains why many winemakers prefer to take a limited focus. That being said, it’s untrue that a broad approach that ropes in multiple grapes diminishes the quality of the winery’s final products. Urban Legends’ producers prove that, working with a variety of grapes seasonally to produce a wide and diverse range of wines that all taste good. Innovation has no place amongst fine wines. As far as being a wine-producing nation, America is a youngster. That may explain why some U.S. winemakers aren’t as tied to tradition as their European or Spanish counterparts are. That’s certainly the case for the folks at Urban Legends Cellars, who are constantly experimenting. By placing flavor above history, they’re able to produce some truly unusual and exciting wines. A rose can’t be complex. Oft reviled and dismissed, rose has made quite the comeback in recent years, going from a sickly-sweet soda pop equivalent to something at once dry and refreshing. Part and parcel of this revolution is Urban Legends Cellars’ Rosata di Barbera. It pays homage to its fruity forebears with a sweet nose, but boasts a smooth body with a citristy finish that doesn’t overwhelm the palate. Rieslings must be sweet. Another varietal known for its sweetness, Rieslings also get a bad rep. The team at Urban Legends seeks to change that, constantly sampling their Rieslings throughout fermentation to catch it at the exact moment when sweetness and acidity come into perfect balance. When they taste what they’re looking for, they immediately chill the whole batch, putting a halt to the fermentation process. The whole operation has to move pretty quickly, and requires confident, experienced hands and palates to pull off.

  • Marc 49
    Marc 49: A User’s Guide Wine Bar | Seasonal, Farm-Fresh Cuisine | Sophisticated Cocktails | Sunday Brunch | Heated Patio Sample Menu Appetizer: bacon deviled eggs with herbed crumbs and cornichons Entree: lamb moussaka with a parmesan-potato crust Cocktail: the French Imperialist with Hendrick's gin, Lillet Blanc, grapefruit-rose liqueur, hibiscus syrup, and rose water Where to Sit: The back patio is popular thanks to ample heaters that help keep the space cozy. The decor is nothing to scoff at either, with modern wood tables and chairs echoing the wood-paneled walls, some of which are decorated with colorful murals. When to Go: Try Marc 49 during happy hour (weekdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. to close) for discounted sangria, wine, cocktails, beer, and upscale bar bites.

  • Chabot Space & Science Center
    From the spectacular and grandiose, such as far-reaching telescopes that penetrate the cosmos and bring back crystal-clear views of the stars, to the most curious minutiae, think "space toilets" like those used by astronauts on the International Space Station & Chabot Space & Science Center captures the science, mystery, and grandeur of outer space in an interactive and educational setting. The big picture comes courtesy of the observatory's three high-powered telescopes, which grant Chabot with its domed silhouette and provide visitors a privileged view of the stars during daytime and evening viewings. Things narrow in scope once you enter the museum, where interactive exhibits zero in on the smaller curiosities of space and Earth's relationship to it. The aforementioned space toilet is a part of the Beyond Blastoff exhibit, where spacesuits, space gear, and space food paint a picture of an astronaut's day-to-day life. One Giant Leap: A Moon Odyssey gives visitors another taste of space exploration, this time by putting them behind the controls of the original Mercury space capsule, then puts them face to face with a 3.3-billion-year-old moon rock collected during the Apollo 15 mission. Weather becomes more than something to curse at for canceling the ball game or flooding a meteorologist's basement once visitors enter Bill Nye's Climate Lab. There, kids tasked with saving the Earth from storms and melting ice sheets are too busy developing top-secret energy-saving devices to realize they might be learning something. Chabot Space & Science Center also features shows such as LaserMania, a classic-rock-fueled spectacle where light and sound, a 360-degree cocoon of cutting-edge laser lights set to music by The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and U2, specifically, team up for an explosive sensory experience

  • Oakland Museum of California
    California is too vast and diverse a state to capture through just one medium. That's why Oakland Museum of California combines art, history, and natural science collections—more than 1.8 million objects total—to tell the state’s story. Organized around themes of land, people, and creativity, the art gallery showcases more than 70,000 works from the 19th century through present day, ranging from paintings and sculptures to new media. Encompassing more than 100,000 artifacts, including several thousand bird eggs, the natural sciences gallery spotlights seven particular landscapes, including Yosemite and Mount Shasta. The history gallery includes more than 2,200 objects that trace major periods in the state's history, tying together the lives of the indigenous people, incursions by Spanish settlers, and the giggling mad dash of the gold rush. In a nod to the history of Tinsel town, the interactive Creative Hollywood station lets visitors create an animation, add sound effects to movies, and forget a personal assistant’s birthday. Forming the roof of each level, verdant gardens separate the galleries, while more greenery and sculptures beautify the museum's outdoor roof gardens and courtyards. The museum uses more outdoor space to hosts its Friday Nights @ OMCA, a family-friendly market full of live music, dance lessons, and local cuisine. Local and seasonal ingredients, meanwhile, flavor the dishes available in the museum's Blue Oak café. The café doubles as a residency for jazz bassist Ron Crotty, a founder of The Dave Brubeck Quartet, who grooves his way through jazz standards every Friday.

  • Habitat for Humanity
    Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1976 with the goal of building homes in partnership with families across the country in need of affordable housing. Since then, the organization has grown into a behemoth of goodwill in more than 70 countries, bringing housing financing to villages in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, promoting sustainable building and energy efficiency, and responding to overwhelming need during natural disasters. But the organization is best known for its home-building projects. When Habitat for Humanity builds a home, it enlists the help of the family who will be living there. They dedicate their time and sweat to completing the project alongside volunteers, neighbors, donors, churches, and other supporters, engendering a spirit of renewal and fellowship. Once they move in, families pay a no-profit mortgage. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving fund that promotes the construction of more homes. In 2009, Habitat launched the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, whose holistic community development approach promotes construction, repair, and rehabilitation of affordable housing in partnership with low-income families in markets hit hard by foreclosures. To date, Habitat has helped build and repair more than 600,000 houses and served more than three million people across the globe, welcoming people of all races, religions, and nationalities to partner in its mission as a nonprofit Christian housing organization. Since embarking in 1986, the East Bay/Silicon Valley division of Habitat has put roofs over the heads of over 380 families in Alameda, Contra Costa, and Santa Clara Counties.
