  • Sylvan Learning Burlingame
    The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews. Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

  • Chop Bar
    Chop Bar: A User's Guide Local Ingredients | Seasonal, Gourmet Menu | Local Wine on Tap | Stylish Design with Reclaimed Materials | Custom Cocktails Sample Menu: Weekday breakfast: housemade gravlax on a bagel with red onion, capers, and cream cheese Weekend brunch: chorizo scramble Lunch: grilled-pork bánh mì Snack: house-pickled vegetables, or Rocky Point oysters Dinner: charcuterie platter, followed by oxtail poutine or butternut-squash risotto with kale Cocktail: Ginger Greyhound with Rain organic vodka, grapefruit juice, and a float of ginger beer Vocab Lesson: Sit and stay a while—"chop bar" is not another term for a steak house, but rather, a West African slang term for the type of roadside eatery that doubles as a neighborhood hangout. When to Visit: In the summer or fall for the annual pig roast. What's Local? The ingredients: From seafood to bread to coffee to wine, everything comes from nearby. At Chop Bar, if it's not housemade, it's from a local farm, creamery, bakery, or roaster. The artwork: Every piece on the wall is an original, and it comes from the hands of an artist in the community. The impact: When you purchase an organic cotton Chop Bar T-shirt, all proceeds go to support Oakland schools. Press Box One Check, Please! Bay Area reviewer was initially drawn in by the extensive, local wine list, and raved, "If I lived in a loft around the corner I would probably be at Chop Bar night and day." Another praised the atmosphere and said, "The cocktails are a must," while the final reviewer described the environment as "cozy" and the cuisine as "comfort food at its best." SF Gate called Chop Bar "communal," "refined," and "comforting yet casual," lauding the signature burger and the oxtail poutine in particular. SF Gate, in a review titled "Chop Bar is a Treat in Jack London Square," said, "The wait staff is a combination of laid back and attentive. The chatter and eclectic music layer in a warm vibe. It's inviting. It's comfortable. And it's got style … But the best part is the food is good, too." While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Check out the state's science, history, and art at the Oakland Museum of California (1000 Oak Street), located just a 10-minute walk away. After: Catch a new flick at Regal Jack London Stadium 9 (100 Washington Street).

  • 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.

  • Lovesick - SF Bay Area
    How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field? _ You know how weddings shows are terrible? Well, we decided to change that. In addition to music, films, and photography, we are the creators and producers of The Lovesick Expo, a wedding event proudly representing the unrepresented. Lovesick is the nation's largest alternative wedding expo bringing together cool and unique wedding vendors that appeal to couples having trouble finding their voice represented in the traditional and often high-pressure wedding market. The ever-growing show is expanding year after year thanks to our partnership with Offbeat Bride! For our 2015 shows, we united more than 3,000 cool attendees and vendors in Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Seattle, Denver, LA, and the San Francisco Bay Area. For information about the Lovesick Expo, check out www.lovesickexpo.com._ When and how did you first develop a passion for your work? Lovesick is the creation of Tom Wright and Jon Holmes – two friends who bring their diverse passions and a ton of wedding experience together to bring your event to life. Our journey began as "Hi-Society Entertainment," a word-of-mouth DJ duo that soon had Tom and Jon live-spinning at seventy weddings each year for clients that were looking for something beyond the traditional. Throughout the seasons, we found that we kept seeing the same small handful of vendors at every wedding. It became clear to us that our clientele was actively seeking like-minded, progressive wedding professionals. So, we decided to produce an event that put all of those original vendors and couples in the same room at the same time -- The Lovesick Expo. In 2011, we brought another love of ours, filmmaking, to the wedding world, utilizing Jon's shooting and editing abilities to create wedding films unlike anything out there. We built up the team by recruiting the most talented people we know so that even more couples will get to experience what a truly fresh, creative event can feel like. And now with the addition of our photography services, Lovesick has become an eclectic one-stop-shop for those looking to challenge the wedding mainstream. We work mainly in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Brooklyn, but often travel throughout the East Coast and to destination events around the globe.

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.

Vocab Lesson Moussaka: a Greek casserole that’s typically layered with lamb and eggplant and topped with béchamel sauce. While You’re in the Neighborhood: Pick up an all-natural remedy for a common cold or a severe case of mortality at Homestead Apothecary (486 49th Street), a boutique herb shop specializing in tinctures, teas, and essential oils.
