Looking for a refreshing afternoon snack? Get a natural and healthy sugar rush from Super Juiced Oakland. They have the best variety of juices and smoothies and they are packed full of good-for-you super foods. They even make their own house-made coconut and almond milk. I love that they’re bringing healthy eating options to Oakland. The drinks at Super Juiced are so yummy. It’s a must try on a beautiful, summer day!
Bitte, one of my favorite eco-friendly kids brands that I talked about here and curated a collection for here, is having a summer pop up shop in downtown Oakland today. Finally, you can shop the most popular items from their amazing collection of sustainable toys, meet the founder in person and snack on some treats from Miss Jones.

Oakland Crush is a gorgeous new neighborhood wine shop in the Jack London district of Oakland. With a tasting bar pouring new and old world wines, from local and faraway, you’re sure to sip a wine that you must take home with you! The space is modern and the staff is very knowledgable if you’re shopping for something to pair with dinner and need help finding the perfect wine.

Alameda’s Crown Memorial State Beach is one of our favorite, and free destinations, to head to on the weekend. Pack a picnic and bring sand toys for the kids to indulge in a friendly sand castle building competition. Alameda beach is one of the most popular places for kiteboarding so enjoy watching adventurists pass by, or consider trying the board sport yourself. Information for rentals is here. Whether you go on a beautiful overcast or sunny day, don’t forget the rosé.

Every Wednesday in July, Pizzaiolo is hosting movie night! Enjoy popular movies, projected from their cozy back patio on a cool summer night, while eating spaghetti, of course! This weekend you’ll want to make your reservation for dinner to ensure your spot for Wednesday. The action packed movie Django is playing this week.
And for a bonus activity: The Rowing Masters Regionals are happening on Lake Merritt tomorrow, July 24th. Spend a day on the lake, cheering on the rowers and watching the races!
