Had a quick lunch of shrimp tacos at Xolo in Uptown Oakland near the gallery.  Lots of cool options dining and entertainment options in this fast growing part of town and  also two of my favorite buildings, for their art deco style are located in Uptown, The Oakland Floral Depot (built in 1930) and The Fox Theatre (originally opened in 1931 with restoration work from 199-2001).  The Fox Theatre made it’s comeback debut in 2009, after being closed for a little over 40 years.  Since than it has hosted a number of great artists, most recently Grammy Award Winning Best New Artist Fun, and Grammy nominated Alabama Shakes will be performing there in March. It’s a really cool venue to watch a show, I’ve regrettingly missed Nas and M.I.A. perform there…oh well next time.

Fluently lived,

K.
