Oakland is growing by leaps and bounds and I love to let people know that I am an Oakland girl! With new events and people joining us...I always love to say that I Hella Love Oakland!
Oakland's hipster population is really growing and the new entertainment and restaurants are clear proof of that!
On Tuesday, July 8th new restaurant Shakewell opened on Lakeshore Avenue and created a nice little intimate buzz! There were some notables there from Michael DeFlorimonte to the Mayor of Oakland!
Mayor Quan was rocking her Oakland A's at Shakewell!
Hanging out with the new co-owner of Shakewell!
Of course your ClassyBlackGirl, Sharelle D. Lowery was in the mix meeting people from all over the San Francisco Bay Area to check out this new spot!...on Instagram straight flexin'! Tim Nugent is a gorgeous sweetheart!
I really appreciated the diverse staff and beautiful people that I was surrounded by it was tons of fun and I cannot wait to go back another time with more of my girlfriends!...or my babe du jour!
I was joined by my homeboy from the Food Network, Chris Walker, who is here from New Orleans! So if he said that the food was good (and he did), it was!
The hand crafted drinks were also very good and they were flowing, my favorite was the Sangria that I had at least 3 glasses of!! I love the central Oakland location, that I can still be in the OAK and get a really awesome Mediterranean flair for food and a multicultural group of people!
These lamb skewers totally did it for me!...and the tattoo didn't hurt either! *wink*
Just another great day in Oakland! >>> Check Out MORE in Oakland!
