Love Me Do, Hear, & See October 22nd – 28th, 2018Can you hear it? The holiday tunes lurking the distance, the jingle jangle of jingle bells… I know it’s coming, but first, I’d like to make it through Halloween. Even if you don’t plan on celebrating the night of the living dead this year, there are plenty of other events happening in and around town for you to partake in this week!
From pumpkin carving to bar hopping to a good old-fashioned game of Checkers, what’s on your to-do list this week? Here’s ours!
Monday October 22nd
What’s your karaoke jam? Don’t worry, White Horse Bar has you covered. Oakland’s White Horse Bar has quite the reputation when it comes to karaoke. Boasting the “largest karaoke library in the Bay Area”, White Horse Bar hosts karaoke every Monday and Tuesday, cover-free.
Even if you don't want to sing yourself (though you’ll have to come up with some new excuse since they clearly DO have the song you want), come out to support, and cheer for your friends who do have the guts.

You’re probably already familiar with the collection of games at HobNob, but have you checked out a Board Game Night at The Local? Join the gamers for a fun night of games – from Chess to boardgames to whatever the kids are playing these days. This is one of my new favorite spots in town and the atmosphere is always welcoming! Plus, there’s food and beer and wine by the glass, so come early or stay late.

Wednesday October 24th
I don’t know about you, but I need a good pick-me-up halfway through the week. Well, I’ve got one for you! Every Wednesday, catch the Late Mic with Frosty Nugs, a weekly comedy showcase that features comics from all over the Bay Area! Come for the showcase which kicks off at 9, and stay for the open mic which immediately follows the headliner. BONUS: They serve complimentary Puerto Rican food by W.E.P.A. First come, first serve, and if you miss out, there’s still plenty more delights for purchase, as well as a full bar.

Time to get your pinball on! If you haven’t taken a trip to the Pinball Museum on Webster recently, you might as well make your next one for a Tuesday or Thursday. The Museum’s “Two for Twenty” deal is good only on those days that start with T. For just $20, two people can play unlimited games, all day long. Even if you just stop in after work for a couple hours, you can consider it quite the deal!
