Love Me Do, Hear, & SeeWhat's Happening this week. Summer is in full swing and with it comes the onslaught of festivals, theatre, and EVERYTHING under the stars – not to mention the ridiculous amount of Hallmark TV movies I’m currently in the midst of binging. But with weather like this, there’s no excuses for wasting your days off and free evenings at home on the couch. So, pack a bag, grab a friend, and try something new this week. Don’t know where to get started? I’ve got you covered…
Monday June 18th
Join Ubuntu Theater Project at the Waterfront Playhouse & Conservatory for free play readings every Monday in June, so you’ve still got two more chances to catch a show! All you have to do is reserve your seat. This Monday, check out "Tiny Fires" by Aimee Suzara. The story follows best friends Sugarpie and Trixie, two young women who live as scavengers at the edge of a landfill in the Philippines.

Tuesdays were made for Trivia and the good news is you can find it at Gilman Brewing Company in Berkeley, every Tuesday night from 7:30-9:30. Bring a group of friends or come in and join a team! It's free to join and there will be prizes for the top teams, as well as a round where you can win penny beers. A food truck will be on site, too, but outside food is also welcome. Cheers!

This won’t be the first time I’ve recommended Moonlight Comedy Under the Stars. However, on Wednesdays at the Uptown, comedy is just the start to your night. The free weekly comedy show runs from 7:30-9 pm, followed immediately by karaoke night! What could be better than a full night of entertainment and all for the price of NADA?
Get your free tickets for the comedy here and be sure to stick around for singing afterwards: https://www....f=efbeventtix

This Thursday, in between dinner at La Penca and dessert at Tucker’s, join the members of To Live and Write in Alameda at Books Inc. for their collaborative presentation of, Storied Stories. This is a “grown up” story hour, complete with wine and nibbles. Twelve 5-minute stories by twelve local writers and all about one local Victorian house. Spooky, eh? The event kicks off at 7 pm and ends with a Q&A with the writers…and more wine and nibbles.

Is there anything more romantic than a dance under the stars?

It’s Pride Month, ya’ll and you know what that means – public nudity. Just kidding (not really).
