Love Me Do, Hear, & See August 27th – September 2nd, 2018How did we make it to September, you might be wondering… or is that just me? The year has flown by and with the holiday season right around the corner, the rest of 2018 is going to finish just as quickly. The first official day of Fall might not kick off until late September, but the pumpkin spice latte is rolling out this week, so as far as I’m concerned, Fall is here. So, grab a PSL from the nearest Sbucks and check out what’s new and exciting around the Bay this week:
Monday August 27th
Something’s cooking up in Chinatown! The Wok Wiz Chinatown tour is offered on several times per week and is available as a walk only experience ($35/adult, $25/child), or ending with a dim sum tasting luncheon (if you’re going to do it, might as well do it right, right?) Each of the Wok Wiz tour leaders speak Cantonese as well as fluent English, making it a richer experience as you may visit a local herbalist, the fortune cookie factory, tea purveyor, or Chinese temple.

Calling all “Hamilton” fans! Before there was Alexander Hamilton (the musical version at least), there was “In the Heights,” the Tony award winning musical by actor/writer/composer extraordinaire, Lin Manuel Miranda. This is the last show of the 52nd season of Woodminster Summer Musicals. Woodminster Summer Musicals are performed under the stars at Woodminster Amphitheater, an open-air performance facility in Joaquin Miller Park high in the Oakland Hills. Come early, bring a picnic, and prepare for “Manuel Miranda magic,” as I call it.
