NIGHT OUT: Jack London Sqaure

A post shared by Jack London Square (@jacklondonsq) on

It's Friday (yay!), which means the weekend is upon us. It's also summer time so I know those who might otherwise opt to "Netflix and chill" on a Friday night may want to come out and play. 

Jack London Square is a great place to be on a warm night in Oakland. It's on the water and has so many fun, interesting and delicious spots to explore. 

I've put together a night out in Jack London Square. This "itinerary" is great for singles and/or couples looking to explore some new spots. Try it out, have some fun, wear shoes you can walk in! 

START  - Rosenblum Cellars

Celebrate the week, toast to weekend at Rosenblum Cellars tasting room. Rosenblum is most known for their Zinfandels. They offer wine tastings, glasses and bottles. It's steps from the Oakland Ferry Terminal and one of the most scenic options for happy hour.

EAT - Everette and Jones BBQ 

Zinfandel pairs well with BBQ. So once you've prepped your palette head over to get some BBQ from one of the most well known and beloved restaurants in Oakland. We recommend the sliced beef brisket with mac and cheese, mom's collard greens, and candy yams. But honestly you can't go wrong, so feel free to make your own decions. Whatever you do, don't forget the cornbread.  

PLAY - Plank Oakland

After all the wine and BBQ you might want to call it a night. But if you want to keep the party going walk down the block to Plank Oakland. There you can bowl, play video games, or grab another drink. After 9pm Plank is 21+ so you can have some good clean fun, in an adult environment.
