What I love most about residing in the Bay Area is the plethora of culturally rich events that are offered year round.Though outsiders may view the Bay as a techie hotspot more than anything else, us natives are far removed from that lifestyle and instead thrive in supporting our local businesses and entertainment. With weather slightly more mild than LA, but the socially consciousness of D.C., the Bay is an interesting melting pot of countless subcultures and communities.
Which is why these smaller, meaningful events can be challenging to find. This weekend, all my searching paid off as I attended the Black Vines Winetasting Event in Oakland.
The event took place at the Joyce Gordon Art Gallery in downtown Oakland, which was showcasing pieces by artist Brian Keith Thomas.
The event was enjoyable, but if I had to provide criticism, it would be the lack of vendors and space. There were only four vendors, though they did provide both a white and red wine choice. Many people stopped by, and at some point, it became too crowded to move freely, which you need after a glass of wine! Still, I had a good time. Salut!
