Art, Music, Food Trucks, Local Brews --- that describes a great Friday night at the Oakland Museum. Every Friday the museum becomes a big block party for the community. Museum admission is half priced, vintners and microbreweries ply their products, local bands play on the lower plaza and food trucks line the streets. It's one big happy place. All ages are welcome so you'll see families, young hipsters, retired cops, business types and neighborhood folks. Great place for date nights or gathering with friends. The night I was there I grabbed a Snakebite (beer mixed with hard cider), devoured a filipino taco and sat outside in the cool evening listening to the latin band. Fantastic way to experience Oakland's best and it's a cheap night out as well! Every Friday night – not to be missed.
