Monday One A Day Fun Report for Thanksgiving Week

Happy-Thanksgiving-2014-Celebration-HD-Wallpaper

Of course, this week most of us will be planning to eat way too much, and then, of course, adding to the couch potato sedentry,  the Seahawks and 49ers will be playing Thursday evening.

My best self thinks it would be a good idea to get all of us out of our seats so our walks don’t turn into waddles.  Even if the events I find aren’t technically exercise, if we park far enough away we’ll get  a bit of a workout and get some blood flowing through our clogged arteries.

Let’s see what fun free events we can find for this week.

TUESDAY NOVEMBER 25TH
Snowflakes on Market Street

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 26TH
Shreve & Co Art Doll Window Displays in SF

THURSDAY NOVEMBER  27TH
Free Dinner in Oakland.  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

FRIDAY NOVEMBER THE 28TH
Calorie Burning Walking Tours

SATURDAY NOVEMBER THE 29TH
Holiday on 4th Street in Berkeley

SUNDAY NOVEMBER THE 30TH
10 Tons of Snow on Treasure Island

Free Fun in the Bay Area

blue angels

Hope you enjoyed Fleet Week.  It was quite amazing to see the Blue Angels soaring over Sunday’s  Raider’s Game! Unfortunately, the Angels must be Charger fans because as soon as they made their impressive sweep the Raider’s started to lose.  The defense didn’t,  the offense couldn’t, and what looked like a 1 in the win column flipped back to a 0.

Well, Go Giants, and Go 49ers.  Hope these teams do us proud, but whether they win or lose we won’t let it effect our good time! Lets see what else we can do to have fun in the Bay Area this week.

TUESDAY OCTOBER 14TH
Playtesting Bash in Oakland

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 15TH

One a Day Fun in the Bay Area


USA! USA!

I hope all of you dads enjoyed your Father’s Day. I got spoiled by my family in the morning with presents and coffee and breakfast in bed. In the afternoon my wife and I traveled to San Jose to participate in a Real Estate Seminar today and Tuesday. We’ll be watching the World cup as well. San Jose is a big Soccer town, so we’ll catch team USA vs Ghana at the World Cup 2014 Outdoor Viewing Party and enjoy the noise and fun of excited fans all rooting as one. 

Here’s this weeks free fun in the East Bay.

TUESDAY JUNE 16TH 
World Cup Viewing all week at the San Francisco Civic Center

WEDNESDAY JUNE 17TH 

THURSDAY JUNE 18TH 

FRIDAY JUNE 19TH 
For you Burning Man people there’s the East Bay Burner Social in Oakland

SATURDAY JUNE 20TH
Perfect for Summer:  Woodies on the Wharf in Santa Cruz

SUNDAY JUNE 21ST
USA vs. Portugal at your nearest sports bar or living room

If you’d love to live in this amazing area, I’d be honored to help. I’ll set up an REAlert system for you that will search MLS real estate using requirements tailored to your individual needs. It’s the best way for you to get a look at first-time-on-the-market properties that meet your specific criteria, AND they’re delivered directly to your email courtesy of Coldwell Banker!

If you’re specifically interested in high walk score homes, click here to find those that are currently on the market in great East Bay neighborhoods.

One a Day Fun in the Bay Area


A Father’s Day Treat


As most of you know who are regular readers of this blog, I’m a big WWII history buff. That’s why I was delighted to learn that the USS Hornet berthed right here in Alameda is having a “Living Ship Day” on Father’s Day, June 15th. There will be a $10 BBQ, a free magic show, and a band performance. Living Ship Days demonstrate what it was like to go to sea on an aircraft carrier.

For those days before Father’s Day, here are some fun, FREE and CHEAP activity suggestions.

TUESDAY JUNE 10TH
Art, live jazz and snacks from the Doug Adams Gallery in Berkeley 

WEDNESDAY JUNE 11TH
Free guided walking tours of Jack London Square & Downtown Oakland

THURSDAY JUNE 12TH
5$ Thursdays at the Asian Art Museum

FRIDAY JUNE 13TH
Free fireworks after the Giants Game at AT&T Park

SATURDAY JUNE 14TH
SUNDAY JUNE 15TH
FATHERS DAY!!

And to all you Dads out there, have a happy Father’s Day!

Whether you’re moving in or out of this amazing Bay Area, I’d be honored to help. 

For SELLERS, I’ll help you prepare and market your home for sale that will give it the widest appeal and best exposure; thus attracting a bevy of buyers and the best chance for multiple offers and competitive bidding. To learn more, go to go to What’s Next Homes.

For BUYERS I’ll set up an REAlert account that will search the MLS real estate site–using requirements that you provide–for properties that meet your needs.  Once found, pictures and details will be delivered directly to your email courtesy of Coldwell Banker! 

It’s the best way for you to get a look at first-time-on-the-market properties; which saves you wasted time and the disappointment when you find the perfect home but discover it’s already been sold. This is a common occurance when using the usual home finding sites like Trulio, Zillow, etc.  They are fun to search, but their information is often out of date. Not so with REAlert.

They Call it Gourmet Ghetto, But it’s Not Just About the Food


Good Times in 94709 

The Berkeley Coldwell Banker office is located in one of my favorite zip codes, 94709. In fact, this office location is one of the reasons I became a Coldwell Banker Associate Broker. It’s about the FOOD.  Alice Waters inspired Gourmet Ghetto by creating her famous restaurant Chez Panisse as a reflection of of French Country life. 

All the other shops and restaurants in the ghetto have a reputation for choosing their quality goods as carefully as Alice does her produce. It’s a shopper’s paradise and close to some of the nicest homes in one of the most quintessential areas to live in Berkeley. 

I mention it today because this Saturday is the 18th annual Chocolate & Chalk Art Festival on Saturday, May 31, 2014. Anyone who has a hunk of chalk (or for $10 you can buy some) can make art on the sidewalks along North Shattuck Avenue and Vine Street.

There’s also music for your enjoyment including The Dylan Platt Band, Lee Waterman Trio, Kathryn Rayne, The Queue, The Elderberries Irish Band, Cathy Morris the Violin Lady, Sean Lee’s One Man Band, Adrian West Trio etc, etc.  For the kids there will be pony rides, inflatable bounce houses, jugglers, face painters and many more surprises.

Come enjoy one of my favorite zip codes at this really fun family event.

Whether you’re moving in or out of  94709, or any other great East Bay Area, I’d be honored to help you.

1-A-Day Fun this week in the Bay Area


5th of May & Every Day Fun

The Cinco de Mayo festival in Richmond has grown in popularity. I regret to say I’ve never been, for Sunday–when they usually hold the celebration whether it’s the 5th of May or not–is a realtor’s busy day. 
Each year I’m determined to take a break and enjoy the food, the sights, and the dancing that remind me of the many wonderful trips I’ve taken to Mexico. In fact, right now, just thinking about it fills me with the desire to begin trolling online vacation deals that will take me south of the border once again.
  

In the meantime, here’s a list of this weeks fun, FREE, or very cheap events right here in the Bay Area.
