What To Do In Oakland On Saturday Night

PKAfe643X3-10
My besties will be beasties Saturday night when we hit up Oakland’s Beast Crawl, a free literary festival in it’s 5th year. 150 writers will take over 40 bars, restaurants, cafes galleries and store fronts starting at 5 pm. There are 4 legs of the crawl including the afterparties from 9 pm-2am at Telegraph (all ages) and Legionnaire Saloon (drinks and dancing).

The Beast Crawl website says, “To curate these literary events for Beast Crawl, we invite a diverse collection of local reading series producers and literary rock stars including the Oakland Youth Poet Laureate Awards, Tourettes Without Regrets, Nomadic Press, Kundiman West, Quiet Lightning,  Small Press Distribution, Lip Service West and many more.” I’ve always wanted to check out Tourettes Without Regrets but haven’t made it to Oakland Metro on a first Thursday yet.

If I make it to all 4 legs…

Plan 1 (literary stuff I’m interested in checking out):

Leg 1 (5-6 PM) Red Light Lit at The Venue
Leg 2 (6:30-7:30 PM) Liminal at Darling’s Elixirs
Leg 3 (8-9 PM) Tourettes Without Regrets at Starline Social Club
Leg 4 (9 PM-2AM) Afterparty at Legionnaire

Plan 2 (new places I’m interested in checking out):

Leg 1 (5-6 PM) Kundiman at Taiwan Bento
Leg 2 (6:30-7:30 PM)  BustingOut at The Golden Bull
Leg 3 (8-9 PM) Brown People Don’t Read? at AU Club
Leg 4 (9 PM-2AM) Afterparty at Legionnaire

See you there! Somewhere.
