Of course, we're coming to your sartorial rescue — so you can focus on chowing down — with three must-copy outfits to sport to a trio of already-acclaimed joints. We've coordinated the clothes to match the aesthetic of each buzzy venue — from the Pantone-themed libation haven Trick Dog to Oakland's sleek and tasty Ramen Shop. Have a look-see and get inspired—and we'll see you out on the town! !
Uptown Oakland is getting cooler by the second with new additions stirring things up left and right. And if soulful Spanish cuisine is up your alley, crossing the bridge to dine at the much talked-about new eatery, Duende (which literally translates to art), should be penciled on your to-do list, pronto. Graphic décor, rustic furniture, live music, artisanal wines on tap, and tasty tapas — this place has some snazzy offerings that are wildly impressive. Just stepping into the restro is sure to lift spirits, as it houses a color-soaked interior that showcases the space (the old Flower Depot) in a beautiful way. It's a real feast for the eyes. We selected a statement-making boho-esque Mary Meyer dress, with red booties, and charming accessories that fit right in with the spicy nature of the restaurant. Art and chow, here we come!
Duende, 468 19th Street (at Telegraph Avenue), Oakland; 510-893-0174.
