So, when Oakland-based photographer Eva Kolenko and Liz Stanley of lifestyle blog Say Yes To Hoboken collaborated on a cool “sites and bites” feature showcasing standout venues in Oakland, we were immediately intrigued. Kolenko wandered around the East Bay and hit up places we call faves, too — like Boot & Shoe service and boutique Oak Common.
Along with shooting it though, Kolenko penned little tidbits about what makes each place so incredible. Take a visual journey over to some of Oakland's coolest spots thanks to this fun photo diary. The best part? Kolenko will continually work as a contributor for the site, so the discovery never has to end!
