Obama Inauguration - What To Do In Oakland?

Hey everyone.  I'm in Washington DC at the last minute just to really cover the experience of it all -- no tickets to events, but then I'm press, so I need a credential.  Didn't think I would be here as recently as Wednesday, but things happen fast:  

So with that, if I were in Oakland, what would I do?  Wow, a lot.  There are a ton of events today, Sunday, and through Tuesday.  There's the Tuesday evening event called "Barack and Roll" at ZCafe, and produced by the East Bay Young Democrats (here's their Facebook Page ).  Then there's the giant event at Oracle Arena that Tuesday morning. There's also an event at The Uptown Nightclub, and again on Tuesday night, and here's their Facebook Page . 

At any rate, there's more than I have time to post.  But the Berkeley Daily Planet has a great breakdown of events , here's a list of some of them:

• Sunday, Jan. 18, 4 p.m., Beebe Memorial Cathedral, 3900 Telegraph Ave., Oakland.

• Monday, Jan. 19, 11 a.m., Acts Full Gospel Church, 1034 66th Ave., Oakland.

UC Berkeley is holding its own inaugural event at Sproul Plaza. UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau will welcome the community and refreshments will be served.

“We are going to have a large community viewing of the inauguration and swearing-in ceremony on a 15-by-20-foot screen at Sproul Plaza,” said event coordinator Danielle Wiskerson.

Across the bay, Inauguration West, a Jan. 20 evening event from 6-10 p.m. at the Metreon in downtown San Francisco, will commemorate Obama’s inauguration and will benefit local charities. California State Assemblywoman Fiona Ma, Golden State Warrior Stephen Jackson, and 49er football legends Ronnie Lott, Dwight Cark and Roger Craig, among others, plan to attend.

More later!
