Date Night: Gaspare’s

There are hundreds of fake grape clusters hanging from the ceilings, red and white checkered tablecloths, “That’s Amore” playing loudly in the background. Wine is served in huge quantities.

FREE: Temescal Street Fair

Disregard the date on the poster. They rescheduled to tomorrow. Temescal: It’s that slice of Oakland that’s just north of MacArthur BART and south of Berkeley city limits. Still don’t get the picture? It’s the neighborhood that’s home to both Bakesale Betty and Lanesplitter’s. Ah, now you see. Come out

Kenny’s Trattoria: Quality Italian on the Cheap

Talk about a hidden gem. Kenny’s Trattoria in Williamsburg not only has some brick oven pizza that rivals Motorino’s, but Italian apps and main courses that are tastier than Bamonte’s. Yeah, I said it.  I mean, ambiance-wise, it’s a completely different experience than either of those places– it’s not ultra

Dumb Cheap Pizza Lunch Special Is Afoot at Lil’ Frankies!

Perhaps you’ve noticed the rash of $1.00 pizza joints around town nowadays. It’s really testing the limits of the age old maxim of “there’s no such thing as bad pizza in New York City,” which is true when you consider what the outland territories (read: flyover states) dare to call
