Yoshi's Jack London Square, Oakland
Why not make a day of it in Jack London Square?  
  • 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. traipse aboard the tall ships and  
    share your tales of the high seas with the crew
  • 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. forage for provisions and lunch at
    the Jack London Square Farmers Market then stash the
    booty in your car and
  • Take in a Family Jazz Matinée at Yoshi’s!  For $20
    ($18 when you have an ever so convenient child with you –
    who will cost an additional $5), You and the family can take
    in a first class performance at an awesome performance
    space.  The show begins at 2:00 p.m. but the line begins
    before 1:00 p.m.  Here’s a hint:  buy your ticket, wait in line,
    get your hand stamped, take the little tags they give you,
    mark your seats, and then grab lunch at the restaurant (they
    DO have a nice $6 lunch for the kids, but the adult food will
    cost you a lot more) or walk across the street to Jack
    London Square or to any of the dozens of great restaurants
    like E&J’s Barbecue and grab a quick bite there before you
    head back.  Of course, the music is top notch and the
    performers really play to the audience.

A note on seats:  you CAN go for the café tables near the
stage but they can be uncomfortable and the volume can be
loud.  There are a bunch of booths just behind the café
tables – a lot more comfortable and roomy.  If you can’t quite
get it together to go grab a bite and come back, they DO
have table service with a decent menu.  There is a one drink
minimum – even the kids.  For a complete listing of acts and
to buy tickets (you can buy tickets at the door), visit  

 if you live in San Francisco, the SF Yoshi’s has a
similar arrangement for Sunday matinees.  For a listing of
SF matinees, check out:

Note: Parking at Oakland is pretty easy,  There is a
validated garage right next to Yoshi’s where it will cost
you about $5.75 for lunch and the show.  On a Sunday, you
can also do street parking.  

San Francisco’s Yoshi’s has parking under the club.  You  
can try your luck on the streets, but that could be
