the interactive sound installation being constructed on the Joaquin Plaza

Joaquin Plaza under re-construction

Lars, City of San Leandro: The project going on at Joaquin Plaza is an interactive musical seating zone. Pretty exciting! There will be 30 new seats (once the fence comes down on Aug. 1). Watch for a not-yet-announced grand opening on August 3 around 5:30pm. Also, Lars mentioned that we’ll be seeing more art on our utility boxes. Ten boxes will be hand-painted, 15 more will have the polymer wrap (CalTrans boxes require this). One more: those street banners that hang along Davis and E. 14th Street? They’ve been redesigned and we should see new ones soon.

Drake's Brewery: a fermentation tank

Drake’s not so secret tanks

Dow, Drake’s Brewery: Did we mention First Fridays? The next one on August 5th benefits SLED. At San Leandro’s own hidden gem, and letting you in on two secrets: Drake’s has increased their brewing capacity—now three times larger—with a new fermentation area that snuck into the back of what will have been Sports Authority. Secondly, watch for information on their birthday bash coming up on Aug. 26th (probably). Dow also mentioned the fabulous Drake’s Dealership in Oakland’s Auto Row—the fabulousness was seconded by others at the meeting.
