Good Things on 24th Street in Oakland

Today I had the opportunity to experience sweets and cinema on 24th Street in Oakland, between Broadway and Telegraph. It started with a visit to Sweet Bar Bakery on 24th and Broadway where Chef Owner Mani Niall generously welcomed in my Culinary class and gave the students insights into his ever-evolving career as a chef.

This was followed by a late afternoon visit to the New Parkway Theatre, just down 24th at Telegraph, to see The Master, which I did not enjoy. However, I did love my plush seat in the balcony, the fresh popcorn and the $6 ticket price. Welcome back Parkway!
