“Hey honey, take a walk on the ‘YLD’ side”

With profuse apologies to Lou Reed, but no apologies to the Stiefels for crashing their Shabbos (more on this later). 🙂
In the Oyster’s never-ceasing quest to filter out the pearls from the general sediment and detritus of Jewish life here in the murky bay waters of Galut, I managed to find a treasure-trove over at the East Bay Jewish Federation‘s Young Leadership Division. Avast, mate’ys, Jewish booty! Thanks to the stalwart efforts of my groovy-kiruvy friend Lori, I was able to find out about a whole slew of activities that they are putting out. Today they are starting a series of “Smooth Mondays“, where young Jews can come schmooze with booze at some swanky Oakland joints. Give a big-up to my man Yoni M. when you’re there. And, of course, this Sunday, there’s the Picnic Fest; “pack a picnic lunch and enjoy free beer, entertainment, and ice cream,” as they say! I’m going to stop by after chillin’ at the To Life! Festival in Palo Alto. I love it when Federations plan their huge festivals on the same day at the same time… 🙄 And all of this is up on the calendar, so keep checking it for upcoming events!
