Oaklandish x Farley's East for the 2010 Innovator Awards

Oaklandish and the recently opened Farley's East ( have collaborated to make an Uptown inspired shirt that goes directly to a great cause, the 2010 Oakland Innovator Awards. Printed by hand on an American Apparel "cranberry" colored shirt. Available in a v-neck as well and only at Farley's East at 33 Grand Avenue downtown. Supplies are super limited to make sure you get down there soon. If you've never been, Farley's is a fantastic cafe with a great neighborhood vibe without the strip mall, corporate chain feel of newer coffee outlets. Perfect for breakfast, lunch (we love the chicken panini), and pre-theater drinks. Farley's offers a huge selection of magazines, art exhibits, and friendliness.

Oaklandish Rig

After a disastrous break-down of the 1966 Clark Cortez Oaklandish rig and waiting six hours for a tow-truck big enough to tow it, we got it back and running!

The Piano Man (spotted here in his classy, yellow car) is letting us post-up in front of his store and Piano school on the corner of Piedmont Ave. and Pleasant Valley. We will be there every day except Mondays until Christmas.

Here we are putting the rig to sleep on our corner. Gotta tuck the rig in right for the cold nights!

Come see us there to get your holiday gifts! We are in front of the Piedmont Piano Company Tuesday-Friday and Sunday, noon-6:00 (until 7:00 starting 12/18), and Saturdays 3:00-6:00.
