3 delicious reasons to eat in the East Bay. 


ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL? 

With football season almost upon us (and pre-season already showcasing the excitement to come) Jack London Square's hub for all things games, plank, has unveiled a brand new tailgate menu just in time for opening day. The offerings include shareable favorites such as cheeseburger and BBQ pulled pork sliders, chicken wings, and Stadium Nachos—an unearthly concoction of crisp corn tortilla chips, chipotle braised chicken, black beans, pico de gallo, jalapeños, sour cream, jack and cheddar cheese, scallions and salsa. The touchdown-inducing menu will be served during all NFL games on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays starting September 13th.  Sit back, relax, and order one of plank’s 50 handcrafted local draft beers on tap to complete the viewing experience! // 98 Broadway, Oakland, plankoakland.com
