I've been scouting out the waterways of Alameda lately...I'm learning about how boats get around while looking for docking options for a bit of a sailing outing I'm organizing with Elias Reitz as part of the big OPENWATER event going on this weekend.
what's the OPENWATER event? it's the newest brain child of the chefs and artists of OpenRestaurant. There's going to be a temporary restaurant conceptually oriented around issues of WATER with panel discussions, video and sound installations, and contributions from some truly inspired individuals. The full schedule is here, the dinners are going to be amazing, but you can also just come by and visit this space. (check out the photos below of a series of walks I've taken around the area...it's a special part of our bay area.)
