YouTube Meetup at Oakland's Lake Chalet Saturday, December 12th

There have been YouTube Meetups, but never one in America's most exciting city, Oakland, California. The Oakland YouTube Meetup at Lake Chalet at 1520 Lakeside Drive in Oakland, and is on Saturday, December 12th 2009 from 2 PM to 5:30 PM. What's the plan?  To meet, eat, and video!  But the idea is to meet YouTubers from all over and especially Oakland, San Francisco, and Northern California.   But it's also a party for non-YouTubers to learn more about how YouTube and YouTubers can help promote their business; you learn by watching us in action and mingling!  It's also a YouTube contest with prizes for the person who uploads their video the fastest.  Join me and other YouTubers like Sarah Austin for a cool event in a really awesome place: Lake Chalet: Visit our Facebook page here . More information to come, but contact me Zennie62 at

SF Chronicle's Michael Bauer loves the Petrale Sole Piccata at Lake Chalet

SF Chronicle's Michael Bauer loves the Petrale Sole Piccata! He writes: "When it comes to main courses, petrale sole piccata ($21.95) shows (chef Jarad) Gallagher's cooking chops. The thin fillets are crusted in Parmesan, which becomes nutty when browned, then set on potato puree surrounded by a buttery foam and a crunchy nob of watercress."
