Where we Are:
... read carefully(really). we're easy to get to and tough to find but well worth it
Where: The Milk Bar is located in East Oakland in the Sunshine Biscuit Factory
Complex. We are approx 1 mile from the Oakland Coliseum on 81st Ave, 1/2
block east of San Leandro Ave. Map quest / google maps can be deceiving in this area.
Take 880 south through Oakland. Exit at 66th Ave.
At the end of the exit ramp turn left at the light onto 66th Avenue. Continue east on 66th Ave., go past the Coliseum and turn right onto San Leandro Ave. (just before the BART tracks). Follow San Leandro Ave. south, go past the Coliseum BART station. 81st Ave is the second left after the BART station.
Turn left onto 81st Ave., noticing the Sunshine Biscuit Factory complex on your left (that's where you're going). It now has mustard trim and a large sign saying "Your Storage Place, and "U-Haul".
Pass the first driveway (for U-Haul), and turn left at the 2nd driveway (about 50'). Our entrance is on your left(above the U-Haul store): it's the single steel door at the top of the stairs to the left of the mailboxes and gated tunnel, and to the right / behind the U-Haul store. A large sign next to the door says "FACP".Don't continue on through the tunnel or park inside of fenced parking lot. We'll have an usher in the correct lot from 8 to 8:30pm
We are in studio # 223. There is no buzzer - Latecomers call or text (510) 205-7103 or 510 289 5188. We will let you in an appropriate break.
BART / transit Directions:
We are biking/slightly long walk from BART. Take BART to the
Coliseum/Oakland Airport stop, exit onto San Leandro Ave., and proceed south
approx 2 intersections to 81st Ave. We are the 2nd driveway on the
left, after turning left on 81st Ave. Please do not hesitate to call if you
are at all confused, we are available for rides back to BART after the show..
