Take in a major league baseball game in one of the most beautiful and unique stadiums in the country. AT&T Park sits right on the San Francisco Bay -- so close that the stadium counts "splash hits." How fun is it to see a hard-hit ball sail right out of the stadium to splash down in the water? In this weeknight game, the Giants will be hosting the Braves, making this a matchup between two of the National League's best teams. The Giants have won two of the last four World Series, and they'd love a chance to make it three. While the Giants are strong, so far the Braves are one of the top challengers for the pennant this year, with an offense that will test even the Giants' elite pitching staff. See stars and fan favorites like Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval play live and don't forget to grab an order of the stadium's famous garlic fries. Learn More

Alameda Elks club? High opera? How good can that be? I expected recorded music and a few good voices giving it a good try. Not at all. This was excellent singing and a well staged performance in an unlikely setting. This is the bargain of month and a great opportunity to hear one of Verdi's best in a fairly intimate setting. Sure they had to put the orchestra to the side since there is no pit but that worked and the orchestra played well. I am not a Verdi fan, finding many of his plots embarrassing and the music less compelling than the best composers (not a common opinion with the critics) and Trovatore is no exception in terms of plot but the music makes up for it flowing powerfully for most of the piece (it weakens in the overwrought last portion at times) and the singing is truly impressive by all of the Virago cast. Highest Recommendation.
