If you guys are ever in the Oakland/Berkeley area, check out Homeroom if you’ve never been. Definitely worth the visit.
I’d recommend starting off with the Professor, a limeade and blonde blend; perfect for a warm sunny day.
Pick your Mac accordingly. For my first visit, I tried their special which featured BBQ chicken, smoked cheddar, roasted red onions topped with cilantro; I also added some bread crumbs and an egg.
Warning: it is a heavy portion especially if you’re adding extra toppings and chasing it down with some brew. I suggest splitting an appetizer and a Mac dish.
The price can range from affordable and reasonable to pricey. The venue is very communal and the staff is friendly. Fair warning though, Homeroom attracts a big hipster crowd.
Other than that, hope yall enjoy.

Having migrated from Arizona to the San Francisco Bay Area, this person of Apache decent had requested that I photograph him/her. The reason why I say that is because I don’t want to offend anyone’s gender identity.
Nevertheless, what’s inspiring to me about this person is the positive attitude that was conveyed by a stranger to a stranger. Peace.

Octavio Ocampo • “Forever Always”
Was dining at buddy’s restaurant for the first time (Baja Cactus, Milpitas, CA) and noticed this Ocampo lithograph on my way out. I had to snap a photo as it sat so naturally crooked on the shelves behind it.
Octavio Ocampo is a perfect piece to hang in a Bay Area Mexican restaurant being that Ocampo himself was an artist from Mexico who also studied at the Art Institute of SF.
By the way, if you guys ever decide to try Baja Cactus, get their chimichanga!
At the Oakland airport waiting for departure…
Decided against carrying a D-SLR for this trip so I’m bringing along my S110 instead featured here in a makeshift sleeve (lol) to protect it from being scratched in and out of security checks…
The first picture is shot w/ my girlfriend’s Apple iPhone 5S and edited on my iPhone 5 while the second photo is shot with the S110 and edited on my iPad Air–as you can tell, I’m taking advantage of the S110’s WiFi capability.
Stay tuned for more snaps from the trip.
