Fruitvale Days


A lot of folks I meet who haven’t spent much time in Fruitvale, or in East Oakland in general, ask me what it’s like here. Well, this photo shows what it was like today on The Half Orange patio.

Interesting note: Germans initially populated much of Fruitvale, and for many decades the town was a regional destination for its beer gardens which basked in particularly sunny weather against a backdrop of fruit trees. It’s pretty easy to picture on a day like today.
