Sabrina DuenasQ. If this were your last day on Earth, where in Oakland would you dine?
A. It’s a toss-up between Grand Lake Kitchen – the bone marrow is amazing, or Sequoia Diner – those sticky buns!

Q. Where is the first place you take your friends and family from out of town in Oakland?
A. A walking tour of Downtown and Uptown. There is so much historic architecture and lots of great spots to grab a drink!

Q. What’s your favorite secret spot in Oakland?
A. I like getting an helado at Nieves Cinco de Mayo and eating it at Fruitvale Bart Station plazita as I people watch. 

Q. Where would someone most likely find you on the weekend?
A.  I’m always out getting a coffee, checking out different farmers markets, and plant shopping at different local nurseries. 

Q. Describe your Oakland in 3 words?
A. Communal, creative, rooted.

Q. Where is one of your favorite travel destinations in the world?

Q. Best place to shop in Oakland?
A. Any of the cool local pop-up markets at Jack London Square. You can find food, drinks, vintage and hand-made finds. But I'm biased because my parents took me there as a kid and I have amazing memories of the old wooden building that housed cool little shops. :)
