LakeFest '08

OK Kids, Tamale Girl, our NEW food booth is going to be at the H U G E debut of Oakland Event's first 2 day festival. OE is a brand new events planning company started by the chica with the energy that does not quit, Helen Wyman. Helen's vision of helping Oaklanders have positive, creative and sustainable festivals and events makes me even prouder to be part of the Oakland Local First posse.

Yes, this is completely biased on my part since I work side by side with her and a handful of other amazing local folks on both OE events and also on the Oakland Merchants' Leadership Forum marketing committee. My partner in Crime and Volunteering, Consuelo Jacobs, is also part of this group doing the think local thing and is the vendor coordinator this weekend at LakeFest '08.

If you want to check out a part of our posse in action this weekend and have a great time seeing what this district of Oaktown has to offer, STOP BY. If I wasn't working the Tamale Girl booth, I so would participate in the affordable wine packages available that include a commemorative LakeFest wine glass you get to keep.

Hope to see you this weekend!
